Default Unknow Pan Car (ID Help Needed) Better pics this time

I just got this in a large lot of stuff I got off eBay. Original Ideas were TRC, Corally, AE, but I couldn't find anything similar using google images. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Like someone said in the other thread...it's a Composite Craft Predator but using the AE front end instead of the stock one.

Scroll down a bit and you'll see one like yours.

That is a TRC Lynx. The TRC had an 3/8" aluminum cross bar with upright kingpins in front which have been replaced by the Associated Old Skool front end.

C/C Predator. Though I don't remember the front end being Associated. ???


Edit: InspGadgt's got it correct!

The Lynx used a completely different rear end which had a single shock and damper disks mounted to a cantilever lower arm with 2 links on the top.

Here is a link to the Composite Craft people on facebook (Facebook=yuk) but so you can see what you have. Scroll down to the post about the cars, midpage or so. You will see the stock versions. You need to understand that back in the old days, everyone had and used their Dremels all the time. To take off the flat beam front end and put a associated front end was common and only took 30 minutes or so to do. This was a Hobby after all, and building your own cars from scratch was fairly common too. My brother and I made several of our own cars.

Your pic is a Lynx II, I had both and loved them on asphalt they were glued to the track. The 1st post may be a composite craft, but sure is awful similar to the original lynx just with the links closer together. My first Lynx had the link out wide and the rear pod floated as close to a vertical path as you could get no dampener disc at all

Well given TRC eventually took over Composite Craft I wouldn't be surprised if there was some cross over there in the cars.
