Time is a greatest commodity and not to be wasted on things of transient nature. ;)

The piston on top of the air spring rod is plastic and held with a pin, you push it out, cut 9mm off, drill a new hole for the pin and that's it, The negative and top out spring are few centimeters further down and are held by another pin so it doesn't affect the travel: http://www.pinkbike.com/photo/10061930/ By puting oil in the air chamber i can fine tune how linear/progressive the spring is, less volume, less air presure to achieve sag and vice versa. There is low speed and high speed rebound on the fork. The speed refers to the speed of oil traveling through the system. To recover from smaller bumps oil flows through the middle of the rod and exits through the orifices just at the sides of the rod near the little spring. The needle is opening or closing those to slow down the oil. When the fork is recovering from a bigger impact the oil presure is higher and therefore it rushes through those 3 holes i made bigger on the rebound piston and it opens up the shim which sits on top of those. When the oil speed is slow that shim keeps the holes closed. Compression side works in the same manner. Hope this answers your questions :)
