    LEGO Technic Race Kart (42048) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 74.
    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 5 out of 5 by from Best Technic Ever (so far) This set is SO GOOD!!! I love the working 2-speed gearbox and the front wheel drive! The working pistons in 1st gear are great! My tip is: use 1st gear as a kind of parking gear and use 2nd as performance because it can do spins and skids(if the owner makes it)! I actually don't think I'll change it to the Track Car 2 in 1 model because it is SO FUN TO DRIVE! I adore driving it around my living room. It's also like a Mercedes Benz S Class in some ways, because that car is so good it should cost more than it does, and this car is very similar. The only improvement it could have is 4 wheel drive to make the parking a bit easier and have less maneouvres in tight spaces, but apart from that, it is an exceptional Lego set, and a good buy.

    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 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 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 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 Goldmine of parts! I do a lot of research before buying a Lego set to ensure I'm getting the most for my money, and this is one of the best Technic sets to get if you don't want to splurge for one of the more expensive ones, ESPECIALLY if you have very few other Technic sets and parts. The most attractive feature is the ability to shift gears which, although mostly aesthetic in the model, means that it comes with a set of parts specifically designed for this purpose. With a bit of creativity, you can get a lot of versatility out of this set to add to your LEGO creations.
