The Dyna-Hawk GX (Japanese: ダイナホーク GX, Dainahōku Jī Ekkusu) is a Mighty Mini 4WD car released by Tamiya in May 1998. It was the first Mini 4WD car released in the lineup.

It was featured in the manga New Generation Racer Mini 4 Kids as Kakeru Takagami's machine.

General info

The Dyna-Hawk features the low-height, open-wheel body design, with the sharp front canopy and the bulged rear fenders. A pair of fins were protruded from the side of the canopy. There's also the air-intakes on the bodyshells that can dissipate the heats from the motor.

It also comes with the plastic front nose guard, which is attached onto the chassis's front bumper. However, it cannot be attached to Super XX Chassis if the chassis's default front nose guard is installed.

All variants were equipped with the large diameter, 3-spoke X Mighty-type wheels paired with arched tires.

Dyna-Hawk and Super XX Special

Both the original model and the Super XX variant has the white bodyshell, with blue/yellow highlight and orange/red flame-styled decals.

The original Dyna-Hawk was equipped with yellow wheels and black tires, while the Super XX Special was equipped with carbon-mixed nylon wheels and yellow tires. The Super XX Special was also equipped with the reinforced chassis molded in red. Only the Super XX Special comes with a standard motor.

Black Special

The Black Special has the black base color, with blue canopy, orange/red flame-styled decals and yellow highlights.

It was equipped with carbon-mixed nylon wheels and red tires. It was also equipped with the reinforced chassis molded in red.
