Yes, I would tune to the instructions and listen to the shift.. Depending on when it shifts, tune accordingly. Tighten for later shift and loosen for sooner shift. Have fun man! Start with stock gearing and see if its enough speed for you. Always watch engine temp.

Gears = Track size
2speed clutch screw = Shift point within Track

As long as you follow the instructions for the gear selection and have proper gear mesh, you should be good. Gear mesh is VERY important.
