Can anyone tell me the difference between the '05 and '06 fox 40 rc2?

Apparently a refined casing. Less prone to cracks?
yeah but i think that is it
i think the 06 has a sticker on the u pper right hand side of the lowers
yeah but the color is still the same
yea everything is the same...i just got my '06 40 rc2 yesterday..compared it to my friends '05 one and theres absolutely no difference..just costs more
It is identical to the later run of '05s. early '05s had a slightly different casting for the lowers.
DONT BY FOX FORX I HERE TEHY BRAKE REEL EASY$@#@!$*!!1one!!
It's now 6 lbs lighter.. and not only is it better than all the competitions forks on Earth.. it's also better than the competitions forks on Mars.
They are not that bad,i have only seen a few pairs broke and thats on the net.I know a very hard rider and hes done good on the all season and they havent broke
I've heard that since they are drab greay, they get bored easily and fall asleep during a run...
they changed nothing except for the stickers i just got a 06 36 and that is the only diffference from the 05. fox emailed me with information that says for doesent change thier products every year because when they come out with the product it is the best it could ever become
hey fox are stronger than most forks they buy other forks from other company to make sure of that they have no weakness anymore is what i heard
40's are so light and stiff and wide.
Well that's a lie. Did they alter the casting 'cos it was the best it could ever become? Thought not..
They were intending to change the hydraulic bottom out rings to smoother bushing type thingies... Not sure if that has made it to the '06 production.
Thing is, Fox suspension makes running changes to their model lineup as and when they see room for refinement. A lot of it is not very apparent. Especially when they change internals. For example, the '05 RP3 rear shock and the '06 one has almost completely different shim piston design, yet they are exactly similar externally.
Every fork company buys forks from other manufacturers.
No such thing as "no weakness." Every fork has downsides, some just have less downsides, and different downsides than others.
