Default Academy's 4WD Legend Off-Buggy MERCURY will come back (RUMOR)

We just heard rumor that Academy's legend kit 4WD Off Buggy MERCURY might come back with new re-designed great race machine.

4WD buggy MERCURY was IFMAR 1/10 Electric World Champion in 1985.

We will update more about this kit later.

* The kit image is not a new product image
* This might be just rumor

Yeah sure

Firstly, the Mercury has never won a world championship (the 85 worlds was won by Gil Losi Jnr driving a modified Yokomo YZ834b Dogfighter).

Secondly, the original Mercury was manufactured by Mugen, and wasn't released until late 1987.

The Academy version is simply a re-badged knock-off, not the original.

There was one on ebay a couple of days ago.

I wouldn't call it legendary either, they were bloody awful cars (I know, i had one )
