    Welcome

    I haven't done a G6 Endurance event but I imagine you will need a enough batteries so you can last the 6 hr I believe it is. Plenty to drink, food, some spare parts/tools so that you can trail fix if something minor breaks. Bring what you would if you were hiking for 6 hrs even though you will be chasing a toy truck.

    Endurance Class (5 driver minimum) - This class is a 6 hour scale adventure that will push drivers and their equipment to new levels. The FIX 12 Hour Endurance Event takes place once a year and is the proving grounds for the products that you use on your scale adventure rig. Endurance Driving is next level driving. If you wish to push your limits, test your skills, or just are looking for the next level of scale adventure, look no further than the new RECON G6 Endurance Class. Endurance Class Drivers Must start at the 9am start time. A combination of laps completed & time bonuses will determine the Endurance Class Driver of the Day.

    Looks like it is a lap event, the person with the most laps (and best time for that number laps)
    I would bring spare driveshafts, an assortment of screws, shock parts, rod ends, any misc pieces that "may" break, sounds like your axles are pretty bulletproof so that is good.
    As for batteries, there are many different variables in people's trucks, how you drive, weight of truck, etc. I would think maybe 3? but since this is a lap event and the pit area has electric, bring a power strip and your charger, you can always top a battery or two off during laps. You can take short (or long) breaks between laps also.

    Not sure about the beer limit, but 3s, 4s, etc is fine. Just remember you have to follow the truck, so if you can run for 6 hrs, then run 6S
