front is on right, rear is on wrong ;)

it's all to do with forces exerted etc.

nope the fingers of the rotor should point in the direction the wheel turns, thus passing the force from the disc to the hub, if you have it the other way around there is potential for the disc to snap or crumple under the forces.

think about it ;)

i just need to fiddle with the e-type mech a bit more, the frames not really designed for it, so i'm gonna have to bodge....
