Rated 4 out of 5 by from Desert Racer After building the whopping mobile crane this came as a nice, easy relaxing build. I would strongly recommend it as a Technic starter's set. The pull-back motor is more powerful than I expected, and can propel the vehicle over 5 meters. Something that really surprised me was the sturdiness of the build. Even though it isn't particularly compact, the chassis is very strong and even the roll cage is quite firm. This model isn't exactly packed with features, but for only 149 pieces I reckon it's not too bad - there's a winch, opening roof, plus details like an adjustable seat, steering wheel, lights and two large angled rear exhausts. They all combine to create a cool little racer. It was smaller than I had hoped, however, and is only 170 mils long. But I would choose this over it's counterpart, the black racer, as it has more pieces, and more functions. The lime green colouring is a nice bonus and really makes it stand out. But is green the right colour for a desert vehicle? What about mixed tan or brown? The only real issue is that the winch's hook flies all over the place, especially on impact with the ground after a jump (something I had to try after construction and yes, it can execute good jumps). To fix this just attach the hook's stud to the green 5 beam behind it. Never thought I'd say this, but placing the stickers on was actually enjoyable as they make the set so much more authentic. It really is a fun build, something to enjoy and the play experience, particularly for younger children, is great value for $30 and is parallel to something 10 times as big, like the Cargo plane. I definitely look forward to the next wave of Technic pull-back racers, if there is one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From a 6-year old: "Fairly easy to build. I loved the pullback motor. Although, this one is the slowest of the pullback models..."
