so its pretty common that you should not run a QR axle with 8 inch rotors, does this apply to the Totem's Maxle? I cant imagine that RS would expect you to run these forks with 6 inch rotors. However i can not find this info on the net so maybe one of you guys can help me.

No, the Maxel is a quick release through axel. It's much different than a rugular QR and plenty strong for 8" rotors.

As ATR said, no problems. Go for it!

it depends on the wheelset / hub but in most cases no
