Ratings & Reviews+

LEGO® Technic - Race Kart (42048) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15.
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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit! As fan of motorsport, I really enjoyed this kit. For the size/price value, I rate the kit as one of the best from Lego. The build is challenging and technical enough to keep things interesting and fun. As others have noted, the restricted steering somewhat limits playing with it, but the cool engine and transmission make up for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This would be a very good set for kids that are interested in LEGO. It looks just like the kart I autocross.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little kit The kit takes a short amount of time for building, but for the money, few kits beat it. Not only is it fun to put together, but also the price paid makes sense for the time spent. Good work guys!

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.
