    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 mantel.

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

    Bought the set because it looks cool. Didn't know it had a working 2 speed gearbox which was a fun surprise. Has an abnormally large turn radius which really limits the sets playability but it still looks very cool on the shelf next to all the other Technic sets.

    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
