Going Deep: Inside Fox's GRIP2 Damper
@sebazzo: Yes and no. I would agree with Fox that this kind of adjustment is arguably more useful on the rebound than on the compression, but it could definitely be used well in compression adjustment too. The difference is that some degree of digression in compression is generally accepted as a good thing, but there is less consensus on that for rebound.

Going Deep: Inside Fox's GRIP2 Damper
The HSR adjuster in the Grip2 is basically linear, and behaves completely differently to the X2's preloaded (digressive) HSR adjuster which in this article is what they mentioned as being exactly what they were trying to get away from. There's no need to use that method in the Grip2 forks, it isn't beneficial there. IMO this is an excellent means to adjust HSR, it's basically equivalent to revalving the HS circuit. The setup method mentioned in that Tuesday Tune video was for the sake of simplification and getting a decent usable setup from the X2. It isn't the only viable method of finding a good setup, nor will everyone out there necessarily prefer the result it'll give you - it just helps minimise confusion caused by the amount of crosstalk between the HSR and LSR adjusters on that particular shock, without doing anything dumb, dangerous or unpredictable.

The Tuesday Tune Ep 24 - Frequency, Vibration and Harshness Part 2
You are correct that there is always a very slight lag in the damping force build up, especially at high frequencies. Running a bladder instead of an IFP however has absolutely zero effect on this. Its only effect is a reduction in friction, it has no effect whatsoever on damping.

Video: 27.5 vs 29, Suspension Set-up & Measuring Progress - The Privateer Episode 4
To give you some insight on why we wanted less tokens in this particular setup, the short version is: 1. Adam wanted more support in the middle third or so of the travel, which comes from running a higher air pressure (this fork doesn't have much in the way of compression adjustment, the LSC adjuster doesn't affect dynamic ride height much) 2. Longer travel air forks are inherently more progressive than their shorter travel variants 3. At the pressures required to give him the support he wanted, given the longer travel, the fork was too difficult to bottom out, ergo too progressive 4. To reduce progression, we removed tokens and popped the footbolts to reduce air trapped in the lowers. It really is a personal thing, dependent on a ton of variables including your terrain, fork travel, height, strength, weight, level of aggression, personal sensitivities (for example, some people just do not ever seem to get sore hands, some people's hands hurt after 10 seconds of rough trail) and priorities. If you're going to race flat out for 2 minutes, it's often fastest to put up with some discomfort. If you're going to race for 15 minutes, you may not be able to hold on at all by that time with a particularly stiff setup. Hope that clarifies a bit.

Fractive Tuning from Vorsprung: Upgrade your Fox Fit4 – Press Release
Pretty well every OEM LSC adjustment opens up much further than it needs to in order to have a useful range, yes. Including the RC2, Charger 1, Charger 2, Motion Control, Mission Control, RLC, etc etc.

Fractive Tuning from Vorsprung: Upgrade your Fox Fit4 – Press Release
There are several standard Fit4 tunes, but the characteristic curves used in these kits are substantially different in shape, as well as scaled for your requirements.
