RC Car Action - - CONTENTS - By Joel Navarro

Axialfest is the big­gest crawler/scale trail­ing event in

the world, a mecca for 4X4 fans and ex­clu­sively de­voted to driv­ers with Ax­ial rigs. Held at the Cisco Grove Camp­ground in Cal­i­for­nia’s Ta­hoe Na­tional For­est, Ax­ial once again put on an awe­some event. The trail-build­ing game was strong with the crew this year, build­ing nine cour­ses with 150 gates each— that’s 1,350 to­tal gates! The days were packed with rock­rac­ing and trail-run­ning fun that went strong af­ter sun­set and well into the night. This was my se­cond Axialfest and I was thrilled to ex­pe­ri­ence this one-of-a-kind event again. Here’s how it went down.

The Al­tra-spon­sored 5K En­duro got started on Fri­day morn­ing. Charged bat­ter­ies and stretch­ing were def­i­nitely rec­om­mended be­fore the start. Nice scenery could be very de­ceiv­ing. Chal­leng­ing ter­rain of­ten caused traf­fic back­ups on the trails wher­ever driv­ers couldn’t quite con­quer that one ob­sta­cle. 51
