First one looks like a Bolink and the second one IS a Composite Craft LynxII.
Hope that helps.

First one is a bolink of some variant. the second is my favorite 1/10 scale...A TRC Lynx II. Great Car, won a bunch of races at the old USA Speedway outside of Phx with mine.

The Lynx II is from 1990 - 1991 time frame. Good luck finding original parts. You might be able to cobble stuff together from Associated old school front end parts, and DuBro or Lunsford for the turnbuckles. The graphite chassis parts would need to be handmade out of CF or fiberglass. You could always make 100% size photocopies or scans and use that as a template.

The first one is definitely a bolink, but what exact model I dont know. A different variation of that chassis was my first car handed down to me about 10-12 years ago. I had to piece alot of it together the same way carbon joe suggested, a hodge-podge of parts from other companies and some dubro hardware.

Although, with the rebirth of bolink as rjspeed, you may get lucky and have direct fit parts for some of the new kits fit yours.

That first one is a Bolink Super Sport. I had that car in the wide 235 mm version with the Days of Thunder Lumina body.

That sway bar on the Lynx was a direct copy from my old 12L's!!! Hohoo--right out of the 90's!! I stopped racing after the Nat's at Phil and Jim's in Riverside!! I've got THAT 1/12 scale car sitting up on my bench right now--WITH the complete equipment from the day. Red nicads--Novak Esc--Reedy modified--
Old School!!

No...it is the Eliminator 10. The Super Sport did not use 2 shocks in the back. As I recall it didn't come with any shocks. The Eliminator 10 used 2 shocks on the rear but most people changed that to using only 1 shock with a sway bar.

I think/know you are correct on that one.

My first on-road car was a Bolink Eliminator 10. That car was super rugged.

The first is a Bolink and one of the better versions as it uses the two shocks on the rear pod. The second is a TRC Composite Craft Lynx Elite II. I had three of the Lynx pan cars, one an oval version. Very nice old pan cars.

I had one of those eliminators. Only used it for carpark bashing, and it was a missile. Looooong before the days I started racing, so didn't know what I had until I sold it.
