Re: When Will The Hot Wheels Super Elite 1/18 Kitt Be Releas

Too bad that the new KITT doesn't have the exact same nose as the Elite KARR does. With foglights that is

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

Do the directions explain how to replace the batteries- specifically show you the direction of the batteries? Yes, but even so, they still won't stay in still because just when I'm about to pop in battery #3, the spring at one end, which I think is a bit too long anyway, sends one or both of the fi...

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

Not yet, because I can't even tell if the batteries are in right. Is it a possible that somebody could post a video of how to put them in? Because despite having the manual, the batteries won't stay still and keep popping out

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

Hi RomanticKnight, I have seen your past post but I am not exactly sure what you mean. Do you actually mean that when you removed the batteries it is very difficult to replace the battery or that after you replaced the batteries the scanner light does not work for your KARR? If you can use fresh ba...

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

Forgive me if this is old news, but I gotta say that it seems like a real challenge to get batteries back in for the scanner to work. Does anybody else have this problem? The reason I ask this is because the scanner isn't working, and I checked the batteries and I'm not sure if the batteries are jus...

Re: DVD looping display of KITT voicebox display

I would love to see an app like that be done for Macs and PCs. I could have fun all day watching either KITT or KARR's voice modulators react to any sound that plays on my laptop. There was something similar called Phone Rider for iPhones, but now I'd like to a simple program like that react to the ...

Re: Did you like the square talking KITT or the 3 lines bett

I definitely liked the Season 2 voicebox the best. Somehow, IMO, the 3/4 Season voicebox appears downplayed and more obsolete looking than the Season 2. As a matter of fact, even though they had this idea for iPhones and Jupiter Electronics, I wish they'd let this interactive idea of KITT & KARR...

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

True as I was kinda referring to the ERTL version. But it would be nice if the scanner was a little more yellow as well. And I was saying since we see KARR in 2 different formats in the KITT VS KARR episode that why I say so. The only difference between the 2, of course, would be one is all jet blac...

Along with KITT, here's hoping they release KARR as well. And most importantly, among other things, let's hope they add the KARR license plate and make the flashing scanner YELLOW which ERTL failed to do. I can hardly wait to get my hands on those beauties. When HW releases KARR, it will make me wan...

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

It's just as well. God only knows why they can never get the nose right. Especially after seeing the real TV car over and over again. And this may have been asked many times before in other posts, but why did they change the nose of the car in Season 4? I didn't like that. KITT's nose was perfect be...

I was wondering when we'd get some new pics of the car. This is SA-WEEEEEET! God Bless the fact that this car has the Pontiac arrowhead logo etched in the bowling ball hubcaps. And more importantly, the whole caboodle is a far cry from the Ertl Joyride rendition. AKA Much much better than Joyride. O...

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

True if HW were to give us KITT in Super Pursuit Mode, i suppose it would be a safe bet that some details would be removed from the original KITT model to make space for the winglets to hide under. That's fine with me considering the thought of how delicate the parts to design would be. On the other...

It would be a bonus if the headlights pop-up. Not only that, Hot Wheels ought to scrape up KARR (KITT's evil twin for those who d...

Re: Jupiter Electronics KARR's Voicebox question

To answer some of your questions: Christian Forget makes his boards 12 volt compliant because most are being run for in-car applications. (Such as Knight Rider replicas) A headphone jack is unnecessary as well because audio wire is a cinch to hook up. But do be careful with the 12 volt hook up. Eve...

Re: Jupiter Electronics KARR's Voicebox question

Your best bet would be to contact the supplier directly. for 12v i'd get one of those plug packs and solder a socket to suit on the voicebox to plug it into. as for the box, it should by my reckoning have two wires for the power and two for the input signal. Would I find any of these plug packs I n...
