Personally...

I set my diff first.

- Hold the spur and the closest wheel, Turn the other wheel.

When your happy with your diff

- Hold both wheels and set the slipper, The slipper should slip before the diff.

Thats a good starting point, the adjust the slipper on the track. I like mine to slip about 1/2 meter.

Would this apply even with the geared diff

I have always had problems with this and eventually found the best for me was to tighten the slipper and try the car keep then just keep loosening it off until the car dosen`t wheelie ( 1/8 th of a turn makes a bigger difference than you think !)
Applies to geared and ball diff.
