    It's not done but it's getting closer.
    I've got a 30t up front for 2 upcoming races normally I run a 32 or 34t.
    The Spank Oozy wheels are fast, stiff and light! I'm in the process of lacing some Spank Subrosa Evo rims to e13 hubs which will rock Schwalbe HansDampf's. The WTB's will be replaced by another lightweight tire. I can't stand the tires constant need to push through corners. I like the tires to slide then grab when cornering not just let loose and never come back.
    Finally, I'm not totally thrilled about the Talas. I've only got one ride on the new fork but I think I may dump it for something else.

    Why'd you go with coil? Reason I ask is I'm thinking about picking up a '13 RC4 for the Firebird, possibly to be used for lift access riding.

    The simple answer is... because I already had the coil.

    I have both a Float CTD Kashima fancy-pants shock and the RC4. Fortunately, one of my ti springs was the correct length and weight too which helped keep the weight down.
    I've been finding grabbing my 5.7c to ride everywhere. Places I used to grab the 4" bike for, or the hardtail or the freeride bike.. whatever, I just grab the 5.7c now. The coil gives me a lot of opportunity to change different aspects of the bikes handling which emphasize the ability to shred anything.

    The CTD rear shock was 98% awesome before I swapped out the coil. The bottom out control on the CTD sucked on maybe 5% of the trails I ride....

    ... and then I installed the RC4 and I started to notice more differences between the two. I can't say they are downfalls as I was always finishing every ride with a grin from ear to ear and no complaints.
    The RC4 seems to make the bike feel "snappier" when making more forceful movements like floating the front end and transferring weight off the rear tire to get into a drift and slam through corners, or manualing through stutter bumps and roots. I can also bump up the bottom out support and get a little bike more "bottomless" feel.

    I feel like I have more traction but it's probably me just me being optimistic.

    Cool, thanks! I guess if you are someone who wants to tweak their suspension settings then the RC4 is a huge step up from the CTD.

    bmxconvert,

    What length are you running your fork at? 150 or 160?

    Yeah, I thought so! Esteban over at wheelbuilder.com was super cool to work with and let me pick out exactly the parts/colors I wanted. I don't have a thru-axle rear end so I got a 10mm thru-axle hub and put a Hadley thru-bolt in it. The overall stiffness of the wheels is really nice. The bike changes direction instantly and accelerates like a demon.
