Lightbulb ***TAMIYA TA05-MS COMPATIBLE PARTS HELP NEEDED***

HI ALL, I NEED SOME HELP SOURCING FRONT AND REAR ARMS, CHUBS AND KNUCKLES IN BLUE ALLOY FOR A TA05-MS IF I DECIDE TO TURN IT INTO A SHELF QUEEN.

THE TA05 ONES DONT WORK AS I HAVE TRIED THEM. FROM WHAT I READ SOME OF THE EVOLUTION 4 & 5 PARTS CROSS OVER TO THE TA05-MS.

ANY HELP OR INFO WOULD BE GREAT IN PARTICULAR PART NUMBERS AND WHERE THEY CAN BE BOUGHT FROM.

IVE SEEN THE EVOLUTION 5 ARMS LISTED ON THE RCMART SITE AND THEY LOOK TO BE THE RIGHT ONES. CAN ANYONE CONFIRM PLEASE

The TA05-MS uses the parts from the orignial light-weight reversible suspension. All these parts were standard equipment on the 415-MSX and later...

As for the alloy, you may want to skip it. Tamiya only made the rear uprights, so any front uprights and c-hubs will be aftermarket. Square probably makes the nicest matching blue ones, but that's about it. Most other brands get the blue color way wrong...

Yes, but only on the 415-MSX and later. The 415-MS and earlier have different suspension.

I think the parts your looking for are considered Evo-4 parts. You can look up all the part numbers online here. Just click the "product manual" link in the upper right corner...
