1400kv should be fine for 6s. I'm using a 4s/1900kv setup because most organisations don't allow anything over 4s.

I don't think it's needed on a new kit. I think I drove my car more than I thought and the grease probably dried out making the diffs hard to turn under pressure.
But I will keep doing this during...

Yes, I know. But it's pretty soft in the rear. Diffs also depend a lot on your driving style, so you'll have to experiment what works best for you.
