Default Resetting Hitec 5645 to factory

I just purchased a plane that had a Futaba receiver and all Hitec 5645MG servos. I don't fly Futaba so I pulled the receiver and replaced it with a Spektrum AR8000.
I noticed that the servos were moving much slower than I thought they should and that some continue to move after the transmitter stick hits the limit. I called the previous owner and he said that the servos were programmed for a Futaba receiver. Unfortunately, he isn't available to reset them for me.
I have questions:
How can I set these back to factory?
Is there anything I should do to them for use with a DX8 transmitter? I have never programmed servos and always just use the transmitter to program.
Can they be made faster? Maybe I'm spoiled-I use Savox almost exclusively and they seem so much faster than these. And they just work without having to worry about a programmer.
Any help appreciated!
Steve

Unfortunately you will need to borrow or buy any one of the Hitec Servo programmers:
