I really like the MC3R on my Top Fuel Team Issue 2005. Yes, it is a stiff ride for that race bike. I adapted a remote to tune it between locked and various fidelity levels of adjustment. With only 90mm of travel though usually it is almost locked or all open.
You might try a pushed rp23 but again with that little travel on the bike there is only so much you can do. Maybe you should look at a longer travel bike.
Another thing you might try is dialing in allot of rebound. I find that almost all the time downhill on the fuel I stand to soak up stuff. Also on long downhills I dial the fork up to 115mm instead of 85mm for climbing and that helps.
Still a great bike for smooth single track and fire roads it is my first choice since I don't do hardtails anymore.
