This is the GMADE 1/10 GS02F Military Buffalo TS Scale Crawler Kit (requires assembly plus servo, radio system, ESC, motor, and battery). GMADE is known world-wide for their design innovation and high quality. The Buffalo TS features a ton of high-tec, well made features designed to make a super rugged crawler that can take on the toughest conditions.
Steel Ladder Frame
- GS02F frame is designed to look as a chassis of a real car frame and the material of the frame is made of high strength steel, C-channel side rail and is with hex wrench bolted with cross members, which make it resistant to twisting or warping. Also, steel parts are black powder coated finish to prevent rust.
- The inner fender is directly fixed to the frame to reduce the flex and bending of the chassis and parts, it also reduces external objects to entering to the chassis during driving.
Adjustable wheelbase for 313 and 324mm custom bodies. (optional link kits are sold separately)
- GS02F chassis allows three types of easy adjustment of wheelbase convert kit to use any type of 313 and 324mm custom bodies (optional link kits are sold separately).
Front weight balance
- GS02F's weight balance designed to be placed on the forward of the chassis.
This will increase the tire traction to the front wheel to provide better crawling on a high tilt angle rocks and better driving performance when hill climbing and this will help minimizing the vehicle's rolling over when climbing.
Multiple battery location options
- GS02F can use all sizes of lipo batteries and Ni-MH batteries, and can be freely locate the battery position purpose of uses.
Chassis mounted servo system
- GS02F steering system has a steering servo on the frame just like a 1:1 real car.
It is designed to make it as closed to the zero bump steer so bump steer movement does not appear by front wheel suspension movements, so we ended up with maximizing the steering performance of the vehicle.
- In addition, the Panhard-bar is designed to avoid interference with nearby parts, so that the front suspension and shocks can move freely without any loss.
2 speed Hi/Lo transmission, with overdrive
- The GS02F transmission is designed to look as a real 1:1 scale vehicle, and provides the best performance according to the driving situation. Overdrive means, front and rear wheels rotate at the different speeds. The GS02F transmission is designed to rotate the front wheel faster than the rear wheel.
Torque Twist Reduce Transmission
- GS02F transmission is designed to drive in a stable position without pulling the balance of power transmitted to the axle. The front and rear universal shafts based on the transmitter each rotates clockwise and counterclockwise, this compensates for the forces acting on the opposite rotational forces due to the action(torque) and reaction(reverse torque) because of that this vehicle can run in a super stable conditions.
Zero Ackerman for improved steering radius
- The GA44 axle is using Zero-ackerman steering system with CVA to ensure maximum performance with a short turn radius and smooth motion even on rough off-road terrain.
Easily adjustable motor mount
Dual slipper clutch
- The slipper pads are designed to hold the spur gears evenly to allow more precise setting.
All metal internal gears
GA44 axles with hardened steel universal joints
- GA44 axle is designed with the hardcore rock crawler in mind. Axles are made of high-strength meterials, and it will look and perform optimum off-road perfermance as real 1:1 vehicle when 4-Link suspensions added. The GA44 axle housing is a durable one-piece type. The angle of the differential cover is designed to reduce the risk of damage due to frontal impact and is therefore very suitable for off-road driving.
Hi Steer knuckle arms
- By increasing the approach angle, you can over climb the obstacles more easily than a typical trial trucks.
- The GA44 front axle can be adjusted to the steering style to have a smooth and short turn angle depending on the driving style or to adjust to improve straight stability by changing the caster angle.
SD Scaler shock absorbers
- SD Scaler Shock is a Coil-over styled oil shock absorber optimized for the scale trucks. The oil filled inside the shock minimizes bouncing when the vehicle is driven, and provides a high-durability aluminum shock body with 3.5mm heavy duty shock shafts are added, these will help you to drive smoothly on rough surfaces. Beginners also can easily assemble this shock and change setups, and the adjustable nut makes it easy to adjust the ride-hight so you can quickly change your car setup even when driving condition changes.
MT-1902 1.9" M/T off road tires
- MT 1902 off-road tire made of super soft compound material provides high traction to the surface. The treads of tire pattern are suitable for off-road driving and are designed with large diameter that enables to run smoothly on any uneven road surface.
Buffalo clear lexan body with stealth body mounts
- The buffalo body is a SUV style body made of high-quality 1.5mm lexan, with this it has excellent strength and detail including front grille, light bucket, side mirrors, wiper, door handle and overfender to add details to the body. The accessory parts are made of high-strength plastic so they are resistant from the highly impacts, and include decals with realistic details.
Optional LED light kits available (shown, but not included)
