We reached out to FOX to get your question answered:

"No. The FIT4 and RC2 use different damper designs with different adjustment options so they don’t use the same shim stack. But with the RC2’s large range of high- and low-speed compression tuning options, a rider should be able to closely...more

My b. I thought you meant the other whoops section about halfway through the vid where he also managed to pick up speed in a section designed to slow you down, lol.

Funny that he's pretty much the only one not hitting the step-down coming into that section.
He just pumps and rolls and comes into the whoops at mach turkey.
Sometimes it's not the manliest or straightest line that's the fastest.

YEA.. I had to rewind and watch him through the whoops twice.. So much faster than the rest and smooth...

Its a toss up between Claudio's track previews and vital's RAW for me. Still my heart leapt when i saw the RAW was up. Great Job Vital.

Also, did anyone else think Gwin was noticeably faster through the whoops?

Great writeup - from your bio it sure seems like you're coming from a place where you really want to wring the most out of a bike like this. Small detail question - did the 5.5 come with a 125mm drop Reverb? Just a small point to manufacturers - XL size frames really command more travel than this. I'm about five months into ownership of an XL Remedy 29 and I wish the post dropped a bit further. Yes, 170mm posts are brand new. I hope these different post lengths get rolled out by frame size.

To add to Sspomer's post, one needs to open their mind up a little bit. There will never be "one bike" (or wheel size) that is "better". Better for me? Maybe. Better for where I live? Sure. Better for the type of riding I do? Absolutely.

Take a nod from other "tool oriented" sports such as...more

Nice vid!
