Alright! I've been waiting for some Intel so I can plan my trip.

Since I have to be in the Bay in March, I'll be able to jet over to the RECON G6. It'll be my first Taters & Kilts G6.

Thanks for the Intel Parker.

M.Yaw of "Just Scale It" is rad,


very helpful on stage,


and a G6'er.


Here is his girlfriends rig. She's a G6 Drivin' Diva!


They will be getting their scale adventure fix in the Taters & Kilts G6 & will be giving G6'ers a chance at a "Just Scale It" challenge.

What will the "Just Scale It" Driver Challenge be? I am curious, too, but we will have to wait and see.

Might be working. That's bad and good. Bad if I miss, but good because I had to buy a new washer.

Good point.

I participated in the 2013 Axialfest and that was over three stages.

I guess time will tell. We'll find out soon enough if it's 500 gates.

Funny thing about rumors. They can range from 500 trail markers to pharmaceutical use, to being a driver.

So I quess when you see it, is when you believe it! Just sayin'

Yup, I concur, seeing is believing and being prepared helps too. You never know about them rumors. They have a tendency to be true.
