RECON G6 Challenge "Embrace the Suck" Jan.28 Nor-Cal



RECON G6 Challenge “Embrace the Suck”

The G-Train has been painted camo with the help of Axial Racing, Vanquish Products, and Pit Bull Tires we are locked, cocked, and ready to rock in honor of all the men and women serving in our Armed Forces as we head to the Sacramento, CA area to “Embrace the Suck”; as in the first RECON G6 Challenge™ of 2012.

On behalf of all the G6’ers and our sponsors, I’m proud to welcome home, Jason Brown, aka catpwred and from all of us, a huge “Thank You” for your service to our Country. G6’ers have heard your name at drivers meetings just before the National Anthem and now we get to pop your G6 cherry! “OORAH”! We will also be collecting toiletries and batteries and shipping them to the troops of Jason’s choice.

- Each stage will test driver’s ability to navigate through various terrains such as mud, sand, and tarmac.
- A driver will be tested mentally, physically, and spiritually during each stage.
- G-Central and pits will be centrally located, giving each driver an opportunity to pit prior to starting the next stage.


I am honored to be part of such a special RECON G6 Challenge™ and regardless of your political beliefs, we have the freedom to drive a G6 Challenge because of those brave men and women who fight for our freedom and this is our way of saying thank you to them.

It’s a new day, a new year, and I need my scaler fix in a RECON G6!

-Parker

I'M CAPTAIN AXIAL AND I WAS SENT HERE TO MAKE YOU THE BEST G6'er THAT I CAN! FAILING IS NOT AN OPTION! PULL UP YOUR TIGHTS,LOSE THE TRAINING WHEELS, LADIES, AND LETS GET TO IT...BUT FIRST, CHECK OUT THE FLIER HERE FOR MOTIVATIONAL GOOSEBUMPS!

http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showp...79&postcount=1

YOU CALL YOURSELFS G6'ers? I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!!! THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT, YA'LL ARE THE LOWEST FORM OF R/C SCALERS IN THE 1/10 TOILET BOWL KNOWN AS CRAWLORADIANS! I WILL DRIVE THE CRAWLORADIAN OUT OF YOU AND INSTILL A SENSE OF ADVENTURE AND A LEVEL OF STAGE RESPECT THAT YOU HAVEN'T SEEN SINCE R/C CARS WERE TETHERED!

ONLY SOME OF YOU WILL COMPLETE THE FIRST DRIVERS MEETING CHALLENGE OF THE YEAR, MOST OF YOU WILL NOT FIND THE TESTICULAR FORTITUDE IT TAKES TO FIND THE KEYBOARD OF YOUR HIGH SPEED, STATE OF THE ART, COMMADORE 64! FOR THOSE FEW THAT COMPLETE THE TASK AT HAND, YOU WILL FEEL AN OVERALL SENSE OF CONSTIPATION THAT MAY BE RELIEVED WHEN YOU ATTEND THE EMBRACE THE SUCK G6 DRIVERS MEETING.

GOOD LUCK AND LET THE GAMES BEGIN!



Embrace the Suck G6 "DMC"


1. What is your favorite branch of the Military and why?

2. What is this?


3. Battle scars come in all shapes and sizes, what caused this battle wound? A-Grazed by a .50 cal sniper round. B-Sasquatch. C-Over agressive Doctor during a prostate exam. D-Slim Jim.


4. Axial Racing has dropped a bomb on the r/c world with the EXO Terra Buggy; name 3 of the 4 items located on the parts tree that would put a smile on GI Joe's face. What patriotic 1:1 event has Axial Racing been part of for the last two years?

5. The Embrace the Suck G6 is honoring Jason Brown, aka catpwred. Jason just returned state side from a one year tour and has highly anticipated driving in a RECON G6 Challenge. Tell Jason in one sentence, what the G6 means to you.



CAPT. AXIAL IS PROUD OF ALL OUR MEN AND WOMEN SERVING OUR COUNTRY AND FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, THANK YOU FOR FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOM.

AS FOR THE REST OF YOU SELF ACCLAIMED G6'ers, WE WILL SEE WHAT YOUR MADE OF THIS SATURDAY.

YOU HAVE UNTIL 2200HRS ON WEDNESDAY TO FINISH THIS TASK. GOOD LUCK AND REMEMBER; WHEN YOU NEED YOUR SCALER FIX, GET IT IN A RECON G6!

OORAH!

The RECON G6 Challenge has bridged the gap between reality and scale in a way that no other r/c event has done. The adventure that a driver faces during a stage is ever changing. Whether it's assisting a fellow G6'er or driving into the unknown; alone with your imagination and the suspense of what is around the next corner. The "Embrace the Suck" G6 was put on in honor of Jason Catpwred Brown and all the men and women of our Armed Forces that fight for our freedom. This is a recap is cocked, locked, and ready to rock!

The Embrace the Suck G6 lived up to its name months ago. Dropping 270 trail markers requires a little planning and I am very thankful that Catpwred and Crawler13 and Miner Mike did some great intel gathering on various locations, which ultimately landed us at Sugar Pine Reservoir. This location was the best G6 DZ, (drop zone), that I could've asked for and with a lot of bear tracks and fresh bear scat in the soon to be stage area, we may find the answer to the question; Is an Axial SCX-10 Honcho faster than a berry intoxicated bear?

