Default Help identifying a pan car

Hey everybody,

I'm about to pick up 2 cars in a trade. One is a bolink digger and one is a pan car that I'm trying to identify. I thought it was a bolink eliminator but the servo mount and white battery box is throwing me. Anybody have any ideas?

It certainly resembles a Bolink Eliminator, and looks like it uses some of the parts like the rear pod bulkheads and the T-plate support (which Bolink called the "radio tray") and the shock mount. The front axle plate has the same general shape as the Eliminator's, but lacks the lightening holes. Also, the whole car is narrow, while the Eliminator was 235mm wide.

I'd say it was a homebuilt based loosely on the Eliminator. The construction looks pretty good!

Yeah I'm thinking its bolink based as well since the bodies have some bolink stickers on them will see how it runs when I get them.

Is it a BoLink "Round Tracker" (pre-Eliminator)? Dirt pan car?

Looked up some pics of those kinda looks like that. The steering servo is what is confusing me on every other bolink car I have seen it was before the front tires where as this one is in front of them

The car is a Bolink spec car. TRC and Trinity also made one. It was designed to run the spec motors and 6 cell spec packs. Rc10 battery cups were added. It was a fun class that never really took off. I've got one in the attic along with the Trc. The Trc was a better design as it used the front suspension off of an Associated 12L.
