Our customers say

LEGO Technic - Race Kart - 42048 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Set. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This would be a very good set for kids that are interested in LEGO. It looks just like the kart I autocross.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit! As fan of motorsport, I really enjoyed this kit. For the size/price value, I rate the kit as one of the best from Lego. The build is challenging and technical enough to keep things interesting and fun. As others have noted, the restricted steering somewhat limits playing with it, but the cool engine and transmission make up for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Technic Ever (so far) This set is SO GOOD!!! I love the working 2-speed gearbox and the front wheel drive! The working pistons in 1st gear are great! My tip is: use 1st gear as a kind of parking gear and use 2nd as performance because it can do spins and skids(if the owner makes it)! I actually don't think I'll change it to the Track Car 2 in 1 model because it is SO FUN TO DRIVE! I adore driving it around my living room. It's also like a Mercedes Benz S Class in some ways, because that car is so good it should cost more than it does, and this car is very similar. The only improvement it could have is 4 wheel drive to make the parking a bit easier and have less maneouvres in tight spaces, but apart from that, it is an exceptional Lego set, and a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little kit The kit takes a short amount of time for building, but for the money, few kits beat it. Not only is it fun to put together, but also the price paid makes sense for the time spent. Good work guys!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great in (almost) Every Way 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.
