Funny Brickset's been reviewing some small Technic cars the last few days and here we've got a small Technic car! (Granted, completely different style.)

For some reason, I very like the #1 roof tile. Wasn't it used in System too?

I have this set! I have several small, Technic Formula One cars. This one looks great with the blue and white color scheme, bendable tubes, and small racing tires. The little stickers on the slope piece didn't age well, but it isn't a huge dealbreaker. I even managed to fit a Technic figure into the seat to drive the car sometimes. Such fond memories of this set and other tiny Technics of the 90s!

Huh, forgot I had this set. Though given how old I was when it was released I have a sneaking suspicion something with that much technic was someone else’s first
