The Good: Smooth.
Easy to tune.
The Bad: Only that it took me soo long to wake up and buy one.
The Fox DHX RC4 is the third shock that I have run on my current rig. And let me start byapologizing to my bike for not buying this shock right away.
Okay, so for the experiences. As soon as I installed it, I promptly took this shock up to one of my favorite trails. The trail has some gnarly rock sections, with some nice big drops too. Perfect for tuning. I had found and copied the Fox tuning guide for the RC4, and found their instructions and suggestions perfect for helping me quickly and accurately fine tune the settings. After about an hour, I had my rear shock dialed in to perfection.
The RC4 takes all the hits I throw at it with ease, never bottoming. I've even cased a few landings on it. And as for trail chatter and rock sections, well lets just say the term for smooth needs to change from "smooth as a baby's bottom" to "smooth as a Fox DHX RC4."
