How do you tell if a motor is clockwise or counterclockwise?

You can determine shaft end perspective by simply holding your motor up in front of you and pointing the shaft at you. If the shaft is pointing at you and rotates to the right, your motor is clockwise shaft end, or CWSE. If the shaft rotates to the left, your motor is counterclockwise shaft end, or CCWSE.

Why do engines run clockwise?

“The idea of reverse rotation is, when you accelerate hard the weight comes to the left front and left rear, and pulls weight off of the right front. This more evenly distributes weight across the chassis, increases your lateral traction on the front and back end. You go faster.”
