official Adventure Crawl
RECON G6 Challenge!

A personal note from Brian Parker,
“The G-Train has been on Hawaii Time and it’s not about to get in a hurry any time soon, so the next stop is sunny
Southern California. Laid back, G6’n on my mind, my mind on G6’n! Drivers, prep those G-Rides and comp rigs, surfs up & Axial Racing is catching the malvado wave of r/c fun.

G6’ers, can you take the heat? Can your G-Ride survive 2 G6 Stages in Death Valley? Axial Racing & I think so and we want to see you in Apple Valley, California for one wicked RECON G6 Challenge.

I am honored every time an r/c club wants the G-Train to make them a destination. West Coast RCC puts fun in everything they do and the G-Crew is excited to meet a club that shares our passion for r/c. ALL ABOARD, WCRCC, the G-Train has a car dedicated to ya’ll. Let’s have some FUN!

AXIAL Racing is all about the malvado of r/c crawling. So when they wanted a “wicked” event, they called upon the best; RECON Crawlers. Wicked fun, wicked cool & wicked challenges are what the RECON G6 Challenge & Rock Riot 2.2 Comp provides for all its participants.”

Note: A driver must tech prior to the start of each lap & pick up their driver score card for that lap.
