New Nomad Vs Tracer VP??

I'm thinking about a new do-it-all frame - something which really does have to be able to cope with all day XC rides and also occasional DH days.

I quite like the idea of the adjustable travel on the Tracer VP, so that I can taughten it up for trail centre use etc, and slacken it for DH.

However, the new Nomad seems to be "the bike to have" to do everything on yet I'm worried it'll make xc stuff feel dull and boring.

Can anyone tell me how the Tracer VP stacks up against the Nomad in terms of down-hill performance?
