Matt Sistrunk takes all at I-20 series Rd1

Last weekend was the first round of the I-20 series in Monroe, Louisiana. Racers from all over the area came to a freshly built track at Full Throttle Raceway. With the rain during the week the Track crew had some work ahead of them. By the time qualifiers started the track was in great shape. The Battle for TQ was close but TLR driver Matt “Puddin” Sistrunk took the top spot in buggy followed closely by TLR privateer Denver Houghton. Following the start of the main it was a three car battle with Denver taking the early lead followed by Matt and Allen McCoy. Matt and Denver battled for the lead the entire race with Allen in the shadows waiting for them to mess up. Matt passed Denver on the last lap of the race and they crossed the line .05 apart with Matt taking the win, Denver in 2nd and HB driver Allen McCoy in 3rd. In Truggy Matt started 3rd with Steve Traxler taking TQ. Matt took the lead in early going and never looked back, winning from the HB pairing of Jeff Gray in 2nd and Steve Traxler in 3rd.

JConcepts TLR 22 Punisher body

JConcepts TLR 22 Punisher body

The Punisher body by JConcepts for the TLR 22 is the meanest, nastiest thing out for 1/10th buggy racing. 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 driveability, corner speed and jump control. The rear base of the cab area represents the latest offering for 1/10th buggy racing featuring a rear scoop allowing additional tune-ability and cooling for high-performance racing. The Punisher body includes both cut-lines so the user can trim to either rear or mid motor chassis configurations. In addition to the newly designed body JConcepts has included 2 of the popular 6.5″ wide high down force V-wings that are commonly used around the world.
