When Nitro #4 was built it was nicknamed the “Budget Nitro” compared to its other stablemates, however it was a name soon blown out of the water with its impressive performances making it arguably the 2nd most successful truck from Nitro Customs.
With Neville Mather & Richard Verner making a return to the sport having last competed in E Class with a Suzuki Vitara, they finished 3rd Outright in their debut season in 2019! They followed it up with their first win in 2020 as well as taking out the Suzuki Extreme 4×4 Challenge in 2021. 2022 saw them take two wins on their way for 4th Overall that season, before bringing the fight to Sam Thomsen & Mitch Caldow in 2023!
