JConcepts B4.1 Punisher

Seen back in August the Punisher body by JConcepts for the B4.1 is now available. Debuted at the 2010 ROAR Off-Road Nationals, the radical new body stares you down like a trained fighter. The slight cab-forward treatment is amongst the most aggressive in class giving the Punisher top notch performance. Blended wing / body design gives additional down-force to the side-pods and windshield which increases drive-ability, corner speed and jump control.

In addition to the newly designed body JConcepts has included 2 of the popular 6.5″ wide high downforce V-wings that are commonly used around the world.

Diatta is now using GQ Tires on his Nitro and Electric cars.

I’m very happy to have GQ Tires and TMA Motorsports as my tire sponsor for the 2010-2011 racing season. After first trying them in the same shores I used to run from other brands on my nitro car, I felt an increase in traction and consistency. On top of that, the wear on my tires was minimal. I know we will be seeing some great results in the near future.
