Re: Airwolf and Street Hawk, revisited

I haven't watched Streethawk in awhile but here's my two cents anyway. I don't really remember whether it came after Knight Rider or during it, but it was such an obvious copy. First we had a supercar, now a superbike. Both Jesse and Michael were former cops - though as I recall Jesse was one still....

Tire-size for 15" Turbocast wheels?

Not sure if this is the correct place to post it but as it borders replica-building so it's kind of 'creative', yes? Anyway, I just bought a set of 15" Turbocast wheels for my Trans Am and I was wondering what profile tires to wrap around them. What was the original tiresize for 82-83 Trans Am ...

Re: Season 4

I watched some season 4 episodes and I have to admit I do dislike the convertible mode. I for one like the Trans Am as T-Top or even hardtop better. The panoramic rear glass-hatch and sail B-pillars that convertible lacks are just so....well they belong in the car. Anyway, I always loved the driving...

Re: Season 4

Oh yeah, I have heard that they didn't apply the MBS untill later but it had slipped my mind. Well that gives some consolation and KITT didn't need to be rebuilt entirely, only repaired. But ghetto-crew adding new features to KITT - convertible and SPM- is too much (even with Bonnie's supervision).....

Re: Season 4

I didn't like much about the convertible mode since it could've been achieved to some extent with T-Tops or as Michael called it "sunroof". But as mentioned, it was't used during action scenes so it didn't bother me that much. SPM didn't bother me that much either but I disliked some scene...

Re: Was KITT ever in pursuit on cobblestone-streets?

It sounds like you need new shocks and suspension kit,after 20 years the shocks on these cars do have a tendancy to "give"! Shocks are kinda new (installed in 2007) and also front suspension was renewed that in 2007. Rear suspension I don't know, but I doubt it's all original. These cars ...

Was KITT ever in pursuit on cobblestone-streets?

The other day I once again cruised via Helsinki centre in my 3rd gen Trans Am and near the South Harbor (Esplanadi) there's quite many cobblestone-streets - and cruising on cobblestone is so horror with a Trans Am, the suspension doesn't give any relief, the car is shaking and rattling and the plast...

Have to go get a solder gun and solder. Man, haven't done that since middle school. Maybe I should buy two KITTs just in case....lol

I'm considering about bying a RC car like this. What material are the tires, rubber or plastic - in other words, can the car be driven outdoors (on asphalt) or is it suitable only for indoor use? I don't have so big of an apartment so potentially the walls could come in real fast, and the not so aes...

If you have airbags, like you seem to have one in the steering wheel, can you replace it? In Finland it's forbidden to remove safety equipment, such as airbags, from a car.

Hey, I recall sometime back I saw a screenshot of a regular Trans Am in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas -mod. It was a part of a Knight Rider mod, in the post with the screenshot read something like Trans Am that was made into KITT, or previous KITT. It was a black/gold '82 Trans Am (Gold skirts). Doe...

Re: Trailer reverse

Interesting. I always presumed they eased down the car in neutral, since it would break the transmission if the gear is on reverse and the wheels suddenly start rolling forward at 40 mph, no? I recall a car with an automatic transmission cannot be towed above a certain limit, due to the drive shaft ...

Re: Noticed on EBS Photo

And did you notice when the left rear fender EBS-flap open, so does half the gas tank lid....lol

And while the roof flap is open, is it like an open hatch or a thin layer of the roof (T-Tops)?

Why did they have to paint the insides of those flaps red... :roll: Why not just black. Would look cooler 8)
