Tamiya has one for the TA05 #53916. I'm thinking that it should work because the 417 sway bars work on the TA05.

Sneaky. That's almost as bad as the fake iPhone pictures that always show up.

It's a relief, though, because I see two old busted gear diffs in that car! :lol:

What suspension arms is on the left handside car? Is that the normal plastic or new arms he was testing? Different color.

Qatmix 08-16-2013 12:49 AM

They look thicker, there are bigger C hubs though (like the ones on the T04). When I got the info I was told the arms were shorter, but as I was also passed the pic above I would take it with a pinch of salt (Or a Cup). :)

CraigM 08-16-2013 03:16 AM

Definitely not the kit arms. Possibly the arms they used at 2012 WC, possibly TA05 arms, possibly something else :D

C-hubs look different and only 2 screws in the damper stay too :D

That Photoshop job is quite bizarre - 'shopped in the weird swaybar mount and front shock tower screws. WTF??!! :lol::lol:
