Presently I am running the 135x10 drops on my Rune with 135x10 bolt ons. I am wanting to convert my Hope Pro 2 to 142x12 (easy enough with a conversion kit). I am just wondering who I can source the drop outs from? Trident? Also, does the drop out kit come with an axle? Are the drops RS Maxle compatible?
Will I notice a difference in stiffness going to the 142x12?

Re: 142x12 questions.
On my full suspension Norco Range, going from 135x to 142 definitely stiffened things up, always a question of value. Can't help on where to source them, sorry.

i could see it helping a bit on a horst link design, on a minin link like the banshee not so much
