Built this with my son a couple of years back and was very disappointed on how poorly it went together,had to modify parts to make them fit/move freely,the end result was the engine didn't move as it should and the motor then failed.

Just hope they have improved the quality of the kit over the last couple of years.

They have changed the design in the last 2 years - this one has illuminating spark plugs and ignition sounds

The one we built had light up plugs and sound.

Maybe it was less than 2 years ago.

Very same thoughts, the quality is shocking.

Same here, it doesn't run freely enough to move in any kind of decent motion... And it's loud!

Quite interesting but a pain in the **** to get the LEDs "firing" at the correct moment.

Interesting enough for £20 but not worth the RRP. (Not voting either way)

also available at TK Maxx for the same price

Seriously, complaints about a £20 engine, if it worked great for that much cars would be £100 new ;) surely everybody should get used to the idea from day 1 that engines always go wrong ;)

nonsense, cold
#18
Such a shame they have sold out.

But a good price des[pite them having none left.

Voted HOT, HOT, HOT! before someone goes and EXPIRES this deal

If you have trouble with the pistons sticking on this when they move, then just put a little bit of cooking oil around them and they will work a lot easier.
I had to use a small modelling file to remove some of the burrs, but after that it went together quite well and the lubrication to the pistons kept the firing order in sync.
