Power Racing Build

Akron Makerspace

Take a child's toy, put it on a metal chassis with real tires and make it go 30mph (yes please)! Engineering, technology, diversity, and above all imagination are at the core of what we represent. We have one current car that raced last year that is undergoing an over haul and a new car in the works. Do you want to learn about electronics, fabrication, engineering and fabrication? All sorts of disciplines are needed when building a tiny electric car. Stop by and join the team or bring your knowledge and share. You could also help us knock out just a small part, it all helps. Team Captain Warren will be leading the charge as we progress into the 2018 race season.
