Re: Knight Rider like vehicle seen crusing around

Driving games like Gran Turismo are my thing, why they can't add KITT in that game Because that would be rather unfair to all the other GT cars, I'm guessing? After all...Extreme handling. Extreme speeds. Jumping over everything. Heh...oil slicks and smoke clouds. It just wouldn't be...sporting. We...

Re: What if.. KITT was another car?

How about Opel Calibra as KIFT or even as KITT 2.0 if Knight Rider lasted to the 1990's?

At least Calibra is a GM product like the Trans-Am :)

Re: Knight Rider like vehicle seen crusing around

Maybe the Youtube ad boycott is over then :)

Sort of interesting game because they use those 80's tv-series theme music even it may not be actually the genre I usually play. Driving games like Gran Turismo are my thing, why they can't add KITT in that game :P

Re: Is it time for a new primary category for technology?

Maybe we could discuss about Knight Rider technology becoming reality here in the general discussion area, maybe most interesting threads could be sticked on top for easy access? Talking about car magazines, just today I was re-reading some old 80's car magazines and started thinking how really far ...

Re: Kenner car toy part II

I don't have Kenner KITT either but by looking at the youtube videos, one possibility came in my mind concerning the drive belt. Probably the original one may have already perished and may have been replaced but is it routed correctly? Maybe a tensioner pulley is bypassed or something like that?

First, welcome to KRO from your neighbour country What kind of batteries Kenner KITT takes? Perhaps you could use new batteries for a while in another device and when they have lost their best power, then use them for KITT? Multimeter is good tool to check the voltage.

I remember reading that Glen A. Larson was considering KITT to be a Datsun 240Z, I guess similar body shape as Bionic Woman's car was? Mazda RX-7 would've been great choice as well as it has those popup headlights like Pontiac Trans-Am. Still, I'm happy that they decided to use 1982 Pontiac Trans-Am...

Re: Hotwheels KITT, need help

Usually 1/43 models are like that, without opening features because panel gaps are too visible in that little scale. Also, not sure if there still are small enough LED components to work in 1/43 scale for the scanner and even if there is, the price might be too expensive. Few exceptions that I know ...
