- For MAC users: mac can't open zip files with password, to open the instructions you will need an extra software (you will can find a lot of free software in internet to do it).
- Build this car is very hard, if you have never built a Lego Technic set, I recommend you to do it first. Doing that is not necessary but it will help you later when you built the Land-Rover
- I forgot add and advice in the page 172 about how to put correctly the parts. here you can see how to put it: the Axle Connector Smooth has two rounded sides and two flat sides. It is very important that the internal pins of the Driving Ring (6539) coincide with the flat faces of the axle connector
- I forgot too add a clutch's support in the instructions(the necessary parts are in the part list, this doesn't change)
To build it follow this pictures just after the page 154
- The instructions has been tested by a Lego Technic expert builders, if you can't built the car and you think the instructions are wrong, check your built twice before ask me.
- If you have problems with the gearbox try this. You can try two different solutions for this problem:
1 - Check the change levers(which connect the slider to the red ring) searching parts with too friction. Carefully move the levers sideways to get some extra space and also reduce friction. If this solution doesn't work try the second one.
2 - Add a third rubber band in the slider (page 228) to get some extra force in the change levers
Also you must think that the pieces are not perfect, so the gearbox are not 100% reliable, it should make good around the 90% of the speed changes
- There is a little mistake in the instructions in the IR receivers order, this is the correct order:
Behind the driver(in the right of the car) receiver in channel #2 with its wires. Range gearbox and 2dw/4wd selector.
In the center, receiver #1, Drive and brakes (it is well placed in the instructions)
In the left receiver #3, Main gearbox and steering
