Can anyone clarify the differences between the Fox Factory lineup and the Fox Performance Elite? From what I can find it appears the only difference is the Kashima coating? The Fox website has no information on the Performance Elite lineup. Any further clarity would be appreciated!

I believe it's just the stanchion coating. I have a 2017 factory 36 and a 2017 elite 36 and as far as I can tell the internals on the damper and air spring side are identical. The external adjustments are also the same. I have 2 orange volume tokens in each one and the same air pressure and they feel about the same. For some reason the elite feels just slightly stiffer but its still brand new so time will tell.

They are the same in the Trail / AM departments (34 & 36). However, Fox 40 DH forks have significant differences between Factory and Performance Elite. They have different damper technologies and different external adjustment options, both favoring the Factory series. They are by far two different forks.
I have no insight regarding Fox shocks.
