mass spam of goliath sounds like fail to me, protect them with reapers, for more hp/per cost. Then goliaths can just take advantage of the superior range.
But building pitbulls/vipers are a good counter at first. But if you want mobile units... It depends on the terrain and army size whether I'd prefer panther or bulldog, if they come tightly packed then the aoe of bulldog is useful (and mix the bulldog with stumpys). From other labs I would just pick reaper/zeus/can (and mix them with stumpies too if possible).
feh. I would say dont go t2, be better than enemy at stumpy management and spam. Otherwise, what about building up hoards of bulldogs and pwning shit with them? their AOE means that if you have enough of em and dont let the stumpies engulf you, they will decimate the tightly packed stoompahs.
I would stick to T1 tho, Imo spamming T1 tanks with T2 eco is where winnage is made.
First flashes are not t2, and second, do flashes really beat stumpies?
I think they'll just get slaughtered, not being able to fire over wrecks and each other...
small numbers of flash beat small numbers of stumpy big numbers of stumpy beat big numbers of flash (maybe not if the flash player has ungodly micro on them) big numbers of mixed stumpy and flash beat big numbers of stumpy (at least if you have decent micro)
Imo spamming T1 tanks with T2 eco is where winnage is made
Then what is the point of having t2 units?
for when the enemy is also spamming t1 with a t2 eco? Honestly, above a certain size of stumpy hoard, the more concentrated firepower and bigger splash of T2 tanks just means they are better worth it. This point is not when you tech up though, it comes later, when you have proper eco and enemy does too.
fuck, i havent played in a long time, so this may all be hogwash

tbh the t2 counter to mass stumpys is to make a few t2 cons, upgrade your mex to moho than knock up a fuckload of nanos around your t1 lab and make more stumpys. if you want to get fancy:
put in some reapers at the front to absorb damage. some gollys in to do the aoe,
a skuttle if you reckon you can catch a good number in the blast (ie, tightpacked going up a ramp)
a wall of cans will do well if they charge it but tbh cant move, stumpys better
mavericks have mean dps...
it basicly comes down to: t2 units are utility units, mixing them in with t1 improves a t1 horde in various ways. however, pure of almost any t2 unit fails liek baby compared to stumpy because stumpy is don

T2 is not purely better than t1. T2 units concentrate power to a smaller area and should be used when t1 becomes inefficient due to chokepoints and/or porc. If there is loads of room, use t1. Basically.
