RC Tracked Racer Challenge

RC Tracked Racer 42065 Thumb

Over the last two weeks I’ve had a chance to do something that I don’t often get to do – I took a completed set and actually played with it. The RC Tracked Racer is my first Technic set and it just happens to be a set with power functions, meaning that there is lots to do with it once the build is finished.

To see how the Tracked Racer performed as an RC toy I put it through a series of challenges. Note that these tests were performed on a closed circuit at busy office building and nearby park by a professional stunt driver a LEGO fan. In all seriousness though, some of these tests might damage your set, so I don’t particularly recommend them.

Review: 42065 RC Tracked Racer

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Technic theme. While the theme has existed longer than I have, this is my first ever Technic set. I went from being a LEGO fan into my dark ages without ever making the transition to the more advanced theme.

With that confession out of the way, here is my review of 42065 RC Tracked Racer.

I was initially interested in this set for one simple reason – the finished model looked like a heap of fun. Far too often I build a set and then stick it on a shelf or (more often these days) put it away in a cupboard until I can find room. The RC Tracked Racer on the other hand was something that had the potential for on-going enjoyment.
