What's the concensus of using a 32h vs 36h? Do some people use a 36h rear and a 32h front for DH use?

I've been using 32h Arrow FRX rims front and rear on my slalom bike but now I'm moving into DH and am unsure if wheel strength will be an issue. Any ideas?

For DH racing, everyone I know run with runs 32h on their DH builds. I've always run 32h and have never chubbed a rim. I think good rim selection and spoke maintenance will have more of an effect on durability than 4 extra spokes.

32h 3X on my DH bikes for years and no problems----I think the DH rims are so strong the 36h don't get you anything----IMHO
