Default Marching Orders: Bring me a GV2-T!!!

With the GV2 looking like a winner right now, can we expect Academy to throw its hat into the ring with a Truck version? You got pretty good truck tires too, fusions type to name one, would be nice to wrap them around a 2wd GV2-T.

Seperate thing but still MRC related, you guys see that build up of a really trick Thunder King? This guy basically redid the whole thing on Xtreme forum. Really awesome looking. I would love to see a redone one of those things.

With the brushless setups and lipos nowadays, I think those vehicles could make a strong comeback. Would be really cool if they decided to bring them back. Be the first with a production brushless / lipo 1/8 scale truggy, specifically made for electric racing.

For the truck GV2T assuming its made, I hope they go with a quick change axle setup.

My first hobby grade car was an MRC MT10S. I loved that thing and it took a ton of abuse. When any of you gets ready to sell one of their new 2wd buggies, let me know, I have been wanting to try one out.

Sign me up for a pre-order on a GV2T with quick change and interchangeable front/rear wheels!!

I'd dump all of my Losi stuff for that in a heartbeat.
