Great fun to build, but end product disappointing
" My wife gifted me a small Harry Potter Lego set for my birthday (I'm a huge Harry Potter fan), after which I sort of got hooked onto Lego and searched for additional builds. I love cars, so I decided to buy the Technic build of Lego. It was immense fun building this set, to see the car come alive bit by bit, but the end result was extremely disappointing. For starters, the rear suspensions were not strong enough to carry the weight of the car (pictures attached for reference). Secondly, the tie-rods that attach the wheels to the steering column scrape against the wheel rim from the inside which causes the front wheels to drag and not move smoothly (pic attached). What's even worse is the rear wheels which are attached via the transmission at the rear do not move at all because one of the major gears inside grinds badly against a red colored washer (again, pic attached). The problem about the gear grinding against the washer is something i came across while I was building the transmission, I actually rebuilt the transmission 3 times to see if the problem got solved but every time part 6133119 (grey gear) continued to grind and get stuck onto part 4227155 (red washer). I have attached a video for reference too. I bought this set from Amazon, and even though I love the look and feel of the overall build and enjoyed the process of building this set, I must say that the end result is extremely disappointing. "
