Master chef – Brent Brammer

This year at the Axial West Coast Championship was epic as usual especially for me because I was privileged enough to make the trek from Orange County, California to the beautiful mountains of the Sierra Nevada’s, nestled off of Highway 80 between Reno and Lake Tahoe. After a 14 hour ride knowing what we were about to embark on, straight up good times with a lot of great people doing great things for the RC community, period.

When we made that turn around the road and had the full view of Lake Tahoe we all knew we were in the right area for the best of the best in rock crawling and also the Axial SCX10 G6 Challenge that Mr. Brian Parker of RECON Crawlers had in store for all of us. “What’s that” you ask? SCX10 G6 Challenge, well stay tuned because if you have not been informed of this new segment yet you will no doubt because this one is here to stay.

Here is a shot of some of the rigs that were getting ready for the first G6 run on Friday night, it started at dusk and finished under the lights about two hours later. It was absolutely a barrel of fun for anyone that participated. But at this point I have to back track to the reason I was included in this journey and that reason was, well I can cook.

Just add heat!

My grandma’s would have been proud to what I prepared and the amount of appetites that were present each and every meal. The menu was well rounded and full of surprises. We went camping yes but we also ate like we were at home for Thanksgiving, take a look for your self.

Yep that’s right Turkey day in June along with baked ham and mashed Tatars plus veggies, camping – YEA’ RIGHT! OH yea, I forgot to mention the gravy and homemade brownies for dessert.

Some of the people there were already friends of mine and some are now new friends and for that I am truly grateful!

Here is couple of shots of one of our dinners sitting around shooting the breeze and having some grub. Talking business, talking RC and some just plan talking smack in a good way. Either way we had the time of our lives for a few days out of our crazy busy schedules and a chance to get away from the daily grind called life to make some really good friends and a whole lot of memories that I will carry with me forever.

Who would have ever thought I would get to assist the magazine guys in setting up a radio!? We did discover a little roadblock in which the radio they had was an older model, of which we contacted Harley for a work-a-round solution.

    Brent, you have got my vote for the next Top Chef and if an easily excited Chef wants to get loud with you, I’ll take him out back in the alley and we’ll discuss the scraps, if you know what I mean.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I enjoyed every meal and I know you come from a family that appreciates not only food, but a meal. The best compliment that I can give you, is that several times through out every meal, your cooking reminded me of my Dad.

    I love you for that and am proud to call you family.

    Thank you Axial for an AWCC for the ages!

    -Parker
