I don't think either is really a Tamiya, they look like cheap Tamiya clones(& the chassis on the left, looks like nothing I've ever seen). Just from seeing the aluminum pieces, the color is wrong, & the toe blocks should be labeled if they're really a Tamiya part(they'll say things like 1A, 1C, 1E, 1XA, 1XB, etc. etc that help you figure out what toe setting it has). I hope if you bought them that you didn't pay too much for them...

Definitely not 416's and yes, very much doubt they are tamiya at all.

The width of the carbon chassis at the rear end is like no tamiya I've seen.

Blue is wrong. Bumper mounts are not tamiya. Phillips head screws. Turnbuckle adjusters definitely not tamiya either.

Yup, clones, along with the things mentioned above the giveways also include phillips head hardware instead of allen, and the Xray-copy front upper bumper support.
