I have never been a big fan of the Technic pull backs. With that said, this is a very good use of that. The bugcatcher and flame elements have a loose fit. As this thing scoots across the floor those parts look the part. And the adjustable wheelie bar lets it go straight or pull a wheelstand off the line. Just a matter of how you set it. Very good set for a quick build, and a good use of the pull back motor system.

Recommendation: meh by Jetro de Château

I do like both models very much though and I find it hard to choose between them. The dragster is fast and can do a wheely. The Race truck is a more solid build and you can do target practice with it, trying to get it to pass through the arch from the furthest possible distance.

Recommendation: no by VBBN

Its a set with a very limited audience. It doesn't offer anything groundbreaking in terms of parts, the wheelie bar is a fine function but not exactly something a flagship-buying fan would care about, and it's very limited in what you can do with it. For most people, I doubt this is worth a buy.

As a departure from the previous method of combining two distinct sets into one larger model, I appreciate the new 2-in-1 approach for this theme. The increase in part count has led to a more substantial model, and you no longer need to purchase both of the pair.

Recommendation: yes by Dimitri

This is a really fantastic little set. While it won't offer too much of a challenge, the build experience is still enjoyable. The finished model looks excellent and is bigger than expected. The starting lights are a welcome addition and the play feature not only works but is immensely fun to use. Best of all, it all comes at a price that is great value for money and could tempt any fans wanting to dip their toe into the world of LEGO Technic.
