This is one of my favorite Lego Technic sets. I have only built the A model so far. I did need a friend's help to build this huge set. It has a xl motor to run this machine, and you will need time to finish it. The clutch lowers the torque output, but without the clutch the motor will break.see moreof the reviewer's review
