ok so i want to get either the boxxer world cup or the fox 40 rc2
i do alot of downhill/freeride and jumping.
anyone have any help??
You really can't go wrong with either. Both are great forks. Both have great CS. If weight is a factor, you may consider the Boxxer WC, if your worried about stiffness, you may go with the Fox 40. Either way, you will be pleased. Both Forks are great!

I ran a 40 for two years than a wc last season. I wasn't impressed honestly. Yea it was light and smooth but it was soooo flexy and required a ton of maintenance. I think you will like a 40 better.

My 40 is pretty touchy. It gets 2 or 3 oil changes a season to keep it nice and smooth.

IMO, neither are worth the money. The other Boxxers work just fine, though at a weight penalty.

High end forks require care and maintenance to run at their full potential. If you're not mechnically inclined, don't have money to spend on maintaining a fork (or have a shop that can do it), and you want the fork to work its best, then a Fox 40/Boxxer WC probably isn't for you.

With the White Bros. Prepare for NO small bump sensitivity. They are STICKY. Hopefully that can be remedied in the future. I would run oneif they felt better. They are made here in my town...

40, Boxxer, 888, all great forks, you can not go wrong with any of those. I have ridden them all I like the 888 rc2x alot. It will sag under it's own weight but never bottom out, thats what I like out of a fork. That X cartrige kills it for sure...
