Well I did not think Id be back in the builds section for a very long time, but here we are. Earlier this year, or maybe last year, I tried to make my TB01 into a buggy by using TL01B suspension parts and a few other bits and pieces, only to find out Tamiya made 2 truggy style vehicles based on the TB01 chassis, the Levant and Super Levant. BUT both are XB Builds and do not come in kit form. Anywhere. There are differences between the Super and normal, mainly the Super has a longer wheelbase, and a 8t motor, where as the Levant has a 16t motor. Both are fully brushless out of the box, which is unusual for Tamiya. Fast forward to December 27th 2017. Tamico i find out are having a sale. And in this sale, they have a few Levant Chassis, but only the chassis already built for a silly cheap price. No wheels, no electronics, no tyres, no body Just chassis. So ive bought one, it arrived today, already built, my plan is to... strip it to see what its running, bearing wise, and then fit my own brushless system, amd other the next couple of months source a body, stickers and wheel and tyre set. Ill do a full strip down and rebuild with pics.
My dream is a Super Levant for bashing around. But today it's a rare and less affordable rc. So I want made a custom version with original parts only. I have already a TT02T, but I want something more capable. The original Levant is more affordable, but it lack a slipper clutch (essential item for a pleasant off road). I have considered the DF03, but I'm not a big fan of this chassis. 2wd is not enough appealing... Suggestions? So it seems that the only way is to buy the levant and transfer all the stuff in the SL chassis and rebuild from scratch the slipper clutch. For motorizing I want try to swap motor and esc fron the Levant with my tblm10,5T (with proper gearing) Tips?
