well, let's start off with the rating of the stock model. This is a fairly capable R/C lego model. The new L motor and servo motors are a welcome addition to the technic family and will hopefully be used on other future lego sets. It can drive fairly easily over shoes, 4" notebook binders, large books, and, LEGO forbid, even rocks or dirt clods outside. The suspension is far more impresive than the unimog's, off roader, or any other LEGO sets in the past. The truck can drive one tire on an object that is as tall as about 4 inches or 10 CM without taking a single other tire off the ground! Even more impressively, it can flex onto an object of a maximum 5 and 3/4 inches or about 15 CM tall without tipping over-but that's with one tire off the ground. Remember, these numbers are surely different with the super top-heavy B-model, and are numbers taken with a little extra weight added (lights, body armor, etc. so it probably tips over a slightly taller measurement, but you get the idea, this thing is BEAST! And I don't mean my version, I'm takling about the one with limited slip differentials front/ rear, no winch, unbraced/ flimsy rock sliders, no rear bumper, unguarded roof/hood, and a rediculous, sad excuse for a bull bar on the front. (In case you did't get that, I just listed all the differences between the out-of-the-box model and mine.;) ) Other cons I might add that I havn't fixed yet are these: needs power puller tires, slightly underpowered(needs XL motors), should be easier to adjust gear ratio after construction, and during extreme rollovers (ex. tumbling down 5-10 carpeted stairs) the roof supports on the front (would be windsheild holders, but of course there is no glass) sometimes pop out from the top or bottom, usually bottom. But that's not even the best of it! The iPhone5 will fit nice and snug between an axle, two poles, and the IR reciever , and peek its camera just barely over the top of the roof so you can video it driving around all over stuff from the truck. You can also modify the truck so it can hold the phone better. (I smell you tube trend!) Why does it not block the IR signal? Don't ask me, but it still works. If you want a model with some or all of these custom features, pay close attention...............................NOW! MY RIG: Okay, here's the most awesome (recognisably) modded 4x4 crawler I'VE ever seen, so if you have a better one, let us know! So, I started of with bracing the rock sliders since they were so flimsy, then replaced the bull bar with a full bumper that was really square and ugly, so I took it off. Then, I decided one day that I would add a unimog-style winch to the front. If you try it, it's acctually quite easy. all you have to do is take out the supports between the two front fenders on the chassis to make room for it all. I added a switch in the cabin to control the winch. The actual winch piece fits onto the front fairly easily with few modificatins to the front end. I had to modify the winch itself a little, because i already had the hook tied to the rope. Hence, the really weird roller fairlead in the pics.(see pictures for details.) Then I installed a cool rear bumper that covers the whole back, and protected the front end with that angry-eyed bumper that I whipped up. (Note, if you can see the front side hood panels, thay are SO scratched up, and were in need of something to protect them, so I added those tubes above the hood corners and discovered they look SO awesome, so I kept them for looks, if not anything else.) Then I beefed up the roll cage and added a support above the windsheild. (Note: all the shiny stuff you see on the body armor is that rubbery hollow tubular stuff that came on the racers nitro muscle and other racers vehicles back a few years ago.) And just recently, I took apart the front/rear axles and replaced those lame limited slip differentials with solid axles. (See pics) trust me, if you don't use EXACTLY the gear configuration that I did with the lockers, it doesn't work. I found it impossible to use anything ese because the gears kept slipping. Perhaps a really tight worm drive would also work, but I found this was the only way. JUST DO IT LIKE I DID! I was worried the lockers would make it so the tires would hardly turn, and they won't, stationary on carpet, but they barely did with slips anyway. Saccrificing the abuility to turn wheels while stationary is totally worth having the ability to keep on plowin' with two tires off the ground. (Don't know how you could do that without hi-centering her though.) Also it does considerably better in the mud and snow with the lockers, too, as the truck doesn't stop if just ONE tire looses traction. I modded the remote control because I found it awkward to turn the wheels from a verdical knob. I'm sure someone's done this before, but just to prove it's possible, here. (See pics) I also added lights which was as simple as taking out the little clear lenses, flipping them around, and putting them back on, the knobs pointed inwards. Then I just wired those LEDs to the middle hole. (there's three little lights on each side but I only had one thing of lights so I put them in the middle ones. That's all I did. (LOL) I've also heard it is possible to easily adjust the gear ratio, but if anything, I'd go even lower to give it more torque for climbing uphill, which it doesn't do at the moment. I just replaced the batteries in mine but it still seems to have way less torque than everyone else's I've seen. I hope this review gives you potential buyers another reason to get the greatest technic set in history, TODAY! (That's right. I said it. The greatest. Is anyone gonna disagree with me? No, because I'm right.) And I also hope that this gives you current owners of this set or alike the inspiration to beef it up like a real rock crawler, until you can drive it down a full flight of stairs without it breaking. :) Thanks, everyone for reading. I wish you all the best of luck modding (or not modding) your 9398 4x4 crawler. Rember to click the "thumbs up", if this was helpful and awesome, and thumbs down if you think my truck is ugly and I am an abnoxious moron who USES TOO MUCH CAPITAL LETTERS but really, I do, so sorry about that. BYE!

I have a major problem with this set. I own and have built hundreds of Lego sets, and I know it is not me. In fact, I disassembled and rebuilt this set twice. Building it is relatively easy. However, there is a great deal of gear slippage, rendering the set useless when it comes to the play experience. It runs for a few seconds, then the gears slip, and it stops. i have to push it again with my foot to get it going, and then it works briefly, and the whole cycle repeats. It cannot overcome any obstacles, no matter how small. It will simply stop after bumping up against a small notebook or a pencil, instead of climbing over them. I'm very disappointed, especially considering the price of the set. Lego .... if you come up with a quick fix, please let me know!

Lego AND remote control how great is that?

By Jackslegoassistant

from Calgary

Comments about LEGO Technic 2-in-1 4 x 4 Crawler (9398):

Built this with my 6 year old. Was a great way for him to learn about how the mechanics and suspension systems of a vehicle work. Only issue is that it breaks fairly easily if it gets dropped. But overall love it.

      Very impressive model! It is quite capable considering it is only a toy. It is also easy to modify gearing to suit your desired performance. This model will provide many hours of fun not just in the build, but playing with it when your done as well. I have been collecting Lego technics for many years and this is one of the nicest sets to date.

      Comments about LEGO Technic 2-in-1 4 x 4 Crawler (9398):

      My mum got me this set for my birthday. Ever since the first time i saw I really wanted it and i was so excited when i got to start building it. It took me 2 days to build and i would definitely recommend this set to a friend. It is worth the money and I had a great time playing and building it. I would recommend buying some extra batteries because it does go through them very quickly.

      Great item. Only one design flaw: Roll Bar lights fell off while playing. Easy to follow instructions for the Crawler on the box, however, if you choose to make any of the other suggestions on the box, you have to go on-line and get the directions. My suggestion would be, EX...built basic truck frame through step "##" and then continue from here to finish the semi truck. On-line directions had you build extra and then take some parts off that weren't needed. Overall, great product!
      Also, more remote control Lego kits in the store, would be awesome!

      tons of fun to build great activity to do with kids away from pc.
      the only reason we didn't give it 5 stars is because we think the crawler drives kinda slower then we would have liked.

            My 7yr old son used his birthday $ to buy this for himself. My 7yr old, my 9yr old & myself spent HOURS putting this together!! Some GREAT quality time spent together! Now that we have completed it, my 7yr old thinks "it's cool" & he took it to school for share day!! The only negative thing he said was, "it's really slow mom."

            It is pretty slow & could use more power.
