I’ve got old sets that I set up with sealant, that’s gone bone dry and they stay inflated. If I was running them, the smallest puncture would bring them undone.
Also, if you’re using 300ml of sealant, wtf? I might use a little over 1/2 that, combined front and rear.

Is the engine meant to do that?

Yeah, that wouldn't be a good feeling!

Makes me laugh though how they always list the model of plane, but never the engine manufacturer/model... Boeing cops it for something either the engine manufacturer or maintenance squad are responsible for!

Sram 12 spd chain with shimano 12spd drive train, yay or nay?

Shimano cassette with GX crankset yay or nay?

Thinking it might to go for commonality across the fleet...

Shimano 12sp ring and chain seem only compatible with each other from my research a few months ago. I wanted 11sp on the new shimano DM cranks, so I fitted Bergtec DM ring, which plays nice with 11sp chain.
The crank/cassette is fine.

I prefer pretty much all shimano drivetrain, other than an XD cassette. I’m only talking 11sp here though. I’m not interested in 12sp.

I used to work for Carrier when it was part of United technologies (which included Pratt & Whtney and Sikorski). Did a 5 day quality course which included quality leaders form all of the companies. Was surprised to learn the acceptable percentage of inflight shut downs from Pratt & Whitney...

From some of the setups I've seen through work, you can run other chains on a Shimano ring, although the grip on the teeth may be less than optimal. But you can't run a Shimano chain on a ring that isn't specifically designed for it.

What I’m hearing is, cuss 12sp.

Ok... if there is, what is the difference between Rockshox Lyrik Charger 2 vs 2.1 RCT3? (Other than the extra 0.1).

And how can you tell which one you have? I can't use the serial number on the RS website as the CSU is a replacement.

It's all way fancier than anything I have, so I can't answer you based on experience.
