Re: What kind of car is Kitt REALLY?

hmm isn't an automatic transmission doing the same thing as a manual, except automatically? That is to say, it still goes from 1st to 2nd etc., but the gears are switched automatically? So there doesn't seem to be anything illogical about manual backup. Just like gauges, the windshield is the main d...

Re: What kind of wacky transformation will we get next?

Well the thing is, both the police car and the attack mode are approximately the same mass as the Mustang. So that makes more sense than the van and the truck. Because nanotechnology is generally regarded as the manipulation of atoms and molecules, and to make more metal to convert to truck, you wou...

Re: Is it just me or are their too many commercials?

I checked out the DVD's and the original Knight Rider lasted 52 minutes long per episode. Welcome to the 2008 where television must plug as many things as possible. This happens during Lost also. I resorted to watching online for less commercial interruptions or dvd. I get it. I'll go to the Ford d...

Re: Kitt Modes: Wanna talk product placement?

Really, most average watcher like me can't afford a Shelby 500 KR. So here's your chance. Make a new attack mode or stealth mode based on the average mustang model. I couldn't afford it either, but I couldn't afford a car at all (I make minimum wage). My understanding, though, is that a normal Must...

Re: Making the show a real Knight Rider show.

KITT was top secret in TOS. Only a few insiders knew about it. You lost me with that comment? We had a similar reaction from Mikes ex-army buddy in the second ep to the any reaction in TOS. Yeah, but I agree with the original poster that it needs to be more consistent. If the transformation is supp...

I agree, that makes more sense.

Certainly, whatever car it transforms into should be roughly the same mass of the Ford Mustang.

Well in terms of believability, you shouldn't be able to see a laser beam unless it's going through dust. It is coherent light. Thus if you are off to the side, YOU SEE NOTHING. You can see the end of the laser generator light up, and then the target gets lit up, but you should not see a beam in bet...

you guys should know that those converter boxes do NOT output HDTV. They are fine for hooking up to an analog VCR, which can't record in HD, but they won't output HDTV. You see, if you're using an analog TV , it is not capable of displaying HDTV. It displays normal TV resolution, 400 lines or roughl...

Re: K.I.T.T. unable to catch red exotic car without attack mode?

At the beginning I was annoyed K.I.T.T. couldn't catch up to the red exotic european car without using "attack mode." The red car wasn't that far ahead. A Shelby GT500 KR can do 0-60 in 4.1 and the 1/4 in 11.92 (with drag radials). The car can probably top out (stock) at around 200 mph. S...

oh I just remembered something else...shouldn't KITT have been able to easily defeat the other car in the first race without going into attack mode? I know MKII told KITT to not go full throttle at first, but upon seeing that situation, he should have said "KITT, give me full speed". --Brian
