The JConcepts design team has spent many hours in development with Ryan Maifield to develop a hot, new style body, specifically for the TLR 22 2.0 vehicle. The Finnisher for the 22 is a completely tightened design, slimming the overall look of the popular vehicle. JConcepts knows 1/10 offroad, and coming off the recent success of the Finnisher bodies, the designers adapted elements from the current fleet to create the ultimate high-grip, mid-motor body design.

The last round of Greek 1/8 Buggy Championship took place in Athens at Zorri Track. The weather was sunny and hot, and the track very difficult. Tasos came from North of Greece to compete against the local drivers who raced at the same track 1 weekend ago. He started with a great pace and took the win in the first qualifier, and would take TQ.
In the Final, Tasos started out front with locals Makropoulos, Tsigkos and Perogianakis behind him pushing hard. A small stone lodged in between his chassis and front arm of Tasos car, dropping him back 11 seconds out of first. With only a short time to go, the stone fell out, allowing the car to once again work properly. Tasos then charged his way back to the front, taking an impressive win over Zagorisos and Makropoulos.
