Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Thanks for posting that picture Dave, I couldn't find one quick enough. That is the air bag wheel, but I'm curious about his 90 since he says his wheel looks like mine (non-air bag) and after some research, I was finding conflicting information on 1990 models. If his 90 doesn't have all the air bag ...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Yep! That's my wheel. U bring good news and optimism-- maybe I don't have an airbag after all!! That'd be a relief. But I was told my car does have one. I need to figure out where that information came from. I was young when we bought the car (16), so I need to trace where that info originated from...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Yeah, you're right. I don't see how they would know or pick up on that. It's probably safe. My kitt is a '90 and I thought the car came with an airbag. The wheel looks like it has one, judging by the shape and size. And I was told by the previous owner that the car has one. Hmm... that'd be sweet i...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Thanks for this information, Kentucky KITT. This is very helpful! Using one hand with your palm to control the wheel when turning makes sense. When I watched that video, it was almost like the guy driving the car was trying his best to make the experience look bad! lol I like your dash a lot! Looks...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

I'll weigh in. I've been driving with a gullwing/dash since about 2002. I'm completely used to it though and consider myself a pro. I can drive my truck or my other Firebird, then get in the KITT car and it's no different to me. I don't experience what that guy does in the video. When I'm driving mi...

Re: 1/8th KR KITT

That is phenomenal!! I really like the attention to detail. The first thing I was looking for was the quarter panel to roof transition and you addressed that perfectly! That is a work of art! Great job all around!

Re: Kitt on Discovery Channel's Fast N' Loud Show

I sure did laugh a lot through that one. The tail light blackout should have been the easiest thing to do, but instead, they went way off the map with that one. I was literally shaking my head watching them try to add a piece of plexi by completely doing away with the factory tail lights. The end re...

Re: Marco / KittSuperCar a Recaster? You decide....

Being as I am an expert 3D modeler and CAD drafter working on complex natural gas pipeline systems and instrumentation, I can say for certain that the bumper shown in photos is definitely not what was initially modeled. Now, that doesn't mean that changes weren't made in the field once a person star...

In all the years I've been in this hobby, I could always tell bumpers apart (or any fiberglass part for that matter). I could usually spot and name a vendor's bumper without hesitation. These days? Not so much. There are so many out there now, that I have trouble knowing who made what anymore. I can...

I attended this year's Southern Knights Atlanta again and had a great time! Saw some familiar faces as well as quite a few new ones. I had a horrific experience on the way down when my hitch ball snapped off the truck at 70mph just south of Nasvhille, but the car was fine and I got the truck and tra...

Excellent! Can't wait to see what the new surprises are. I've always had a great time every year since this thing began. I still remember the very first one with maybe 4 cars and 10 people at a park. It has really grown into a spectacular weekend of meeting with the stars and checking out all the co...

Re: California prepares for self-driving cars

I'm kind of skeptical about this whole thing really. While it's a great idea for all these people who can't seem to drive a car without doing something else at the same time, I will never have the need for a car like that. I guess I'm just old fashioned. My hands are on the wheel, my feet on the ped...

First of all, I don't think there's any need to worry about this too much.

As far as I can tell, it's still very ...

Here is another closer view. This view is as close to the original shot as I can get.

There is no guard shack, but...
