Here is my review. I really enjoyed this set. Unlike other technic sets that focus on mechanics first and presentation second, this set is truly about its looks. You would be surprised what a day from building can do for you. It gives your brain a chance to reboot and start over. This is the new set that add Power functions and pneumatic pumps for a fraction of the price of the Unimog.
Leg o makes hundreds and hundreds of different Technic parts in a multitude of colors. Just one constraint, it has to be created by LEGO. Opening the box instantly shows the effort put into the development of this set. It feels like a premium collectors piece worthy of the high price tag. Everytime it surprises me again how many people would like to build my models and ask for instructions. To meet the request, instructions for my latest Technic model the 42000 Street Rod alternative are now available at MOCplans! Also it has IR remote control, two L Motors and one of the new servo motors ( no more rubber bands on the steering ). Read my review of this fantastic set here.
There are also great sites like TechnicBRICKs that are updated frequently with all types of Technic creations from all over the world including various supercars. I also have dozens of direct links to some amazing builder’s websites at my own website. Read here my review of the LEGO 8110 Unimog. When you build it you have the sense of understanding. Just look how cool it looks, I couldn’t but buy it. Most guys love to talk to people who admire their work. 8.) Transmission woesOk, I am going to be upfront about this, Lego gearboxes are more complex than an actual transmission in a real car. One of the key factors is to keep this math number in mind, especially when you start running into «1/2 a Stud» difference where your 2 parts may not line up properly because they are off 1/2 of a stud width.
