Default another round of name that car!

Have had this one for 8 or 9 years, not sure how long it was around before that. I am pretty sharp on the vintage off-road, but know nothing about on. I am fairly certain it is graphite, I am not for sure if the shock is original to me it looks like a losi. The front beam almost looks to me to be magnesium, but may just be aluminum. Any help appreciated.

i can't wait to hear what comes up for this. when i see these things it really reminds me of my youth, and names like parma, bolink, ayk...old trinity pans. there were so many because they were so easy to make and tune.

I was about to put in the heading that the chassis looked like the composite craft graphite (a least it looked to be the same style of graphite as the off-road composite craft chassis I have did). Thanks again for the help, hopefully I can return the favor for you guys someday.

I had one of those back in the day, and I could run away from the Associated 10L and all the others, race after race. Awesome car. I'll bet it would still do well today!

Indeed it was. I believe Terry Rott also drove one if memory serves me right.

I loved that car... definately one car I regret selling. The Lynx II was way ahead of it's time, for a pan car, I know they're pretty simple but it was cutting edge for circa 1990.

I might have a narrow LTO version of this car with a split front beam. This car really shined on a bumpy track, the pod floats vertically and uses the sway bar for tweak.

Great car, though it's missing the original shock and mount.

I ran a narrow one on carpet oval for a while with a split beam, adjustable camber front end (think it was a TRC front) and a Trinity shock.
