My friend you are incorrect! the driveshaft still turns forward or reverse. anyway you put the axle on the driveshaft will still turn the same way hence. Forward is forward and backward is backward. Your tires will still drive forward in drive. you just will drive the weight of the vehicle on the coast side of the gear. Think about it.
