    2011 Fox VAN RC2 Fit 36 160 with RLC cartridge???

    I am buying a new 2011 Fox VAN RC2 Fit,the seller swapped the cartridge to a RLC cartridge,fork was never installed and has a uncut steerer.I wont mind having a lockout but what should I expect in performance?I ride a SC Nomad and am coming from a Float RC2 fork.Would it be wise for me to order a RC2 and switch back?Anyone ride both RLC and RC2 cartridge,wondering if I would even notice a difference?

    Anyone running a VAN that can give me feedback on the fork itself?

    The RC2 is reportedly a more preferable dampener system; it's more adjustable than the RLC because it has the high speed compression settings. Personally I've got RLC on my bike and I don't find it to be lacking in any area, but then again I've not had a chance to play with the HSC settings.

    I guess I will try it first.Im hoping the one compression setting will be good enough.Im hoping since it is coil they tend to have better small bump,I wont miss the HSC...I am going to see how I like the lockout on climbs.If I tend to not use it much,I may order the RC2 cartridge from Fox...Im hoping to get some feedback from people who have used a 36 VAN fork,compared to its air competition.Had a older VAN and loved it but want feedback on newer...I could never get my Float RC2 to feel rite,it was either soft enough to feel plush on the smaller stuff but would blow through the mid and ramp up something terrible,or the opposite,big hit stuff would be great but I felt every little pebble on the ground!
