The guys at Lego have done a great job getting so much working detail into such a small kit. It has front wishbone supsension, back suspension, chunky tyres, working steering, working piston, and a bit of drive chain (you can never have enough chain!).
It looks great on my desk at work, and the suspension handles driving over my keyboard, books and all other manner of rough terrain with ease!

Another great Technic kit from Lego. This one makes two models - a buggy and a quadbike, both with clear instructions. The quadbike is the better detailed model and challenging enough for children of all ages without being too complex to build. Priced at £17.99 when I bought it, this represents great value for money.

The Quad Bike is Amazing!!. I enjoyed it alot when I built it and I enjoy to play with it as well. The bike has different moving parts (front and rear dampers, independent front suspension, transmission chain, motor with piston).
This is my first lego of the Technic series and I was fascinated. It was challenging to build it.
Defenitely I will buy it again.

Bought this for myself as a Birthday pressie.
Took about 2 hours to complete at a leisurely pace.
It's a cracking little kit with decent attention to detail. Nothing too complicated or fiddly required. If you're looking to dabble with Lego Technic, but don't want to spend a lot of money this is a really great place to start.

Our son got this for his 9th birthday; an accomplished Lego City and Lego Creator builder, he struggled with the complexity of the build in places. There are a few points where it is difficult to line up several pieces and press them together, however with practice I'm sure he'll master the technique.
As mentioned by other reviews, the Quad is certainly the better of the two builds. Once complete, the model has working suspension and steering, and the chain-driven engine turns over when moved.
The roadster is a build of similar complexity, however upon completion we discovered that the rear wheels didn't turn which limited the usefulness of the completed model. When I dismantled the model, however, I discovered that one piece had been fitted the wrong way around, which was probably the reason. Sure enough, after refitting the part the rear wheel moved freely. Care should be taken when assembling that the axles turn before continuing.
Overall, good value and enough to keep most lego fans (and their parents) entertained and out of trouble :)

This lego kept my boyfriend (age 26...) happy for hours, hardly heard a peep from him. I judge lego by how complicated it is and therefore how long he will be quiet for. There are other designs for this kit available online, once he found those I got to read a whole book without interruption! Worth every penny!

I purchased this back in October 2013 when my son was 9 years old. He made it himself and still NOW absolutely loves it. He takes it with him whenever we go on a short or long break/holiday.
Just now I was looking for another one for his friend who is into construction toys and he too loves this Quad Bike. I nearly had a heart attack looking at how high the price has gone.
Back then I was very new to Technic Lego (still am technically) and was trying to justify spending £14 on this Quad Bike (9392) and £13 on a Race Car (42011)... Thank God I bought them!
It is a robust Quad Bike and everyone who sees it, loves it. Impressive indeed!
