Default Tamiya suspension arms

I am looking for the longest suspension arms I can fit ona TA05 chassis.
There is a number of options but I can't tell the differences, so any help would be apreciated.

This is what I have found (remember I am interested in the length, i.e. which arm is going to give me the widest stance):

51353
suspension arms listed as spare parts for TA05 V2, listed as "RC TB03 D Parts" on the Tamiya (US) website
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=51353

51297
RC TA05-IFS D Parts
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=51297

9004131 RC D Parts: 58299 (that's the car kit) - Order 53427
(Discontinued)
TB EVO III rear suspension arms (couldn't find a picture anywhere except for the tamiya manual)

50868
RC TA04 Suspension Arms
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=50868

53427
RC Hard Suspension Arm - TA04
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=53427

50942
RC TA04-SS D Parts - Suspension Arm
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=50942

53928 (this is what I have at the moment)
RC Short Reversible Sus Arm
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=53928

51104 (I have these too, they are the same length as the 53928)
RC TB Evo IV D Parts - Suspension Arm
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=51104

I guess this is pretty much it. Hope someone can help.

I am also aware a slightly wider stance can be achieved with the wider suspension mounts, but I am not interested in that option yet.

The EVO IV arms would be the longest or similar length as the old TA04 arms,

The short reversible arms are the shortest(416W.E./EVO V MS/TB-03/TA-05.VII)

The kit TA-04/TA-05/Hard Suspension arms are slightly longer

The lightweight reversible arms are the longest touring car arms(415MSX/X/416/TA05 R)

thank you guys,

What is the part number for the lightweight reversible TA05R? 49346? Tamiya's site says this is what comes standard on TB EVO IV kits which is 51104 (these come in the TA05R kit, by the way) and is the same length as the short reversible arm 53928 (I have both)! Confusing.

Here's the link:

Yeah, the short one is just 1mm shorter. I actually had to bring out the calliper. What a joke. Bummer.

6mm, I think.

Quick search on TamiyaUSA's site, and I found this

Hmmm. I already use those. We'll see if I can find some 24mm wheels with more offset.
