"I bought this set because I thought that it was cheap and worth the shot to buy it. It is pretty okay, especially if you only focus on the first set. The second version (the catamaran, I think) is definitely just bad. I love the smaller Technics because you have the option to rebuild them, but this is just not worth it. The second is practically the racing yacht except that the rudders are different. The sails and the structure (except maybe the hull) are not changed at all. I am very disappointed about the creators' imagination of the second set. That being said, it is still a pretty awesome set. It looks great, the way the steering works is awesome, the rubber bands slip very slightly but I think it doesn't matter, and the way the wheel is floppy is totally normal and realistic. In a racing yacht, the boat, to steer most efficiently, needs to have total leaning ability. That is why the wheel bounces back and forth: to move the center of gravity. The sails look awesome, but the front one is too flimsy. It tends to lean towards one side, because it is not well attached to the pole. It is pretty cool how the yacht (and catamaran) lean to the left or right, and how you can turn the main sail. Overall, that is what one might expect from a cheaper set, excepting the fact of the poor invention of the second set."
"This little set is really worth it, and if you're not willing to spend much on Legos, this is the set for you. The functionality is very good, with the playability being excellent. The one downside of this set is that it doesn't have steering like most Lego Technics, but it is still pretty awesome. The 2nd set looks pretty great too."
"This is a very cool set, with the awesome orange color, and the fantastic engine and the tiny pistons. These pistons were on the Mack Anthem though already. It is quite nice that the steering control is at the back, giving it a nice twist, plus the awkwardness of it being on top is gone. There are plenty unique pieces for a $50 set. The behind is quite weird, though, since it is kind of two squarish without curves. It's somewhat sad that there are only two features in this car, the engine and the steering; I wish there were opening doors and an adjustable spoiler or something. But those are the only cons; everything else looks super cool and awesome, and it is quite great that a brand name car is available at such a low price! I'd definitely buy it if I were you!"
"This car looks awesome! There are several unique pieces, and the stickers are pretty great. I love the orange on the gray scheme. The only downside is that this set doesn't have a good thing to come along with it, and this wind tunnel thing doesn't work too well."
