An interesting find... I was trying to skip the same process I had to do for my mini interior (combining two right hand interiors to have both a driver and navigator). Was hoping to combine a Left Hand Drive and Right Hand Drive Tamiya interior and was surprised to find out they're quite different. Kind of cool, even though they won't work together... Left hand drive has driver and seat much further forward and shorter cockpit for the smaller cars, and some cool details that stand out too. (will post this up in the body shop section for future reference)

Tamiya #54157 1/10 Touring Car Cockpit Set (Right-Hard Drive)
Tamiya #54298 1/10 Touring Car Cockpit Set (Left-Hand Drive)

This is a great pic! Can you also supply the part numbers used for each?

My next M-chassis car will definitely make use of left hand drive. That driver even looks a bit smaller, which would be more scale. Great find Kev!

Yeah I'm liking that one for my little Renault too... the left seems a little harder to get

Glad you guys found it useful, all this time I assumed they're were carbon copies :huh: ... every day's a new day!

I have the RHD one on order for my Slide Hack project because it's a 1/10 Tamiya TA03F and quite a bit bigger than my M01 Mini or even the long wheelbase M06 RX-7.

No no, you misunderstood me. I knew that they both existed, but not the key differences between the two.

Haha I'm just messin'. ;) I didn't know about the differences either when I first saw them. Even after googling images it wasn't clear. I ordered a RHD plate because the car it's going in is JDM only so I lucked out. :D
