I bought this set for my birthday and it was quite worth it. But in the same trip to the LEGO store, I also bought the power fuctions motor set (the one with the lights) and it greatly improved the set. It is VERY easy to add that power fuctions set to this model. the battery pack fits perfectly in the back and only takes an extra small axle to add the motor to the drivetrain. Also, the lights are easy to install (but it is necessary to wrap the wire around the frame a few times so it doesn't drag on the ground. one of the definite cons would have been the tires. They just look to small for the wheels so I put on the skull truck tires that are slightly larger. in the back, the tires don't rub but in the front the bumper has to go (It was ugly anyway) and be replaced with a better, more rugged looking one. also, the doorhinge has to be modified but that's easy. But without any mods, this an average model with a cool front suspension and a limited slip diff in the rear. The steering works well, and this model is fun to push around and steer, and since it isn't too heavy, the steering is very easy to operate, even at a standstill. The tiny 4cyl engine is kinda lame indeed, but its obviously all the designers could fit in there. The B-model is REALLY REALLY awesome, but it's much harder to fit the power functions to it.Overall, this set is big and certainly worth the money, even if you can't afford the power functions. Keep spending your money on LEGOS, everyone, it's worth it. (especially this set)

I have to admit that this isn't a bad car, but it only has 3 shock absorbers, one in front and two in the back. this makes the front easier to bounce than the back. you just have to tap the front and it will bounce up and down, but for the back you really have to push down on it, another thing i don't like is how it only comes with a v4 engine, however it is easy to build and has some pretty nice and useful parts.

      This Lego set was a big hit with our 8-year old grandson! He especially liked the suspension system and other details that were "cool".

        from Citrus Heights

        Comments about LEGO Technic Limited Edition Extreme Cruiser (8081):

        Amazing!! This is one of the best purchase`s I have ever made. I have recently started to dip into lego technic because of all of the functionality within all of the sets, and if your looking to start building technic sets, this is the set for you!! Pros: totally customizable, all of the gears in the engine that drive the wheels and lets you spin one wheel while the other wheel can sit in place, two speical pieces that holds the engine in place and makes it more compatable with other technic pieces, another speical piece that conects the drive for the rear tires to the engine! Cons: thiers only one spring for the front tires. But this is a great set for new technic builders with some extra money!!!! BUY THIS SET!!!!

        Primarily purchased this model to fit the motors and IR remote control from the excavator set. This model is light and the mechanics are smooth making it ideal to add 3 motors to the drive shaft and 1 for steering.
