    Traxxas Nitro Hawk

    I havent seen any vintage Traxxas on here yet so I thought I'd post mine. This hawk was in bad shape when I got it a couple of years ago. But after a little work, here it is....

    RE: Traxxas Nitro Hawk

    Are you going to keep the Image engines or are you going to upgrade it to a trx .12 or .15? I had the image in a different nitro hawk years ago back in 1993 or 4 when it first came out, and it was a terrible engine. It could have been because it was my first nitro. I just remember it sitting a lot moe than driving it.

    That Hawk is nice. A cool white one too.

    Those Image engines were indeed cursed. Few running examples of them remain. Most owners went to other engines, and the Image was thown away.
    Carry the fire. There\'\'ll be another time.

    RE: Traxxas Nitro Hawk

    Yes, the Image .12 was a horrible engine, but I just like them for some reason. Sentimental I guess. Here is one I just bought, new in box. Even comes with a packaged incredibly rare Traxxas (not MIP) stinger, which is not installed because it requires drilling the rear bumper. Its the last model released, with the steel clutch bell, pro .15, and updated electronics. I do have several others, including a pair of white plastic Nitro hawks, a Restored nitro street, and a beat to hell nitro buggy I pretty much just use to chase cats.

    RE: Traxxas Nitro Hawk

    hey lifeandhowtoliveit, is that a MIP rear exhaust on there ?
    I put one on a old rc10gt and it really brought that engine to life. (seemed to me anyway)
