    Great in (almost) Every Way
    I would recommend this to a friend!

    This was a fun build, with the engine and transmission being my favorite parts. The transmission has a really neat way of allowing one to change gears (shown below). I wish this had fewer stickers, but that problem is shared with most sets. The only qualm I have with the technical parts is the steering. It's loose and wide, to be blunt. However, as I have no better ideas, it'll have to do for now. The wide radius makes playing with it less fun, but it doesn't affect the car's looks, which are sublime. It'll be a fine addition to my Lego...

    Great concept if simplifying a 2 speed transmission and simple steering. Once vehicle is rolling, can see internals...

    Best Technic Ever (so far)
    | 14-18
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Purchased for: Self
    This set is SO GOOD!!! I love the working 2-speed gearbox and the front wheel drive! The working pistons in 1st gear are great! My tip is: use 1st gear as a kind of parking gear and use 2nd as performance because it can do spins and skids(if the owner makes it)! I actually don't think I'll change it to the Track Car 2 in 1 model because it is SO FUN TO DRIVE! I adore driving it around my living room. It's also like a Mercedes Benz S Class in some ways, because that car is so good it should cost more than it does, and this car is very similar. The only improvement it could have is 4 wheel drive to make the parking a bit easier and have less maneouvres in tight spaces, but apart from that, it is an exceptional Lego set, and a good buy.

    A very surprisingly great set that was fun to build, but most importantly really fun to have on my shelf. Quality of the build is top notch and technic parts are pretty cool, the gear box is really fun to play with
