Default The impressive Hi-Tech!!

Hi-tech cars if put together right are among the most accurate replicas out there, great cars.
I have had quite a few of them through the shop and given them a new lease on life 😆

Looking forward to this section in the forum.

Hi there, I'm a newbie to these kit cars. I've built and have some gen 1 mustangs and later GT500's. I may have an opportunity to get a hold of a HI-Tech roller car and parts. I've read and I am learning about the difference between kits. I haven't looked at it yet but I am going to and just wanting any input from the community on Hi-Tech.
Thanks,
Mark

Be careful! Take an exhaustive inventory of parts and identify any missing parts before buying it. These cars are really old and parts availability would be a concern. Anything you can't find will have to be fabricated.

I may add that there are few things that cannot be purchased from many resources. HiTech was a great car and parts not hard except the critical stuff which can still be purchased. Ultimately you will be fine, just don't overpay as its always costly when building a car and they are always missing something.

Critical Parts, I would ask Craig, I would guess suspension related and maybe rear end, most everything can be swapped with 4000/6000 series and there will be plenty of help here on this forum if you start your own thread.

I would rather build a HiTech and have to look for stuff than build say "XXX" and have everything available mostly from China sources.

Yes "XXX" can be an assortment of companies however did want to spark another thread about quality cars etc....

Is it rolling, a fair price
Does it have a MCO (Manufacturers certificate of origin) that can be transferred? This being the most important.

Finally, perhaps a stand alone thread of your own is best.
