I bought this set on its release day and I couldn’t be happier with it! Excellent write-up, and I couldn’t agree more about wishing that LEGO gave you some directions on how to test all of the gearing on such a complicated gear box before you start fully covering it up! When I got the motor installed and fired it up, nothing would move and I was not looking forward to taking apart so many pieces to find the mistake. Fortunately, I had simply forgotten to engage the upper/lower switch…once I flipped that, everything worked! Talk about a relief!
The bittersweet part - this model is so thorough and complete, that it includes paneling on the underside of the car, and panels that eventually conceal the transmission and almost all of the engine. Indeed, once you finish the model, you cannot marvel at the mechanics behind the paneling. So, take your time to build this set and really enjoy the mechanics inside it. That said, you can still get some glimpses of the shifting linkages for the transmission.
