I used to recommend 3500, but have since lowered it to 2500. I agree that 3500 is cruising speed, but at 2500 you get a more accurate balance, and I find that it is still accurate (enough) at 3500 that you won't notice any differences if there are any,

As for parking the stepper motors, I have done it parked, connected and disconnected and found no difference.
