As Technic Lego sets go, this is a fairly easy build. A teen or young adult experienced with Legos is looking at a 1-2 hour build time for the default model - I haven't personally built the alternate model.

As with most Technic sets, seating some of the shafts and snap-on parts can be rough on the pads of your fingers and may require the assistance of an adult or an older sibling, and applying the stickers can be a tricky affair. With that said, the brunt of the build is simple and intuitive, and as with virtually every other Lego set, it's incredibly fun to watch it slowly take form.

Once actually constructed, the basic kart design provides some of the expected features (a working steering wheel; a moving piston in the engine block), but what I hadn't expected was a working shift lever. It's a simple design, but it's incredibly neat, and also offers a look at how real-world transmissions work for curious young minds.

Overall, an excellent Lego set for the price with surprisingly cool features. I highly recommend it to anybody who enjoys Technic sets.

Fun to build but limited turning

The go kart was fun to build with my kids but playing with it is a little disappointing. The turning circle is huge.
I wish the technic models were to the same scale...Read complete review

The go kart was fun to build with my kids but playing with it is a little disappointing. The turning circle is huge.
I wish the technic models were to the same scale between each other or that there were a few standard scales. It would be more fun to play with other models including the old technic lego figure, which would not fit in this model (different scale - kart is made for a larger figure).

It can be dropped many times and wouldn't get any damage. And it's easy for my 4.5 yr old to hold on to when he wants to take it out of the house.

This is the first Technic set I've built and it was a pleasure from start to finish. I was a little concerned due to the number of small pieces but the instructions were extremely good. Thoroughly recommended.
