I bought and built a Hawk-II well over a decade ago (before I had a driver's license ). Today, the goal is to turn this old basher into a race-ready LS-II!
9/21/2008 Blue Eagle! - It's a franken-car. This was goal #1: invest minimal money to get it moving again. Unfortunately, the tranny went..
Amusing aside: front tires were purchased circa 1995. Rear tires purchased circa 3 weeks ago
10/3/2008 Parts Donor - Thanks to Harry697, I got a start with some LS-II parts. Some bits migrate from the once mighty Hawk.
10/3/2008 Look Ma, No Turnbuckles! - This LS-II needs quite a few parts still. I go off to scour the net.
10/8/2008 Bellcranks - Here's a shiny new steering set I got my mitts on.
10/9/2008 Battery Box Bearings - Once I got in a fancy metric RCscrewz set, I installed the battery box. Also threw in some Traxxas blue rubber ball bearings.
As of today, I'm waiting on these parts to arrive and/or install:
- MIP CVDs
- Rustler VXL tranny w/slipper
- New Servo
Then, I should have all the parts I need. Won't be long now till I can hit the road!
