From what I see, it is a trc/composite craft lynx that has been modified with delta shocks. What confuses me is the associated front end. Usually Trc used the delta beam front end.

I raced 1/10 pan car during it's inception and those cars did not handle at all.It was a blessing when the 10l first came out from associated.

this car could also be a bolink car, but I dont recall a link rear end from the boys in Ga.

LOL, those weren't supposed to be in the picture! Yeah, I'm also restoring my ole JRX-2 Shelf queen.

Thanks for all the help guys. I figured it was some sort of Frankenstein-hybrid car....

I believe it is a Lucas Agitator. I think it was built in '89 or '90.
Barry Baker might know for sure.
I think he might have raced for him, in the day.

Yep, Agitator. I always wanted one of those back in the day. I had a Vicfor car at the time.

Ooops, well I guess it is a Frankenstein since it has the AE front end on it. It came with a plate style front end.

I am pretty sure that is not an Agitator.

That looks like an old Composite Craft prototype car from way back in the day when we ran 1200 milliamp sanyos. OMG im getting old!

Damn, now that I think about it, Rick is right. The Agitator had a three shock set up. I know this isn't a prototype though, I raced against several of these back in the day.

Maybe a precursor to the Lynx? Similar link set-up to the Lynx but different shock set up. Some sort of composite craft car.

Your right I went back and looked at the photo closer, definately not a Lucas.
I think it is more likely a Baby Lynx from Composite Craft. I didn't think those cars ever went into full production. Someone did change the front end as it most likely used a beam originally.
