I think they should have named it Thumper, and here are my reasons why....
1. It shoots out magnet bombs as a special that bouce all over the arena like the ricocette.
2. Seconary special magnet attaches the enemy vehicle to it's bumper. And that rymes with Thumper.
3. The car is somewhat similar to the old Thumper accept for the special.
4. It pays tribute to the name Thumper as it was one of the first cars in the series.
5. Roadboat sounds a little too much like roadkill, except not as cool.
So who agrees with me here? And TM developer's your just not trying anymore.
roadboat is a crap name but its stuck, the names broken in
