    Noticed I have nitro style yokes. Upgraded the ring on the planetary gear to steel swapped out rear shocks and set the suspension up for the asphalt. Installed trx toe links up front and laid out skid plate
    brace.

    Awesome,another Hawk2 fan on the forum!!! I was starting to feel kinda lonely,lol.

    Mrmerv76,Welcome to the vintage electric forum. I'm probably the biggest Hawk2 fan around here and I can hardly wait to hear how your project is going.

    Yup I'm here for ya bro. I've noticed it's basically a rustler but a few details are different that are better IMO. Will add rpm arms to the front and replace servo when it goes and trx caster blocks n front carriers. I love telling people they just got smoked by an 18yr old model. Well chassis.

    Cool!!

    I forgot to mention this earlier, in case you didn't know, that Stampede body mounts fit the Hawk2 perfectly.


    Most of the guys that have seen my Hawk2 in person thought it was a modified Stampede, until they saw the chassis. Then they had no clue what it was.

    But I went a slightly different route with mine. Larger tires,Stampede shocks,body mounts and Diff. kit. Everything else, other than the radio gear and electronics is factory stock Traxxas Hawk2 parts. So it looks more or less like a stock Hawk2 with Sledgehammer tires on it.

    I've been bashing the stuffing out of my Hawk2 since the summer of 2006 and I have a riot every time I run it.
