PostSubject: New Brite F-350/Traxxas Hawk Hybrid   Tue Oct 28, 2008 9:34 am

This was another of those man I'm bored builds that turned out to be on fun little truck.

I took a New Brite F-350 I got at a flea Mkt. for the tires, and a old traxxas Hawk I had laying around and made a 1/18 scale out of it.

I wanted to try to make it look as much like the F-350 as I could. Making it as much a sleeper as I could.

Well first I had to butcher this Vintage Traxxas Hawk hehehehehehehe the vintage guys will kringe when thay see the great shape the doner was in lmao



Heres how it came out




It was a fun little truck, would haul great wheelies, handled pretty good, and was very quick.
It would keep up with a budies mini-t no problem lol





Well as allways my painting came into play as it wasnt flashy enough for me.





And here it is sitting next to my old HPI Nitro Rush for size comparison,





Was a fun little truck and a really fun project.
SOLD on ebay for $55.00 as a roller Very Happy

It was a really fun truck, it actually handled like a dream with the almost bald tires in the dirt.
I had tries a set of Pro Line Dirt Hawgs on it and it had too much traction in the dirt and pushed the front.
With the bald cross pins on it, it would kick out the rear more and make cornering in the dirt much more handleable(if thats a word lol)
Was a fun little project and look forward to building another project in the near future.
