Tiny Hawk?

Post by clm »

This is sort of a branch off from the Mini Jrx2 thread. Jeff pointed me to some Traxxas Hawk cad files and being as the hawk was my first performance RC I have been considering making a mini version of it as I have been designing all these parts for the Mini Jrx2. I printed off a test chassis but when I lowered the quality for a test print I messed up the raft adhesion so the bottom looks horrid lol

I don't know where this is going to go but it is fun to think about. :)

Awesome project! I am curious where you found the Hawk CAD model.

I picked up a pair of Mini-b's for my son and I to get him into the hobby ,which I am just now getting back into after years away. The 1/16 scale can make repair and maintenance challenging, they are blast and relative inexpensive entry level into buggy racing.

A suitable and available transmission for your 1/16 Hawk would be the transmission from the 1/16 E-Revo / Slash / Rally 4WD. They are the same scale and can be picked up on eBay for cheap (Traxxas part# 7095). If you could fabricate a custom mount plate to flip the motor around so it is tucked in beside the transmission it would make a decent 2wd buggy trans.

Jeff pointed me to them in the mini jrx2 thread, I have been poking at them on and off while working on losi and associated parts, recently I adjusted the holes on the chassis to be compatible with the screws I used on the mini rc10. If you want access to the shrunken files I can share the tinkercad file with you.

I have a merv transmission I picked up for testing when I was trying to figure out how to stuff something in a vaguely rc10ish transmission, and while it will require adjustments to the trans case I think using Traxxas gears in a Traxxas replica is almost poetic. I mocked up the basic fitment tonight. There is plenty of room in this case at the diff area, I could almost stuff a small 1/10 guts in it heh.

I also finished editing the hole sizing on the chassis to use the screw sizes I am using on the mini RC10, although I am somewhat annoyed the chassis model has a clipped tail, if I can get accurate measurements I will definitely fix that. The chassis will fit on a ender 3 bed at 45 degree rotation easy enough.

If you want to poke at the chassis it's here.

Stupid secret files are not working on cults, had to make the chassis public for the stupid link to work :p
