The set of the week

The fourth set of the week is… the lego 8048 buggy set. It is another fantastic set. I aslo own three (ok, I know there are too many…) of this delicious set. Why delicious, may you ask.

I could say a lot of things of this set but I think the best is that it has three shock absorbers! It has a complete suspension suspension on all the wheels. It also has a front steering axle. You can find a V4 engine in the rear of the buggy. The wheels are also find. Two small wheels, not very usefull, and the crown jewel: two medium wheels. Unfortunately it doesn´t features any power functions motor.

Here it is a video review of this set:

      Yes. Now the 8043 is a little bit expensive. If you want technic I’ll recomend you another set. The 8043 has less than one thousand pieces, becouse of the power functions motors.

      The unimog is a good set to start with. It includes 2000 pieces, pneumatics and power functions, all in the same box. Also the unimog is newer and cheaper.
