Rear engine buggy's

How does this work? When you've got the drivetrain facing backwards in the vehicle, then wouldn't you have several reverse gears, and one forward gear? I've heard of guys using 9" axles with the diffs flipped and overfilled, but aren't you now running on the coast side of the gears? What if you use a Dana style axle?

How do these things work?

all you have to do is position your motor/tranny/transaxle so the its facing counter clockwise and it will feed your axles ( whatever you run ) forward or normal. the down side of doing this is you put the block/heavyer end of the motor all the way towards the back. but if your runing a ALU motor its not bad on the wheaght. built right it and it should be fine, you just have to picutre how the motor runs and install it so the motor will still feed the axle's CCW and it will go forward using all forward gears and reverse under its reversing gear, hope this make sence, jason.
