Default RC boat flex shaft

Hi, Im building my first RC boat and I'm getting a bit confused on the flex shaft as you can find negative axis and positive axis, I understand that is the rotation of the cable but why is this important ?

The cable is twisted in one direction. If it is twisted in the other direction it will untwist and expand making it grow and stick in the stuffing box. Has to turn in the direction that tightens the twist.
