Do you like to drive? Do you like to push your limits? Do you like to have fun? Then we have your fix; the Fix Enduro presented by Pro-Line Racing.

A glimpse into the history of the Fix Enduro, simply known as, “The Fix”. The Fix started the rc scale endurance event scene with the first ever 18 hour rc scale endurance event held appropriately at Warrior Point on the mystical Pyramid Lake, Nevada. Where 5 drivers embarked on an endurance event that tested their mind, body, & scale adventure rig to limits never seen before in the rc world. All 5 finished after starting at 9pm on Friday and finishing 3pm Saturday. The products that they used on their scale adventure rigs that withstood the 18 hours of abuse, became the first RECON G6 Certified products. What does that mean, you ask? Well, simply put, when you see the RECON G6 Certified Stamp on your favorite RC company's products, those products have been real world tested by drivers just like you in a real world endurance event.

This will be my lady and my first official event since we started crawling a few months ago. Are there any vehicle build rules other than no 2.2 tires? And what is clear dirt? Lol
Thanks!

Clear dirt is hard to find in Socal unless they build something artificial. It still isn't a bad idea to bring a waterproof truck just in case.
