    We will start off with the rules :

    For starters, this thread is for strictly for pictures and videos of your Vintage Traxxas Nitro. If you have a question about someone's vehicle, upgrades, etc please send them a personal message.

    Secondly, The maximum picture size IS 640x480. If they're larger, they will be removed.

    This isn't my original Nitro Hawk I had in '93, but it's one I recently built out of two I snagged off Ebay. It had an original TRX12 in it but I swapped my old Pro15 from the Nitro Rustler in. It still needs some Lunsfords, new fuel tubing, a body, and a decent steering servo. (and rear tires, among other little things) Would really like to find a cooling head that better matches the shock bodies or MIP 360 too.

    Heres a few pics of my Hawk. Ive had it for over four years and am just discovering the fun! except i have been having a little tuning problem, but i dont really know how old the motor is so soon it will be time to just replace it. right now i have taken the engine apart and everything seemed ok, well see. maybe like i said its time for a motor. i really like the disc brake setup but it looks like a lot of work. i read somewhere about putting a piece of leather on the OEM brake shoe, so i tried that. ill let you know how it works. it looks like it will be good. there really is quite a few hawks still around. nice to see that. well more pictures to come later.

    hi folks

    just thought i'd share my hawk, back up and running well

    not many spares or hops around these days which is a shame...

    we dont stop playing because we grow old, we grow old when we stop playing.

    MY Nitro Hawk. Picked it up 100% original with original body from someone who hardly used it -Original TRX .12 engine. I added associated 2-stage filter, Prolines all around, and a Proline body to dress it up. Pretty much a shelf queen now - with an occasional spin around the yard.
