It took hours to put together, and a casual observer might've witnessed me muttering things from time to time... "Grrr... dammit... c'mon, why won't it fit!" But I had a BALL!
LEGO is also selling another classic Technic kit: a forklift. I bought that, too, and put it together a week or so ago. You rotate the bar on the side and the lift goes up, the lift goes down, the lift goes up... oh yeah, it steers too, also by turning the "light" on top. Also no motors. Still, it's COOL! Thank you, LEGO™!
