Dakotah Phend teams up with Picco?

The 2018 Dirt Nitro Challenge just started with some surprises in store. The first is to the credit of TLR’s Dakotah Phend. Dakotah unveiled two photos of his 8ight 4.0 with a Picco engine instead of a Reds engine. The change is quite unexpected, Dakotah still using a Reds engine at the “One Race One Man” in early January in Padova, Italy. Another interesting point is that Dakotah seems to use (or at least for his photos) an 8ight 4.0 stock. In recent times it was impossible to photograph his buggy because of prototype parts being tested to determine a final configuration for the next TLR 1/8 buggy that will be released this year.
