    LEGO Technic Race Kart (42048) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 77.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Set. This is the first Technic set I've built and it was a pleasure from start to finish. I was a little concerned due to the number of small pieces but the instructions were extremely good. Thoroughly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely buy any Legolas product again and refer i My son absolutely loves Lego technic products! He has learned to put these together by himself because the directions are thorough and complete. He's 11 years old and has tackled some of the biggest Lego Tecnic sets!! This one was really easy for him, but fun and the second build is always a plus!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fair challenge, with some surprising functions As Technic Lego sets go, this is a fairly easy build. A teen or young adult experienced with Legos is looking at a 1-2 hour build time for the default model - I haven't personally built the alternate model. As with most Technic sets, seating some of the shafts and snap-on parts can be rough on the pads of your fingers and may require the assistance of an adult or an older sibling, and applying the stickers can be a tricky affair. With that said, the brunt of the build is simple and intuitive, and as with virtually every other Lego set, it's incredibly fun to watch it slowly take form. Once actually constructed, the basic kart design provides some of the expected features (a working steering wheel; a moving piston in the engine block), but what I hadn't expected was a working shift lever. It's a simple design, but it's incredibly neat, and also offers a look at how real-world transmissions work for curious young minds. Overall, an excellent Lego set for the price with surprisingly cool features. I highly recommend it to anybody who enjoys Technic sets.

    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 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.
