pretty obvious you have no idea what you're talking about

they require the same amount of service as a boxxer and it takes about the same amount of time to service.

i don't know where you're getting this durability bullshit from but don't post when you don't know what you're talking about
Boxxers are self serviceable, 40's have sealed cartrages that Fox does not want you getting in to. While doing seals an oil are about the same difficulty to replace, fox recommends replacement of there seals and bushings twice as often as the Boxxers. Not to mention the Boxxers having much simpler dampers than the Foxs those freaken RC2 carts are a pain to work on

fox have a guide on servicing the damper on their website..

No fox has a guide to put in new seals, dust wipers and oil. The damper (the thing that controls compression and rebound) is in a sealer cartrage that fox does not want coming apart unless you are a tech. Seals, spring, dust wipers, and lubricating oil are not the damper.

the reason fox tell you to replace the seals more often is because your avarage biker never leaves his 40's upside down to soak the seals so the end up drying out. i ran 40's for the best part of 3 years and only changed the oil and seals once that included 2 seasons racing
I store mine upside down and go through seals every 2 or 3 months and I blow the cartrage probably twice a year, I am O.K. with this it is a race fork but it is a high maintenance fork.


Don't forget the price difference here too. A 40 is 1600$ where a Boxxer team (same internals as the WC and for like 100$ you can convert it to a WC) Is a grand.

Depends on the hub, I think there are a few hubs that can go from 10-12 if you swap out some parts. Chances are though you will need a new hub

in most cases this is true, but the m1 will fit a 10mm axle ok. but you wont be able to run a saint axle mounted derailleur with it because the axle area is recessed into the frame compared to the derailleur hanger.
