    pieces potential, but poor model

    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.

    LEGO + Top Gear + RC Car = Awesomeness
    I would recommend this to a friend!

    Love this set. As a big fan of Top Gear which I watch with my son who loves LEGO, anything with wheels and Top Gear this has appeal on so many levels. It’s not a performance RC car. Get that straight. It’s slow. But still it’s very fun to drive it around after it’s built. It’s quite suitable for driving it indooors, which is not something cant do with regular RC cars. I don’t do a lot of LEGO builds myself and rarely buy LEGO for myself but I loved this one and vastly enjoyed putting it together and playing around with it after.

    Fun build, fun to play with

    It's kind of rare for me to play with any set after it's built. I generally admire it for a while, take it apart (space concerns), and come back to it later to start over. This was a lot of fun to actually play with after it was complete. One question... Is mine the only one that pulls to the right? Even after re-calibrating the steering, it routinely pulls. Thinking it has something to do with the differential (?) at the rear axle...

    Much like a real car...sounds like something might be a little off in the alignment. We'd recommend double-checking your build to make sure everything's in the right spot and that gears have enough room to turn. (Especially make sure the space around the gears is even on each side!) If you need a hand with troubleshooting, you can always get in touch at LEGO.com/service.

    First Technic Set
    | 19-24
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Purchased for: Self
    I have been around LEGO my whole life and have been more serious about LEGO as a hobby in the last four years or so. This is my first real Technic set (I'm excluding a small $10 set I picked up a couple years back). I have always been intrigued by Technic but was never quite willing to pick one up, as I preferred to spend the money on a modular or other Creator Expert build. I decided to put my curiosity to rest with the Rally Car, and I am very pleased with my decision. The build was fun and challenging, while maybe a little tedious. Initially I was upset that the set does not come with a remote controller and is dependent on an app. I like to use LEGO as a means of stepping away from my phone not being on it more. However, the many features within the app, like the time trial races and motion controlled steering have convinced me that the app is a bit superior to a remote controller. For the price I do wish the car was a bit faster, however it really isn't that bad. For what it lacks in speed, this car makes up for in steering and control. Overall, I would highly recommend this set to any LEGO fan who is curious about Technic.
