Hello,

I have opportunity to swap Charger RCT3 to Charger 2 RCT3 in my Lyrik Dual Position Air, is Charger 2 worth the upgrade?

I know that RC version is way better than RCT3 - high speed compresion settings...

Please let me know guys.

If you end up buying it, make sure you get a Charger 2.1 and not the Charger 2.

The Charger 2 has a problem of leaking oil at the compression knob at the top, and less than a year after the Charger 2 was released, they released a quickfix with the Charger 2.1 (while usually it's a few years between upgrades). I'm not sure they acknowledge that problem (a bit like Fox and the air-in-oil Float X2 ...), but to be on the safe side, get a 2.1 if you go for it Smile


From a performance standpoint, you won't get much going from one to the other ... they're very similar, and for some reason they thought it would be a good idea to reduce the piston diameter in the Charger 2 ...

Thanks a lot for feedback. I'll keep it as it is.

If you are desperate to spenf money get the new push hc97 damper system much better than any 2.2.3.5.6.7 rs monthly update of their damper!
