This is my P4. It looks huge but doesn't feel it when riding.

How did you configure yours?

All the negative volume, left the positve spacers in, will have a bounce around later and try taking them out.

Actually there is no GnarDog, only two spacers in the positive. I removed both of them and put three bands in the negative chamber, pressure is 135 psi, sag 30%. It’s working great for my weight (I’m only 56 kg!): using full travel when I’m supposed to, good compromise between playfulness and small bump sensitivity.

Meant to post up the same, need to find my picks to extract the tokens. Going to try one less and 1 band in the negative chamber.

Currently I'm at two positive tokens, 0 negative, 185psi at 93kg. Using full travel. Could do with a a slightly lighter rebound tune and finer adjustment IMO, current in between 2 and 3 clicks from full open and two clicks of lsc from fully open

The frames arrives yesterday, is possible that today they send some frames to the owners.

I have to wait a little bit more I buy a full build.

I am guessing that you ordered only the frame? What components are you putting on it?

Man I am hyped for when I get that shipped notice

I also got a shipping notice for my frame. The final ingredient of my future shred sled will be here Tuesday (fingers crossed)!

Does anyone has experience with a coil shock yet?

My friend with a 161 has a MegNeg with no reducers, which is between the standard spring and a coil. He likes it. If a MegNeg is a step in the right direction, then a coil should also work. The motion ratio curve is progressive enough for a coil to be reasonable.
