Well? Do you? I'm talking about the Ferris Wheel, T-rex, or Bulldozer sets.

I'm interested in engineering, and I'd like to know how well the motors and things work.

From what I have heard, J, they're a big improvement on the 9v motors. There's actually a page comparing LEGO's motors, and the PF motors do very well. They run at low speed, but very high torque. An XL motor actually snapped a 12L axle, no gearing (the other end of the axle was fixed in place.) They're pretty much the motor of choice for the trial truck community, although the RC motors are also very good. Mind you, I don't own any of these, but I'm thinking of investing in some. Good luck!

I have a robotics 2.0 set. Is that related to what you're talking about?

Nay, I'm speaking of these babies.

And thanks for the info, Memory.
However, if I do go for what I'm thinking about, a remote, a receiver, 2 medium motors (I don't plan on heavy-duty MOCs... yet.), and a battery box, then I probably I won't be getting the new Indy or Castle any time soon. Crying or Very sad

But if I convince my parents that they're educational, I might be able to get them to help pay. Idea
Hmm, decisions, decisions...
