    Fun for a while but poor value, few moving parts

    I'm a big Lego Technic fan and have grown up building and enjoying increasingly expensive and complex kits. I was bought this for my birthday and at first was very pleased, but as my 2 hour build time suggests this kit isn't very complex at all, visually apparent when scanning the parts bags by the severe lack of gears, springs, pneumatics or any of the cool stuff that makes the more expensive builds generally more fun and challenging. What you get instead is a Bluetooth controller module and motors which are very impressive, but make you quickly realise is where all the cost is for this kit (along with the Top Gear branding), as the parts list is really quite basic. The inclusion of a differential is cool, but it's lacking any sort of suspension - without it the car simply beaches whenever you go over a bump. The smartphone app (at least for Android) is quick, intuitive and works well - presumably another factor in the high cost of the kit though. And if the hardest part is fiddling with all the decals then you know you're in trouble ;) Personally I think it would have been worth spending a little more and getting the actual 4x4 truck, or saving up and getting the big digger. But I won't tell my wife that...

    So first off this is a great looking model. It’s got some really nice details but sadly that mostly comes from the many stickers it has. I would say the kit is expensive considering the number of actual parts so I’m guessing most of the cost is in the 2 motors and the Bluetooth hub. The build itself is quite simple and didn’t take that long which was disappointing considering the price but still a fun build. Lastly driving with the app. This is good fun as you can use gyro control as well or even drive manually where you pick the speed. It is unfortunately WAY too slow especially when driven in auto mode as despite the name never seems to want to get into top gear. Overall this is a nice kit to build but it’s too expensive, there’s too much reliance on stickers to give detail and it’s woefully slow to drive. I got this as a birthday present so I am quite disappointed with it, might not have been if the car was twice as fast. LEGO you can do so much better than this.

    I bought this set because it is different from my other sets, which just sit on my shelf, getting gusty, only to be built, and rarely played with. Now, this has the fun of building it, but more after your done, rewarding you with access, almost like motivation, the app, which allows you to control it. The app works well, and there are different control setups, so you can choose the one you prefer. Only 6 batteries and you can pop some new ones in when they die. The app even has a calibration system, shown as "The Workshop", which calibrates the steering if your vehicle is out of sync. My only real disappointment is that TECHNIC missed out on a great opportunity to make this set the first TECHNIC set to include a Minifigure, which could have been the STIG racer from the show. It would've made this set exclusive, and higher in demand. All in all though, It's a great set.

    I bought this set with the project of using the motors and pieces to help me make MOC cars. So I'm not really disappointed. Overall, I think the price is decent when you compare to powered up items sold separately, plus it comes with many pieces. I have a few problems with this rally car. - There is a problem in the front wheels alignment which make it lean left when supposed to go straight. Also, the design does not make it possible to fine tune it. - The car is really heavy, so it's not as fast as it could be, and make it almost impossible to climb hills. - The powered up app does not have any instructions so I guess I'll have to figure out myself how to program. I'm lucky to already have done a little programming a few years ago in university, but I'm pretty sure I'll struggle a lot to make something out of it... and look for advices. I guess for now I'll stick to the rally car template. But for kids, it could have been nice to have a friendly user environnement to use the motors.
