Default Backwards FTW?

Gday,

are nitro motors meant to run backwards? this stupid cheap starter box is to blame...

I have to rewire it now so the motor spins the right way... lol

Two stroke engines will run in either direction. Depending on the intake valve timing (rotory valve) some will run better then others. Some will run better at idle and some will run better at speed.
