Anything that tests my riding ability, a good scare is fun.

Manitou Mattoc Pro - Review
I was on about the 888s, if you like them then fair enough I just couldn't get on with them no matter what I did and then the stanchion coating flaked off. So I got a warranty set and sold them, one thing that might be worth doing is getting your Marzocchi tuned as I'm sure that would dramatically improve that characteristic.

I wonder if it would be possible to run different stiffness's of foam to alter the way that the fork reacts?

Manitou Mattoc Pro - Review
Axle to crown on the 26" mattoc is 545mm in 160mm travel, the old fox 36s were 545mm in the 160mm position but I believe they dropped it by a few mm this year. So the Mattoc's aren't like the older reverse arch Manitous that were a good amount taller than other forks on the market.

No offence but the RC3 evo v2 was a bit of a flop in stock form, lacked control through the midstroke then would ramp up stupidly fast and the compression adjuster was annoying as you would adjust it to increase low speed compression but the way it worked the high speed compression would be made less the more low speed got wound on. Changed to Dorados, best decision ever.

They mean only the air spring is copied from a Dorado. The damper uses technology along the same lines as a Dorado but there are a few differences.

Unless you've tried a set how can you make a statement about manitou not being a competitor against fox or rockshox. Sure they don't hold as big a market share but that doesn't have any relation to performance of these forks.
