A tentative enquiry at the mo. Must have disc mounts and be suitable for 120mm forks ..
Anything out there? I'm not in a hurry, I will wait for the right frame,.

Not sure an ARC should take 120mm forks. But that's not to say it will not.
I run my medium ARC (not for sale !) with Fox RL80's with the spacer removed,so they travel about 95mm.

I've got some nice 460mm a-c rigid forks, would they be too long? I'd prefer a slacker head angle, been riding a Nukeproof Mega (66 deg) and loved the secure feeling going downhill and didn't really suffer on the climbs.

You'll put extra strain on the frame steerer tube is was never designed for its all about leverage.
Im talking about forks much longer than is recommended.
