    Talking 20 Year Old Nitro Hawk Restore Project!!!

    I just finished restoring my Nitro Hawk, that i got for my birthday in 1992... Im still going, got a few more to restore, ive been on a roll lately with the traxxas vintages... I did a Power Up Upgrade and sent in my original trx .12 and got a pro .15, rebuilt shocks, gave it a parts bath, 50% new screws & bolts, AND THE most important found the original decals and an Original Nitro Hawk Body reproduction on ebay took me awhile to get everything but it was all worth it!!! i tried my best matching the original body on the box it came in... LOL I also painted a Nitro Sport Body for bashing the Nitro Hawk Body strictly for SHOW...
