Here and now i welcome you here in my seeker. Raj let’s have a closer look to the new buffalo scale. Crawler from chi made. First let’s check the body. It comes in clear polycarbonate and have to be cut and painted the front bumper, the chrome plated front grille and the fenders comes in hard plastic. There are also a lot of details on the body like windshield wipers side mirrors door handles and all are made in black hard plastic. De asemenea, the roof rack with integrated light bar is already included in the kit. Only the driver, figure and seats are not included. As always, i use the 4×4 vehicle driver figure from tamiya. There is also a hard plastic bumper on the back. Overall, the details on the body are amazing and in my opinion this is one of the best looking teammate scale crawler. Yet you may have noticed that there are no body pose visible from the outside. This is possible because the body holds from underneath at the rear. End with these two bolts Music in front with these two bolts here so to install the body, the two bolts at the back have to be inserted to the chassis first and then in front and then insert the pins from underneath to secure it. And the result is no more ugly body pose visible from the outside. This is a great improvement to the scale appearance, Muzica. The body is also a keep with light, buckets and ready to install five millimeter leds in front and at the rear, but the leds itself are not included in the kit gmail sold separately in led light set for the buffalo.
They offer also a kit for the lights in the front bumper and in the roof rack and with the lights on the truck looks even better later. We will check the chassis and its features, but now let’s go back on the trails, Music Applause Music. So here we are back in my garage, the teammate buffalo comes as kit and everything have to be assembled, but the build of this truck is a great pleasure. Everything fits well together and the used materials are excellent in the manual everything is well explained and visualized. If you are interested to see more of the build, you can find a complete build of the buffalo in a video series on my youtube channel, but now let’s have a closer look on the chassis and its features. First, you can see here. The chassis is equipped with inner fenders. This helps to keep out dirt and water, but it also improves the scale look of the truck the motor sits in front over the front axle beside the steering servo. This is good to keep the white in front here. You can see how the steering works. The steering angle is where we go. This is possible cause of the universals installed on the front axle in front. The truck have a thrilling suspension with pen hard bar to allow a presses during control and at the rear. It have a four link suspension. As you can see, all links are made in metal.
The front axle div has an offset position, it means it’s, not in the center of the axle, and the div cover is in a slightly effort position. This gives a good smooth surface here to slide over rocks. The dampers are filled with oil, the cylinders are made in metal and the spring preload can be adjusted by turning the ring on the top. They work really well and are soft and smooth Music. Here you can see the big gearbox, it have a two speed transmission out of the box, and this is the servo to switch the gears here. You can see how it works. The gear shift works perfect and you can see how the wheel speed is different in the two gears. Now i can show you how this two speed transmission works on the trails i’m in first gear, now full throttle the truck have an acceptable speed but it’s low enough to have a good control on rough terrain. apropo, i run a 3 cell lipo battery Music, now i’m going to switch to the second gear and, după puteți vedea, the truck is pretty fast, now much faster as in first gear. So this 2 speed transmission works great. The difference between the two gears is thick, and so this feature makes sense for me, Muzica. The next feature of this truck is the ttr transmission. This means the opposite. Turning drive shaft, după puteți vedea, partea din spate, drive, shaft turns counterclockwise and the front drive shaft clockwise.
This feature minimize torque twist one more feature of the transmission, the front axle overdrive. I have marked the tires and, după puteți vedea, when turning them, the front tires turning a little bit faster as the rear wheels. This overdrive transmission is a keep out of the box. It helps to keep the truck straight on difficult terrain and cornering, and the agility on the front wheel is much better. Gmail offers additional set of gears to get more overdrive or to eliminate this function. Muzica. I have the battery installed here. Many different batteries can be installed. There are multiple battery tray options in the kit. De asemenea, the position of the battery can be switched to a more forward position here. It depends what esc you use, so you can choose the best installation layout for your equipment. The receiver is installed here in this sealant box and so good protected from water and dirt. The wheels are beadlocks made in plastic, so no more glue is needed for the tires. The tires have an aggressive tread and are soft and sticky. They work really well on different terrain, so this was this short ovary of this buffalo’s features. Now let’s go back again on the trails Music, so Music Applause, Muzica, thank go Music, deci Muzica, this buffalo scale, crawler, is really a brilliant truck. The great features like the two speed transmission, the overdrive and the well balanced chassis works really good and the very detailed body it reminds on the chevy.
Blazer looks just awesome overall. This is for me by far the best gmail truck and now one of my favorite scale crawlers i have now. I say thanks for watching. Please give me a thumbs up for this video.
