Question Re: Can a flip-flop hub save my spokes?

Thanks for the info. I had heard that flip flop hubs have an opposite direction thread (left handed?), so running a engine will not cause it to become unscrewed. As a result I am a bit confused. Also, if I were to use a flip flop hub AND the clamping hardware to mount to the spokes, would this be enought reinforcement to keep the sprocket mounted and still not stress the spokes?

All suggestions welcome, thanks!
