Exclamation Tamiya Spare Parts

After my first day at the track, I discovered how important it is to have spare parts, especially when the track doesnt carry a lot of tamiya stuff. So, now that I'm spare parts shopping, I seem to be finding seemingly identical parts with different part numbers and varying prices. Is there a major difference in the parts other than the part being made for a different chassis?

Heres an example for front uprights:
51103
51352
51332
(You can google Tamiya followed by part number)

From your list;

TAM51103 are for the older LWT suspension used for the 415
TAM51352 are plastic versions of the latest type
TAM51332 are the carbon re-inforced versions.

The first one is a different design to the second two, which themselves are different materials too each other.

Best bet, look in your manual, and use the part number from there

I agree. The surest way is to look at my manual. But, I'm just a little curious why this website lists the 51103 as used by the TB EVO chassis.

Take a look.

Simple, because it does. Tamiya has a great parts support system online.

As always, one of the great thimgs about Tamiya is they have a lot of parts commonality. Sometimes you just have to dig a little to find the info.

I'm running a tamiya 415MS with the lightweight suspension set listed here. http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=53899

Would any uprights listed here fit?

Thanks for you help...
