Tamiya Manta Ray

Does anyone know where to get original Tamiya hop-ups?

I've found a few but not all, I need to know if 3rd party parts can be used?

Maybe here
http://www.marketworks.com/StoreFron...spx?sfid=79026
but ebay is always a good source.

Also, many of the TA01/TA02 hop ups will work too.
Take a look at http://asiatees.com
The only major differences are Shocks, Shock Towers, A-Arms and
Dogbones. Most of the rest can be interchanged between the TA01/02 and
the Manta Ray.

In other words, your Buggy can easily be converted into a Sedan, Rally
car or Desert racer type truck.

Thanks

I've just drooled over the nice alu parts. I'm looking for better
universals and I think I remember seeing a carbon driveshaft linking the
back box to the front.

On my TA02 I have Kose Shock towers and Center Drive Universal. Now
these are very rare indeed. I am still looking for one of those Gray
front gearcases that were on the Taisan Porshe. Have you seen my latest
Custom Tamiya?

At least it should be easier to get hold of parts soon.

Search for victor101car on ebay.co.uk . He does original Tamiya parts and
hop-ups, not used. Hop-ups are retail packaged and some parts are retail
packaged and some from kit splits.
