page 4 in your manual.

basically, remove the module from the back, you'll see two screws, then to the right on the remote, you'll see two more screws. take those 4 out, and GENTLY pull down on the handle... not too far now.. you dont want to pull the wires out.

when you have it pulled just far enough, SLOWLY turn the handle around, and push it back in. then put the 4 screws back in.

tada!

I used to steer my old nikko car (for anyone that would know, the red viper Nikko that they claimed could go 20mph) around with my left hand (the controller was reversible, pulled a thing in the back and push the wheel through to the other side) but when i got to my tmaxx and started racing, i started throttle control with my left hand. I wish my helios was reversible because i would want to see if i could have better throttle control only because my left finger seems to twitch alot.

Throttle left hand steering right just feels right, although having seen some drivers hold their comtroller with their right thumb as the throttle and left hand as steering

correct me if im wrong here but i race with the stick type anyway, but ive had afew goes with the wheel and im right handed, but i would use my right hand for throttle not steering... this seems to be the case for most of the right handed ppl in this tipic and the left haded would use there left for throttle.. lol now who said that the right handed way to hole the transmitter was to steer with your right anyway because it seems quite the oposite from this topic.....

Damn Its great to see that there are more people who are right handed that hold there radio in there right hand and steer with the left We are a dieing breed.Stand up and Yell lol Now if we can only get KO to make a left handed radio we would be set!!!!But I guess since there is only 2 made and Burch is left handed oh well.But like always my M8 has never let me down!

The reason I hold it the way I do is because I find that I don't reverse directions as much than when I hold it with the base parallel to my feet

A local racer here use his radio left but has the steering is reversed. So if the radio was facing you turning it counter closckwise would cause it to turn right.
