I was going to joke about there not being enough stickers, but actually, this is Racers, there's always room for more and I am displeased with all that retail space going to waste and remaining stickerless.

I think they were going for “big-rig racer,” but all i can see is a chopped and lowered pickup, sans bed.

There are some really nice pieces here, but I find it hard to build around the pull-back motor.

Not one of my favourite Racers sets, no (I think that honour belongs to "Hot Scorcher"), but I still like that Huwbot is focussing on these more and more.

is that technic assembly at the back a launch mechanism? or just scenery?

@Brickalili yes, it looks as if by twisting the grey knob both arms would rise in synchron. How well that works with cars having different heights? That's another question.

I have this set, it's currently sitting on display with my other Racers sets.

@SirZed It works well enough, since it grabs the car by the wheels iirc, making the vehicle height irrelevant.
