Looks like a CK3.1 or 3.2, if your looking for an online site try Ashfordhttp://www.ashfordhobby.com/, Robert is great and he carries alot of 1/12 parts. But to be honest if you have a BMI I would'nt spend much on rebuilding that CRC, the BMI car is a much better car to start with; imo anyway.

older than that. it doesn't even have lowered pod plates. looks like v3.1 red edition.

the good thing is that all the parts from all the v3.- cars are interchangeable. just can't use gen-x parts. you could basically run it as is and upgrade it as you go and then you'd have a 3.2R with the thick ABP chassis, lowered plates, etc. and it would be as good as anything out right now.

The Gen X front end will fit the 3.x cars. I have one installed on my 3.2 without any modifications, and another member of our club (IROCC) has a 3.2 with a GenX rear pod.

you're right, the front end is a direct fit. i was referring more to graphite and chassis parts, but was not specific. the front end is a good upgrade not only becasue of the adjustability, but also because it allows more ride height and you get more running out of your front tires.

i'd like to see a pic of how they got the X pod on a v3 car because there is no way that should work without some serious modifications.
