I'm interested in seeing imaging results of people using one of the new AT6RC scopes along with a CG5. Do you drift align the mount with this setup?

No 6RC, but the slick new polar align routine in the hand controller precludes the necesity of drift alignment. Considering AP done with longer and heavier OTAs on this mount, it should work very well with the 6 and even the 8RC.
