Help - Reversing an Astro 60

Hi Guys,

Another question regarding my Astro 60. I just got a Modelair-Tech belt drive (Thanks Sabrejock!) and need to reverse the rotation of my superbox equiped Astro 60.

I read I need to find the "neutral point" of the motor. From what I understand, this is done my loosening the 4 long motor bolts and rotation the black casing slightly until the amps are at the lowest.

First Question: I plan on running the motor at 36 cells. Do I need to find the neutral point using this many, or will say 12 cells be fine.

Then I understand that to find the proper timing, I should rotate the casing untill there there is a no load draw of about 2 to 4 amps? Does anyone know a good target?

Here's where Im lost. To reverse the rotation of the motor, is it just a matter of moving the motor cases to either side of neutral point. IE, turing left will make it turn left, right turn right?

Anyone care to suggest a few props for this setup?
Astro 60 11 turn, 36 2400mah, 2:1

Thanks for your help!
