Default Need help identifying 1/12 pan car

Picked up this car for a price that was too good to pass up, looks like an older CRC but doesn't look like a Gen X from the pictures I've seen. Definitely not a t-bar car, but the rear suspension reminds me of a 12L. Anyone know what it is? I want to see if I can get a brushless pod for it and the missing rear shock. I would love it if someone knew where I could get that stuff too, but at least knowing what I have would be a good start

It's a CRC carpet knife. There were several versions, but it looks like a hybrid car. The top rear piece of carbon is from another car which is obvious because of the different weave material compared to the other parts. Back in the day, it was pretty common to make or change parts. That is what appears to have happened to your car.

Thanks! Now the hunt for parts begins... Would probably be cheaper to buy a whole newer car but where's the fun in that?

Wasn't the CRC originally a conversion for the 12L? If so that would explain why it looks like a hybrid of the 2.

Are we sure that top pod plate is off the 12L though? The one I have has a different shape to it.
