Unless there's really no issue with running one of these motors backwards.

I assume the one propshaft has reverse threads.

Me too, but someone earlier in the thread was explaining that just reversing the polarity would damage the brushes - we will have to wait and see!

If they are the same motor why do they sell them in packs of two? If they are the same just reverse polarised at the ESC pins then there's no need for packs of two. Anyone opened one up yet?
