Got this set 50% off at my Target right after it opened in early 2005.

I really like this pull back motor function.
LEGO should have used this function more.

My one just kept veering to the left! Had a lot of fun with the LEGO Racers line when I was a kid!

I know I had a few sets from this era of Racers, and played with the pullback motor so much, I stripped out both of them. I'm still holding out for Lego re-releasing Tiny Turbos with the pullback motor/chassis piece introduced in the same-scale Shell promos.

Is this supposed to be a car? To me, it looks more like a souped up riding lawnmower.
