As you may or may not know, since its inception, the RECON G6 Challenge
has been the pinnacle event series for serious fun with your Axial
products. We know and understand that it is not just about the vehicle, but
what you do with your vehicle; and RECON G6 Challenge provides some
serious FUN!!! If you have not yet to made it to one of the RECON G6 Challenge events
in the past two years, this next one will be your last chance to experience
the RECON G6 flavor for 2012. For the upcoming December 8th event in Reno,
an international guest will be flying in from the other side of the planet
to get his first scale adventure experience as well as some of our newfound
scale adventure friends from Las Vegas. We know a few folks from Southern
California are attempting to make the trek as well. The Sacramento basin is
always in support of the RECON G6 Challenge events and participants will be making
their journey over the Donner Summit to attend the BDAY BASH II.
Safe travels and godspeed to all!