53 G6'ers followed the twisted tarmac through the beautiful Tahoe National Forest and found themselves at the start line of the first RECON G6 of the year. The absence of the "stage buddy" and the addition of classes has me giddy with excitement. 53 G6'ers, some virgins, are ALL lined up waiting to start. The National Anthem has ended, Jason Brown has spoken the most famous words in the RECON G6 Challenge, "Drivers, light your lipos", and the Ultra Drivers are ready to drive 420 trailmarkers. (insert any Mendicino County reference here). LOL.

The Ultra Drivers bolted into adventure and wasted no time poping the cherry on a new class. Thom K, Sam Trujillio, his son Andrew Trujillio, Jason Greer, and class favorite and new daddy, Mike Phamtacular Pham. If you like your G6 with a huge dash of speed, then come out and haul ass in the RECON G6 Ultra Class!

Here are the results of the first ever Ultra Class.





The Team Challenge saw two young drivers share an Axial Wraith in their first ever RECON G6 Challenge. Devon and CJ set out on an adventure, that adventure was to drive through adversity. Adversity is French for a grenaded transmission, but that did not keep the smiles from their faces or taking home a Zonkered Award. Great Job, boys and we will see you getting your scaler fix in the next RECON G6!

The Adventurist Class of the RECON G6 Challenge featured an extra 50 trail markers that pushed the G6 Adventurist futher into the Tahoe National Forests natural beauty. That is, ofcourse, if you define beauty as mud, ice, and moss.

On the stage, when a driver found themselves in need of a little help, G6'ers were never too far away nor in that big of a hurry to help anyone out.





Just like any good military themed event, having good camo is always important.






The Adventurist Class Driver collected G-Tags along the stage. The more letters they found and if they found them in order, the G-Tags spelled out the sentence, "All gave some". A driver that could finish the phrase recieved a time bonus. One driver solved the phrase, Eric O'Brien knew that "some gave all" and he was awarded a time bonus which turned into a Zonker Award. Drivers faced one stage with different sections and everyone had 4 hours to complete the stage. The stage tamed some G6'ers, while others completed the task at hand. One driver, Deanna Hupp, gathered up some fishing line that cut her driveline in half, but her ace mechanic, Richard Fleming, got her Axial Samuri Stage Assassin back on stage, unfortunatly they both came up 10 mins shy of finishing. Brokennib and Big Bill gave the stage hell, only to miss the finish by 4 mins. Great effort from all the drivers that fell to the stage cut off time.

Here are the results;




Every driver had to find an army man to finish, because in the Embrace the Suck G6, no man gets left behind. We celebrated Angela Hill's Birthday and I was honored to find out that a special anniversary was being celebrated, as well. A G6'er had open heart surgery a year ago and he was celebrating by driving in his first RECON G6 Challenge. Catpwred also drove in his first G6 and I think the mandatory 25 jumping jacks was a walk in the park.

The RECON G6 Challenge is motivational to some, inspirational to others, but to me its an adventure addiction that blurs the lines of reality and scale in to a renniassance of fun. Define what the RECON G6 Challenge means to you, come get your scaler fix, in a RECON G6!

The fastest growing class in the RECON G6 Challenge is the Wraith / 2.2 Class. Dan Wilson has been on a reign of terror with "The Wraith", as his Axial Wraith has dominated the class for the last 3 G6's. Dan showed up at the Embrace the Suck G6 ready to make a statement, but there was some heavy hitters that planned on putting a kink in Dans domination.

Elio Diande retro fitted AR-60 axles under his SCX-10, which reminded me of this OG Bender build;

http://axialracing.com/wordpress/201...wroncho-video/

Elio has a talent for prepping SCX-10 based Ford lexan to handle everything that a RECON G6 is known to dish out, but could he and the rest of the Wraith / 2.2 Class stop Dan.

Rig Rocker's Axial Wraith has been G-Rated and is always a contender and let's not count out Big Joe Duck Slayer who is coming off a great driving performance in the RCOTC. This is going to be a class to watch.

As they class to off, Dan showed off his driving talent as he saved a 9 ft bicycling Wraith and as soon as all four tires hit the ground, he was off again like a prom dress at midnight.

The Wraith / 2.2 Class has remained an adventure class with special driving skills tests as well as driver challenges and the ever present break out time, but as fast as this class is growing, there may just be a Wraith Ultra Driver class just around the corner.

Here are the results;


I had 3 drivers volunteer to run multiple classes as a test to see if this could be offered at future G6's. A healthy thank you goes to Axial Team Driver Thom KoWatch, Elio Diande, and Rick Mercado. Thom K. drove the Ultra Driver Class and then lit the lipos to his Axial Wraith; while Elio and Rick drove in the Wraith / 2.2 Class and then ran the 1.9 Adventurist class. All three drivers completed both classes in the 4 hour stage time. This was a very impressive task and not for every driver, but a driver that would like to run a 1.9 and a 2.2 class may just have that option in the near future.

Thank you G-Crew, Brad and Cole, and Stuart. A special thanks to Tree and Zonkered for their help. Thank you Axial Racing, Vanquish Products, BPC, Rock Armor RC, Thom K., Big Bill, & all of our CA local hobby shops. I am honored and very thankful for all your support.

Attention all Wraith owners, come see why the Wraith / 2.2 Class is the fastest growing class in the RECON G6 and we will see you getting your scaler fix in a RECON G6!
