Default Name the Redcat 1/5 Scale Vehicles

As many of you know we have thrown around lots of names. Many have come up with some good ones.

We are putting this contest out there for everyone to join.

Pick a name for the Redcat new 1/5 scale models and have some fun. If a new name is chosen as the name for the 1/5 model we will give the winner a $100 shopping spree from Redcat.

Some basic stuff:

I would prefer the name be one name for both models such as Landslide XT5 and Landslide XB5 (X = means nothing just a sexy letter) ( B or T = Buggy or Truck) (5 = 5th scale)
The name should but does not have to go with the flow of our storms and natural disasters. I am ready for a change if enough people vote and agree

Lets get a bunch of name entries, just post them in this thread. If multiple same name entries, first one in gets credit for it.

I may throw some in as well.

Have fun, keep it clean.

The 2 names I have throw around:
Landslide
Earthquake (Yes we used to have one but dont anymore, it would be the Earthquake XT5 or XB5

Stickied. How about...

Fury
Vengeance
Thunderbolt
Sandstorm (good one for the buggy)

And suffixes...

MT5 (M=Monster, T=nothing. lol. 5=1/5)
TT5 (TT=Trophy Truck, I guess you could use that for a buggy or a truggy)
STX

I particularly like 'Sandstorm STX', and 'Thunderbolt STX'. Whaddaya think?

PS. As a moderator, of course I am not eligible to win prizes, so if either of my names are selected, I will be donating my prize to another member, perhaps with a competition of my own!

Well I really don't mind a bunch of names.

After we decide to finish up with the name choices, I will throw them into a big list and have everyone pick their top 3 choices. When we narrow it down, maybe we can do a survey at that point.

We are only naming the 1/5 scale vehicles and either one name for both with a different suffix or if we can come up with 2 really good names that is fine too.

By the way Typhoon is already used. See image. Coming end of April.

For the record, I like ldgasp's idea of "Eruption"! I can see the promo video now, with Eddie Van Halen banging out Eruption in the background! cool! [8D]

Hhhhmn... sticking with a "big" theme...

Colossal XT/XB

Titan XT/XB

Extreme XT/XB

Mammoth XT/XB

Extreme XT/XB

I'd go with "BFB & BFT" as letters, but then people would ask and you'd have to tell them what the BF stands for!
