New for 2023 The Punisher is one the latest Nitro Custom frames to join the field. Having started out as a bare frame from the shop, Chris has put the pieces together to build himself a buggy that looks like its just come off the showroom floor!
Featuring all the goodies from Tomalin Lockers & Hubs, Nitro Chromoly Housings as well as a worked L98 featuring Haltech engine management, The Punisher is one to look out for!
