We tried multiple times assuming we had made a mistake but this LEGO doesn’t build according to the instructions. We tried modified builds but I gave up. My young son eventually put something similar together but it is modified and far from the instructions. We’ve bought and put together a lot of LEGO and the occasional piece we have to make a slight modification to but this one take the cake for the LEGO requiring a lot of changes for it to actually look like the advertised product. Stay away from this one. We were planing on buying other cars from the Speed Champions set but there’s no way I will now.
