Of course it will. Both the Long and Short arms are interchangable...

I'm glad you brought all this up though. I just had a look at the original IFS instructions, and this is what I found:

- Uses long arms (plastic)
- Uses the old style 950-bearing uprights and steering knuckles (plastic)
- Uses new style c-hubs (plastic)

IFS-R uses the newer 416we suspension (short arms & 1050 bearings).

I can say that I think it's great that Tamiya made all these parts interchangeable. Just remember though, if you want to run the uprights with the larger 1050 bearings (416-carbon or TB03-plastic), you need the newer axles as well...

Yes, that's where my caution was...

I knew something changed, but didn't remember when, hence I was wary with earlier Q's about the steering arms

All good info and I hope it stops someone going through the same headache!

I don't see any 415's...

BTW: The car performed flawlessly. Killed the competition. If I can keep it running this well, I might have to move up to expert...

I'm wondering if anybody can help us 415 guys out:

I'm really getting sick and tired of constantly fiddling with my sway-bar mounts on my MSXX. I've
already drilled them and added grub-screws (as seen in a few of the pics above), but I cannot seem
to keep them from constantly readjusting themselves.

Recently I've noticed that some of the old pictures of the TRF team's 415's actually have different
sway-bar mounts on them. I would like to know if you can tell me what they're from?



As you can see they use a two piece mount so the bar sits further back sandwiched between them.
The outer piece has the proper hole for grub-screw hole. Perhaps they are parts from an X-ray or
something. I would really like to get a set of these if I can...

Looks as they come from the Evo5.

L-parts 51254

But at this car the bulkheads are also slightly slotted so the sway bar have enough play.
At the pic there is the swaybar sandwiched, so it looks like they have used the plastic parts from the Evo4 (L-Parts 51108).
There the holders are in one pice moulded. Looks like it is cutted in two.

Greetings Rainer
