I flipped my belts because of the 'new improved' bulkheads I bought. With these bulkheads I found the pinion interfered with the belt, so I switched them around to solve that problem. You simply swap the belts over and flip the diffs, easy. As a bonus it is also much easier to change pinion now with them flipped. Downside is that you cannot use a one-way without modifying it, you basically have to switch which side the pulley sits on the one-way and them shim it out to the correct position, there are pictures earlier in the thread, no idea where though.
