    What a great product!
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    It’s scary at first because of all the parts but honestly the instructions are so easy to follow that it makes everything so easy to build. My son and I built it together and it was neat watching him build this with me. He was so excited when we finished and hasn’t put it away since! It’s a great bang for your buck! My son has been playing with it all over the house and even took it outside and let me tell you, it’s very sturdy!

    Awsome car
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    I got this for my son for Christmas he was very excited. It took us about 3 hrs to put together so being a 10 year old he got very impatient. There was alot of tiny pieces and the directions were somewhat easy for me to understand but for my 10 year old son it was kind of difficult for him to understand. I did have to put most of it together. The pieces did snapp together very easy and if you put the wrong piece on it was easy to unsnap and fix it. It was very easy to set up once you got it put together. You just download the app and turn the Bluetooth on and let it sync. It is hard to steer its very touchy. It is neat cause it tells you the speed and the incline which makes it very neat. If you hit the car off somthing though the piece the holds the wheel on likes to keep popping off so this is a car that you have to be very gentle with. Other than that my son loves it.

    Solid model, less than great controls

    The buggy itself is a nice kit. The build, while not complicated, was fun, and the resulting car was solid. Although I do think it's a bit pricey given the brick count. I also like how fast it moves. For an indoor RC toy it's moves at a nice clip. Unfortunately the controls are not great. The single joystick controlling both speed and direction make it difficult to control given how fast it moves. I understand Lego was going for a bit of a retro feel with this kit, but any older RC vehicle I used always had separate speed and steering controls. I echo other reviewers who hope a software update will include a second controller option.

    Hi there. If you're having trouble with the controls for this model we would suggest making smaller, more precise movements with the virtual joystick to help maneuver the buggy, especially when at speed!

    Build was good, car is great to look at. However driving experience awful, almost impossible to go straight and turning right. Seems that the motor is pulling the wheels permanently left. Especially disappointed with this set as was purchased for lockdown and a bit of fun in the lounge.

    Hi there! We're sorry to hear you're having trouble controlling the buggy. The best thing to do is double-check your build. Sometimes there may be a piece just a little off from where it should be. You’ll also want to make sure that all the pieces are pressed tightly together.
