Re: NBC READ THIS -- 83% say you should modify dashboard

To be fair, I can virtually guarantee that 82.9% of those votes were cast before we saw the special effects that have brought KITT to life so well in the premiere. True. Good point. I agree they have done a good job with the series! However...I just don't feel comfortable with analog gauges being t...

Re: About turbo boost in new episode

I say the Pickup truck transformation should stay since- How about if there was episode when KITT & Michael have to go off roading, and you know in real life a Mustang can not off-roading. [...] People that are not liking the new series just THINK about WHAT a 2 wheel drive vechicles disadvanta...

Re: About Transformation in the new episode

I was talking about this to my dad...I mentioned that, nanotechnology can manipulate atoms but it doesn't seem plausible to be able to take atoms from the air, a gas which is much less dense than metal, and convert them to metal to make a truck. It would involve not only the position of the atoms, b...

Re: Official Online Premier Thread (aka Pilot is UP on Amazon!)

As for the car, I wasn't happy when I saw those analog gauges. Yes, I know the windshield graphics make up for that, but I still don't think they have any place on the most advanced supercar on the road, whether it would be redundant with the windshield graphics or not. I COULD NOT AGREE WITH THIS ...

Re: NBC back on iTunes

They do have the current Knight Rider series on iTunes and in HD!!! :-) it is free :-)

You have to have iTunes 8.0 to get the HD.

if you "buy" the HD version it also gives you the normal tv resolution version. :)

Re: Knight Rider Pilot DVD free with purchase

It should be a blue ray disc too...I guess that will come out in the future :)

Was it presented in HDTV on broadcast? I've been having trouble getting broadcast signals from my room, and our DirecTV and cable hookups here are standard definition.

You guys can't watch it at www.nbc.com/knightrider? click "video" then "full episodes"????

Well there is also a technology being developed called an ultracapacitor, which stores charge in the same way a normal capacitor does, which allows for VERY fast charging (seconds), and yet has equal/more storage than a battery. It has a lot of potential but is a "just over the horizon" th...

well, the only other two references are "solar powered hybrid engine" in one of the promos and we know he uses gasoline for fuel and KI3T also said "my system is mostly solar powered"

Re: Does the new KITT 2008 has a jet sound?

electric engines in cars like the Tesla are limited by their distance they can travel... sure in part this is because of the batteries. It is entirely the batteries.

Re: Does the new KITT 2008 has a jet sound?

I don't agree with you Seeker, you see... I would not call a petrol engine much less efficient than an electic engine. You wouldn't? Tesla's AC Propulsion (m) electric motor is 92% efficient according to Tesla Motors. Isn't a gasoline engine usually 40% or less? I said it weighs 70 lbs before, I wa...

Re: Does the new KITT 2008 has a jet sound?

As I mentioned earlier, Tesla has had to downgrade the 0-60 time to 5.7 seconds due to problems with getting the transmission they had to work reliably without breaking due to how an electric engine works with always providing 100% maximum torque. Plus the mileage on a charge has been reduced, I th...

For one KI3T is not a hybrid as far as I know? It is more of a Kinetic design more than anything as KI3T does not have an electro motor (complicated is not always best), KI3T recycles the motion and heat he produces giving him superior power and mileage... in theory. "SOLAR POWERED HYBRID ENGI...

Your comment on 'If Ford was smart...' is amusing. Every auto manufacturer is researching hybrids that get more mileage on electric-only power.

POLL: SHOULD NBC MODIFY THE DASHBOARD

I think NBC should PHYSICALLY modify the dashboard, as in, replace it with digital gauges etc. If it just has a big LCD screen where the gauges would be, and then small analog gauges underneath as backup, that would be acceptable. But it needs to be physically modified and it has to look different t...

Re: Does the new KITT 2008 has a jet sound?

Well the proper way for it to sound would be like a Toyota Prius as KI3T is a hybrid. So it should be quiet unless going at high speeds or long distances, when the gasoline engine is activated to be used as a generator for the electric motor. In fact there should be scenes in the new series where KI...
