Since this seems to be the most popular nitro hawk thread, just wanted to say that I've got my second Nitro Hawk up in the for sale section if anyone wants a restoration project.

It has a .12 Traxxas engine. I havent ran the engine myself, and was told its been about a year since its been run. The engine has plenty of compression, and pull starter doesnt slip. The truck is stock expect for the front wheel bearings. This will also come with a NIP stampede linkages that you can modify and use for this truck. Will also come with an Ofna radio and reciever and two new futaba standard servos. The body is new. Truck is pretty clean and not bad at all for bring 15 years old. Asking $140 or best offer...and open for trades.

Momo - did you ever sell this? I saw it on ebay a couple of weeks ago.

Also - are there any modern engines (ones you can still buy) that will fit in the Nitro Hawk other than the TRX .15? I imagine the biggest challenge is finding one with a long enough crank, but do the stock engine mounts and exhaust work with something, like an O.S.? I'd like to replace the tired TRX 12 I have, but want something that's still made. TRX 15s with a long crank are tough to get ahold of.

Yeah, I got a Nitro Hawk for Christmas in 1993 or 1994. 14 years later, a Savage XL is under the tree...nitro RTR trucks have come a long way!
