Event Coverage – Axial RECON G6 Series & Terra X, Bloomsdale Missouri
The scale scene is huge right now and there is no hotter event for scalers than the RECON G6 Series. Luckily the RECON G6 tour made a stop near us in Bloomsdale Missouri last weekend so we got a chance to drop by and check it out. The big sponsors of the RECON G6 Tour are Axial and Pitbull Tires.
We dropped by on Sunday when the RECON Terra X was being held and boy was it something. Terra X is a radical form of off-road racing that uses both man-made and natural obstacles to create the course. Unlike a “normal” rc track, it’s quite an accomplishment just to finish a Terra X race, and while the course may have been small, lap times were quite long.
The Terra X course in Bloomsdale consisted of a big concrete “mountain”, then some rough grassy/dirt areas. Drivers had to use a steady throttle finger, good lines, and lots of finesse to make a clean lap around the course. It was truly hardcore off-road racing, and after talking with some of the competitors, they unanimously enjoyed the course.
