I do a lot of research before buying a Lego set to ensure I'm getting the most for my money, and this is one of the best Technic sets to get if you don't want to splurge for one of the more expensive ones, ESPECIALLY if you have very few other Technic sets and parts. The most attractive feature is the ability to shift gears which, although mostly aesthetic in the model, means that it comes with a set of parts specifically designed for this purpose. With a bit of creativity, you can get a lot of versatility out of this set to add to your LEGO creations.

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).

      My son loves this race car. He is big into gears, pistons, and motors. This product fit the bill. Kept him busy, focused, and entertained.

              Comments about LEGO Technic Race Kart (42048):

              This was a fun build, with the engine and transmission being my favorite parts. The transmission has a really neat way of allowing one to change gears (shown below). I wish this had fewer stickers, but that problem is shared with most sets. The only qualm I have with the technical parts is the steering. It's loose and wide, to be blunt. However, as I have no better ideas, it'll have to do for now. The wide radius makes playing with it less fun, but it doesn't affect the car's looks, which are sublime. It'll be a fine addition to my Lego mantel.

              Bought this for our 7 year old son who loves building Legos. This is his first Technic Lego. He loves how the parts move. It's also great for developing fine Motor skills with the tiny parts. A great product.

              For people like me who like motor sports in general I think this is a interesting car, reminds the real Kart. Very good choice of colors and as always the wonderful details of the engineers of Lego, as the engine and the car's gearbox. Congratulations.
