My bad, but...

The Porsche 934 RSR Turbo kit that Tamiya claims is a TA05, sort of -ish really, has the Evo 5 arms.

I opened the boxes of my R and IFS for the first time today to check the arms (both Evo IV type as you said), and the IFS manual.

Guess what! My IFS manual is the same as yours, and my kit came from Japan. Page 18 details the #53499 axle as the one to use The download manual from Tamiya Japan must be a corrected version. Pity they can't be big enough to step up and say so. I mean anyone who has the kit is not going to bother with a PDF version of the manual when they have got the (supposed) real deal in their hands. I grabbed the PDF version because I'm, well you know, like that

The 05R has the #51094 axles in the box.

Really... I picked my kit up in Toronto, I never order chassis kits online for just this reason?

Anyway, Welcome to the club , I don't feel singled out anymore.

Well, at least you knew enough to be able to recognize the right part before ordering it. I've paid for the wrong part based on the Tamiya Manual that came in a sealed Tamiya box and now it looks like I'll be putting more money out to fix an error that should not have happened in the first place

Sure hope Tamiya views it's self as one large family, it shouldn't matter where the kit came from, a product error is a product error. (I thought all kits were improted anyway? Kits are made in North America?)

Look Out Tamiya here come Xray

From what I understand, the shorter arms are just suppose to help the suspension to react a little better due to less unsprung weight. As the owner of our LHS always says, if you're racing for money every little bit counts otherwise it probably isn't really worth the additional money.

I've converted my 05R over to the IFS. I race mine in sportsman stock. Honestly I can't tell the difference, it drives the same to me.

Since the overall suspension component lengths are the same when compared to a regular TA05, the handling difference should be minimal. If you go and talk to a lot of guys who have switched over, they have all said it will still handle just like a TA05.

Do you have a scan of the manual that tells you the wrong part number? Everything we have and have seen shows the correct part number when upgrading to the universals.

Actually I found the IFS to be just a little smoother, but then I'm not that great of a driver (yet). I've run both a T05r and the IFS one right after another and found the T05 r sluggish in the tight turns at the track. (both using TRF shocks both with same set up (spings, oil and tires))

BTW Tamiya was great about taking ownership of the error in the manual. Resolved the matter quickly.

To my knowledge the error is just in printed manuals and in boxed kits out of North America. The PDF manual is the correct updated manual.

I've just converted my TA05 to a IFS today using the hop-ups (53991,53992 and 53993) and if anyone else is looking at changing over to IFS make sure you also get 3x9.5 Step Screw (9805840), as i didn't get it and had to use some normal screws and use a dremal and make the head smaller and take some of the front brace off.

Will be nice to see how it goes, and try a set-up for next years Tamiya Eurocup. Has anyone got any tips on springs etc or have you left it the same as the standard TA05?

Yep I ran into that same problem, only I dremeled the chassis brace instead of the screw. As far as springs go, I use the ones that came with my 05R. I did adjust the spacers and flipped the arms around to match that of the instruction manual. It is just as stable as when it was an 05R. Great on outdoors asphalt, but I had trouble with carpet and I haven't had a chance to try the setup from a few posts above.
