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!

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

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).

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

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

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