1/14 R/C Volvo FH16 Globetrotter 750 8x4 Model Tow Truck

Tamiya's series of ultra-realistic 1/14 scale R/C trucks has offered fun and realistic driving for the past several decades! This kit takes that driving fun to the next level with this tow truck, which makes its living towing heavy duty vehicles such as semi-tractor trucks. It promises a completely different element of enjoyment to predecessors in the series.
The kit seen here recreates the FH16 that is marketed by Volvo, a renowned manufacture in the global commercial vehicle market. The FH Series includes a 750hp 16.1-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine FH16 Globetrotter 750 8x4 tow truck.

Paraboard Parallel Charging Board /Deans (T-Plug) Connector

Paraboard Parallel Charging Board for Lipo /Deans (T-Plug) Connector

This Paraboard lets you charge and balance up to six lipo batteries at once! This board features Traxxas connectors for your batteries' main leads and JST-XH balance plugs ranging from 2S to 6S. They plug right into most popular models of 6S lipo balancing chargers that have 7-pin balance ports with 2.5mm pin spacing.

To get the most out of your Paraboard, pick up one of our GT-400 chargers. It provides 400W of total charging power and charge rates of up to 20 amps! This paraboard has a maximum charge rate of 30 amps.

Battery packs must be of the same cell count (only charge 2S with 2S, 3S with 3S, etc.) and battery voltages must be within 0.1V per cell (0.1V for 1S, 0.2V for 2S, etc.) of all other batteries connected to the Paraboard at the same time. Use a Cell Spy or similar voltage tester to check the voltage of each cell before connecting to the Paraboard.
