We're extremely proud to see the Venture FJ Cruiser take its very first competition win!
Recon G6, the leader in RC scale adventure events, hosts major events in outdoor environments using natural terrain - a far cry from the groomed, carpeted and watered environs of "pro" RC racing! Taking place rain or shine, each Recon G6 event is unique, and a true test of the capabilities of your trail "rig" or truck.
For most of the Recon G6 events, there is no competition for first, second or third place - every driver who finishes the long and rugged trails is a winner! But that all changes when it comes time for the events that Recon G6 drivers call The Fix Enduro...
Fix Enduro events are unique in the G6 schedule, because they are designed to be tougher, longer and much more difficult for the trucks that attempt the course AND the drivers as well!
For this event, taking place in Apply Valley, California, there was a 1-mile loop over rough and rocky desert terrain, encompassing loose sand, narrow ledges and tricky outcrops.
Drivers and teams could sign up for the 3, 6 or 12 hour class, competing to do the most laps within the time limit.
Representing HPI Racing was our R&D team of Thad Garner, the Senior Designer and the brains behind the Venture!
Driving in the 1.9 tire division in the 3 Hour Solo class, Thad was able to do more laps than anyone else, earning himself and the Venture a well-earned victory!
