Directions to Build Day

OnQ Design Office: 24540 Clawiter Rd, Hayward CA. 

The car assembly is at the OnQ design offices, about 25 minutes from the Woodside & 280 exit.  While it is a bit of a drive, it allows us the work-space needed to stage things in advance and make the assembly process super easy for the racers and parents.  

If you are an enthusiastic parent want to build one yourself – Go Dude, run with it!  Here's the link to everything you need to know:
