Check out this awesome Traxxas Hawk Ad from the 90s. Before there was a Slash or E-Maxx, there was the Hawk! Back then all Traxxas RC cars and trucks came with white plastic so everything on the car could be dyed any color you’d like. Considering this was the 90s it wasn’t unusual to see these cars dyed bright green or even bright pink! What is really interesting about the advertisement is that Traxxas specifically mentions one of it’s competitors, the Tamiya Blackfoot. In reality the Blackfoot was more of a monster truck of sorts while the Hawk was more of a stadium truck. Either way it shows that Traxxas was taking aim at one of the most popular RC trucks of the time. Also, while the ad showcases the Hawk’s features it was actually Traxxas’s low buck model. The Eagle was their high end racer.
