How much resistance should there be and how should it feel?

As said, follow the instructions....

Your diff should not slip at all, insert two thin screwdrivers into the slots of the out drives and try to turn the diff gear by hand, if you can turn the gear, its loose..

You should not be able to turn the gear by hand even with considerable force...

Racers edge makes a nifty diff building tool that when you slide the outdrive slots in the tool it holds the outdrives so they dont move then you try to spin the diff gear with your hand, if you cant move it your good. Had that tool forever works great. the part # is RCE7030. Hope it helps

HEY GUYS WHEN ARE THE SHOCK BLEEDER CAPS COMING OUT?

I use piano wire for this same purpose. The diff setting ends up way too loose though. It's much quicker for me personally to tighten the diff screw till you feel the spring fully compress. Then back off one-half of a turn. Near perfect everytime. But this is just what I have found to work best for me.

Default what is ideal?

I have seen that site before and like it. However, I always wondered how they decide what gearing is "ideal". Anyone know?

The "ideal" gearing is decided by the motor manufacturer, and therfore, is slightly on the conservative side.

I would start with what it says then measure the motor temperature. If it's less then 160f you can gear up. Be careful if it goes higher, getting to 175 is not good, getting to 200 is bad and can ruin the motor.

My guess would be that you heard wrong. I have heard that they're working on some updated parts, but not whole new platforms. Cool as that would be, I don't see that happening for a few years...
