Default RECON G6 "The Fix" & "The Cure" Pyramid Lake Nevada




RECON G6 "The Fix" 18 hour Endurance Challenge



The Fix G6 is an 18 hour endurance challenge. The format is simple, one stage with multiple loops. Each loop has unique challenges and opportunities for time bonuses or time penalties. Drivers can experience the Fix G6 as a 3 driver team or for the ultimate Fix G6 experience, as an individual.

A Fix G6 Team consists of 3 drivers, one truck, and teamwork. Drivers will share driving duties as they seem choose. For example, drivers can divide driving duties up by time or by the different loops on the stage. What Teams may not do is change a driver during a loop on the stage. A driver that starts a specific loop, must finish that loop before a driver change can be made.

As an individual G6’er taking the 18 hour endurance G6 Fix solo is the ultimate radio control scale adventure challenge in the World. It will be you against a stage of multiple loops that will push you to new driving heights. There is no greater individual bragging rights than finishing the Fix G6 as a solo driver.

G-Leak Alert

The Fix Stage will consist of several loops that make up the stage. One loop will be a "biathlon" style loop. Yes, you will have to drive to shooting stations and hit targets for time bonuses.

The question is, since I watch a specific shooting show, what will a G6'er be using to hit the targets?

Attention all RECON G6 Fix Drivers



Carter Fab & Design has some new nuts, wheel nuts that is. You can read about them here; Wheel Nuts..G6 Approved!!

Endurance G6'ers, these will be available for you to use, but there is a limited supply. Eddie Fisher and Josh Harris, Carter Fab Team Driver used and abused these at the Pit Bull Rock Beast Blues RECON G6 and they performed flawlessly.

If you are interested in running these during the Fix 18 hour endurance event, see me during driver check in.

Thank you, Carter Fab!

Axial Racing has a passion for the hobby and when it comes to an event that is destined to be the industries proving grounds for product testing, they are in. Axial Racing also knows that for future drivers, this is the event every aspiring driver needs on their sponsorship resume. After all, the RECON G6 is for drivers, by drivers and that's r/c gospel. Axial Racing knows this and they are excited to be a part of another first from the mind of someone that RC Car Action calls a "Revolutionary on the Rocks".

I am talking about the 18 hour RECON Fix endurance event. Axial Racing will be rewarding the top solo driver or "iron man" or what I call the "Mouse Man" after Mouse McCoy. Yes, I'm a Dust to Glory nut. Ask Chasinbaja of the Baja Bandits my lust for desert racing.

Axial Racing, Axial Racing - High End Remote Control Products and Accessories , will be rewarding the top "Mouse Man" an RTR Axial Wraith Rock Racer. Here is the skinny on the Wraith, Axial Racing - Axial Wraith 1/10th Scale Electric 4WD - RTR


Thank You, Axial Racing!

Can't believe I'm gonna miss this. Must be something about Pyramid Lake, because whenever a G6 is held there I seem to have to work.
