    I would expect it to have a top speed around 40mph (if it has a 2.72 tranny ratio). That is, of course, on-road, in near perfect conditions, and with a gearing of 20/70 (I'm not sure which gearing you are using or what gearing comes stock).
    I love the smell of nitro fumes in the morning!

    I would tend to agree here with Tazz. I have no knowledge of the transmission set-up of the Hawk though. 40 mph sounds a bit high for everyday use, but like he said this will be in near perfect conditions.

    Hope this helps,

    Stan.

    i have seen a 36 mph top speed from my rusty i had it clockedon radar from a police officer last year.now to me i think thats pretty fast.you might be able to get faster top speeds with a good spur gear setup and clutch bell also.

    Hi,

    Yes, the gearing and space available will be able to make it go faster. If you gear it high, then the acceleration will be sluggish but the top speed will be great.

    Hope this helps,

    Stan.

    Tazz is correct, the Nitro Hawk tranny is a 2.72:1. The stock gearing on the Nitro Hawk is 20/66. The motor mount bolt holes in the chassis are not slotted to accommodate any other gear ratio, but can be slotted to do so. The Nitro Hawk is pretty fast! The top speed is close to 40mph with a healthy Pro .15.
