should the diffirential be tightened out of the box? Meaning should I tighten the differential from the stock settings? I just installed it as it came from the factory. Thanks for the help!

The diffs come pre-built, but not pre-tightened, they will need to be broken in and tightened.

The diffs come pre-built, do not simply run them in and tighten them. you need to take them apart re-grease them and then run them in and tighten to prefered point

If I'm reading right, Luke claims all new 007 diffs should be taken apart, have grease added, put back together, ran for a while, then tightened. This is the first time I've heard anyone recommend adding grease to the 007 diffs. Is this the right procedure?

Go with a 112t spur and pinion sizes 32-35t. Unless its one of the super duper torquey motors, or you're accustomed to riding on rims, you shouldn't need a 36t.

For smaller tracks (less than 100ft straight) and tire sizes between:

* 59.5mm & 60mm use the 32t
* 58mm & 59.5mm use the 33t
* 57mm & 58mm use the 34t

For larger tracks and tire sizes between:

* 59.5mm & 60mm use the 33t
* 58mm & 59.5mm use the 34t
* 57mm & 58mm use the 35t

The target rollouts I've seen have been anywhere between 31mm and 33.5mm, depending on motor torque and track size.

If you use a smaller spur than 112t, the torque from the motor will strip even the hardest of spurs in a hard crash, due to less surface area contact between the spur & pinion.

Also keep in mind that if the brushes are sprung too soft or you have the motor geared too low, then it will heat up easily and *seem* as if you are geared too high. I always try to stiffen the springs, before going to a smaller pinion. The brushes wear down kinda fast and you'll need to shim the springs every 3 to 4 runs.
