Had a pair of 2011 R2C2s but managed to destroy them due to no fault of my own Mad

Now I'm on the hunt for some new forks,

Money is not a issue.

Should I stick with R2C2s or go with something like 40s or WCs?

What are the upsides and downsides with each fork?

I'm leaning towards 40s purely on looks but i have no idea what distinguishes the two in the way of performance, weight, etc,

throw your two cents at me 2 cents

Cheers

what bike are you putting them on?
is it going to be used purely for racing?
if you dont mind servicing often then go for wc's. and they are light if you worry about that.
fox are really stiff they have 40mm stanchions. so if you want less flex than your old boxxers go for 40's.
i have used 40's and like them but the stiffness sometimes hurts your wrists if you are weak.
if you were going for 40's get the kashima ones because the other ones have alot of stiction/friction?

I haven't been on the newest stuff on the market but I have an 08 boxxer as well as a 09 40 the boxxxer is much lighter and smoother, as was stated before the 40 has a bit of friction but you won't notice it at speed. I run the 40 because it is so much stiffer, the weight difference isn't enough to change my mind.
