Together the three boys at our house (father and two sons) read the instructions and built, wondering the entire time if the gears actually worked or if they were just decoration. When they turned it on they were pleased to see the gears turning as the car moved. The gears do operate, but are not integral to the car's movement.

The gears can be used or turned off (they can be kind of loud). The remote control car uses an infrared laser instead of an antenna. It also has the ability to use different channels so different cars can operate at the same time. After using the directions to build the two models, our group decided to construct a new remote control vehicle that is 100% imagination based.
