Fun for a while but poor value, few moving parts
" I'm a big Lego Technic fan and have grown up building and enjoying increasingly expensive and complex kits.
I was bought this for my birthday and at first was very pleased, but as my 2 hour build time suggests this kit isn't very complex at all, visually apparent when scanning the parts bags by the severe lack of gears, springs, pneumatics or any of the cool stuff that makes the more expensive builds generally more fun and challenging.
What you get instead is a Bluetooth controller module and motors which are very impressive, but make you quickly realise is where all the cost is for this kit (along with the Top Gear branding), as the parts list is really quite basic.
The inclusion of a differential is cool, but it's lacking any sort of suspension - without it the car simply beaches whenever you go over a bump.
The smartphone app (at least for Android) is quick, intuitive and works well - presumably another factor in the high cost of the kit though.
And if the hardest part is fiddling with all the decals then you know you're in trouble ;)
Personally I think it would have been worth spending a little more and getting the actual 4x4 truck, or saving up and getting the big digger. But I won't tell my wife that... "
