TIMBERRRRR!!
Volvo is a renowned actor in the global commercial vehicle market, with one of their flagship brands being the FH Series that underwent a full model change in 2012. This R/C model assembly kit recreates the 750hp 16.1-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine FH16 Globetrotter 750 6x4 timber truck from that range. The model has a realistic body, and a chassis featuring numerous metal parts. Gear changes are also possible via transmitter controls.

FEATURES:

  • Ladder frame features aluminum side channels with resin cross members.
  • Depictions of stakes and cab rear headboard use a durable combination of resin and metal.
  • Power from the front-mounted motor is delivered to rear axles via propeller shaft. A built-in differential gear on each axle enables smooth cornering.
  • Highly-realistic suspension utilizes metal leaf springs and friction dampers. The model enjoys easy driving thanks to the float-mounted die-cast front and reinforced resin rear axles.
  • The highly accurate body captures the FH16 Globetrotter form, with stainless steel photo-etched front grille, and cab interior details.
  • TR Mighty Tuned motor (35T) provides plenty of power, even when driving with loads.
