I REALLY wanted to rate this higher. When I was looking through the instructions online (while waiting for the set to cross the ocean), I was massively excited to finally have this set. There are so many options given in the manual for ways to change things. When I actually built it though, it was a bit of a letdown. The various engine configurations are just cosmetic, the extra motor and speed computer aren't included, and so there's just not that much to do. It's a sweet set and I love seeing Lego make unique machines, but there's just not enough play value here. Additionally, I was excited to have my first set with Flex System parts, but they too were a big letdown. The concept is great, and it'd likely work well on a different vehicle. Here though, it's too sloppy of a steering mechanism. Frankly, the set would be better with fixed wheels in the front than these. It's not like you can steer it while it's running anyway.
