I'm often asked what hardware to buy for a racer, so I've put together this post and will periodically update it with our current inventory. This is gear I've used and personally feel is worth the money, it's why it's in our store. Yes, there are cheaper options than "good", but I don't necessarily feel they are the best inexpensive option.

So why do they exist? Why don't you carry them?
Because reverse threads stop props from spinning off when you throttle up and down a lot, like multirotors do. Of course reverse threaded nuts are very hard to find and just add one more thing that you have to keep around. We made the decision to not carry reverse threaded motors whenever possible, to keep things simple for our customers.
What about active cooling, like the Red Bottoms from EMAX?
Many motors with active cooling work in either direction. There are some that don't, and if we carry them we'll carry both directions and note this in the product description.
