Would you use a Nixon Elite over a Vanilla 130R?

Assuming the Nixon is the QR version, is there a dramatic performance difference between the two? The Nixon has TPC with 115-145mm of travel adjust, plus adj. rebound & compression. The Vanilla is fixed at 130mm and just has adj. rebound. It's been a while since I road a TPC fork -- is the TPC offered now the reg. TPC or the TPC+?

I'd go by where you live. If the fork is likely to see lots of mud, go with the fox for sure. In my experience, manitou's forks go to crap very quickly in poor conditions.

run the nixon. search for threads about i have commented on it multiple times. mine takes a daily beating and keeps on ticking. unlike most fox forks my buddies have which creak and spit oil everywhere
