Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great in (almost) Every Way 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small things can be good too For people like me who like motor sports in general I think this is a interesting car, reminds the real Kart. Very good choice of colors and as always the wonderful details of the engineers of Lego, as the engine and the car's gearbox. Congratulations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally awesome 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome looking kart. The functioning engine and two speed transmission really make this kart more interesting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Set! 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
