RECON G6
Time: Saturday 09:30 and Throughout the day and Sunday wholeday
 
What is a RECON G6? If you have ever been to one of these events, the veterans will tell you, “It is whatever Parker wants it to be”. For those of you that are new and interested in these events, we take a look at the ins and outs of this revolutionary R/C scale event series. The RECON G6 is an R/C scale adventure that will test a driver’s ability and their R/C scalers capability. A driver will navigate their vehicles through a stage marked with trail markers and perform mandatory skill sections and complete driver challenges along the way.
 
Goal: Finish all predetermined stages and complete the trail including skill sections while maintaining and marking down any points you have received in a drivers log book to keep track and have fun.
 
RECON G6 Scale Vehicle Requirements:
•The rule of thumb here is simple; is it scale?
•Vehicle must be 1/10 scale with a scale chassis or custom tube scale chassis.
•Wheel sizes may be 1.55, 1.9, or 2.2, Tires that fit these wheels.
•A minimum of 5 different scale items must be attached and remain attached to the vehicle. This may include mandatory scale items that may be used on stage for recoveries.
•A tow strap is mandatory on all vehicles, the tow strap may be used to assist or recover other drivers on stage.
•All classes are allowed to use dig and 4 wheel steering on their scalers if they choose.
 
RECON G6 General Rules:
•NO HAND OF GOD. (HOG) A RECON G6 is all about driving. In keeping with the essence of the r/c scale scene a driver may not assist, stop, catch, or kick his/her vehicle. There are no penalties for electric winching or using your tow strap with help from another competitor or for reverses, so DRIVE SMART! The penalty is a DQ for hogging your scale vehicle. Performing on course repairs or having to touch your vehicle for recovery purposes is not hogging. Picking your vehicle up out of water, mud, sand, or rolling it over onto its wheels with your hand is all examples of hogging your vehicle, thus resulting in a disqualification. If this happens, log the HOG incident in your drivers log book and report it to G-Central.
•A driver cannot drive through a trail marker and reverse back through it to avoid trail obstacles. This will result in a DQ. A stage is directional and a driver must maintain the intended direction of travel. Reversing through the trail marker in the intended direction is ok and may be required during mandatory reverse skill sections.
•HAVE FUN! The RECON G6 is the premier scale adventure event in the World.
