It looks like the orientation of the cups is giving it +2 degrees of angle change. He could be running offset shock bushing reducers or a shorter stroke shock to keep the bottom bracket at a similar height to before.

it looks as if that crown has been machined down to allow for more flex

The Syndicate have been using them. Who else? Look for the small silver bolts on the underside of the lower crown: https://p.vitalmtb.com/photos/users/2/slideshows/12521/photos/34542/s1600_slideshow_photo_1564711171.jpg?1564710869

Good ol gorilla tape. Try 28-32psi in the exo and 23-25psi in the DD. Sometimes those exo sidwalls do that sweaty thing because they are so thin, but it usually goes away after a little while.

should be about 485mm. Stock medium is 435. If that's the case, his bikes reach sits right between a Nicoalai Geometron Long and Longer, and 5mm longer than a Medium Pole Stamina.

The acronyms are confusing AF, TR. What is even more confusing is that Maxxis just released EXO+ with ZERO MaxxGrip compounds and they don't even make a MaxxGrip HR2. I just bought 6 new MAXXIS tires but QBP says I can't get a MAXXGRIP EXO DHR2 for MONTHS, HMU PLZ @ MAXXIS Bicycle!!

DD ASSegai is nearly the same weight as the DH version (30 grams?) so what's the point?
BTW ASSegai Maxxgrip compound is tackier and softer than the previous DH - EXO Maxxgrip Minions.
Hint hint MAXXIS, make EXO+ And DD with the Assegai compound so we can have the best front tires again.
