Full Size Self-Driving Cars

In February 2018 we took some of the brightest engineers from across the world to Queensland, Australia to take part in the world’s first 72 Hour Challenge to build a fully autonomous full-scale car.  Five teams took part in the challenge and successfully adapted old Australian classic cars into remote-controlled and self-driving cars.

We are now able to bring to you the same kits that these teams used so that you too can build your own full-scale kit car.  Just send a message through the website or Facebook page and we will help you out!
