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

I was thinking more from the Knight Flight to Freedom angle. Lava reaches temperatures of 700° to 1250° Celsius, which is 2000°Fahrenheit.

Re: Garth Knight?

One things computers don't do well against is impact damage. The KI3K still sustains damage, but just 'heals' quickly. I can imagine if KI3K went head on with Goliath as KITT did, he'd take some pretty impressive damage and the impact may shut him down leaving the car heavily wounded (well, Goliath ...

Re: Does F.L.A.G. exist in this new series?

Yeah, Knight Industries is what made Wilton his fortune and the Knight Foundation was his legacy that took his money to fulfill his dream when he died thus creating FLAG to do so. I look forward to seeing how it's explained. I think the Knight Foundation exists in spirit only now. If not they wouldn...

Re: 1:18 Scale Diecast KITT (2008)!!!

Yeah, but a stock 2008 GT500KR is way closer to the KI3K than a stock 1982 Trans Am is to the KI2K. Attack mode is a different story, but KI3K is basically stock in his basic mode. I've been looking for this for a while. I have Shelby Collectibles 68 Eleanor and it's a very impressive piece for $30 ...

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

The Mustang comment kind of reminded me of the 2 preppy boys in the original Knight in Shinning Armor episode. They make the comment that Michael must be crazy to think he can escape them in that "domestic piece of junk" (or something to that effect). I think he would have talked trash, ma...

Re: HOW COME KNIGHT RIDER DIDN'T AIR TONIGHT?

It sucks but Tuners are in, RWD muscle cars are dead and buried. KR:TOS catered to car trends of it's day and the new show will do the same. I hate it more than anybody, but it could have been way worse and definitely wasn't as chessey as the Fake and the Fictitious film series. I just kept thinking...

The Roadhouse from 'Journey'

The roadhouse featured in this weeks episode, the Halfway House, is located in Canyon Country, CA. near Aqua Dulce. My Aunt has property in Aqua Dulce and I've eaten at that roadhouse many times over the years. I believe it was featured in the original series as well, if not I know for a fact that m...

Re: Liked Journey to the End of Knight much better

Ditto, pretty good and classic series feeling episode. Near the end when Shaun, Sarah & KI3K driving towards the camera in the desert with the theme playing was a nice touch. I'm not really digging the whole Bourne- Michael Knight subplot, but I'll give it time to play out. All in all I'm impres...

Re: Toys....?

Shelby Collectibles is making a 1:18 and 1:64 2008 GT500KR labeled as 'black on black' which I assume means a black car with black rally stripping (essentially KI3K without interior or light) so that may be the closest we'll get for a while. Add a LED kit and you'll be set. That'll be good enough fo...

Re: scanner upgrade

James Evans AKA Eatemup on the Knight Registries site built mine and has the specs. He used to host a site that had them up, but by prowling around the conversion sites you might be able to get those schematics. The light bar cost around $80 in parts and you'll need the control box from the JC Whitn...

Re: FRAUD?

No, and I agree the scanner placement did seem kinda lazy to me. When I first heard the Mustang would be used I thought we would at least get a custom front end. Attack mode is where the money is at for this car, but it seems they only modified in terms of what could be cheaply attached to the body....

Re: KARR

That's a nice car, Lost Knight. Is that indeed the next gen Mustang or just photoshop trickery like all the new Camaro derived Trans Am picks that have been floating around the net?

If so, forget a 3000 replica and put me on the list for one of those!

Re: FRAUD?

That hood is what makes the 500KR a 500KR (at least in appearance). KITT 3000 is not the first GT500KR.

Didn't the original script involve the 2000 being used as test fodder for the 4000 on a Foundation targeting range?

Re: Knight Rider 2010 - what could have been (a script review)

Yeah, 2010 tends to grow on you after a while. Seems like it was decided long ago that 2000 and 2010 suck, period the end, and are wholly without any redemption so it seems people just blindly follow suit. Are both perfect films and worthy successors to the KR franchise? Hell, no, but they did have ...

Re: Great New for KITT Mustang Replica Builders!

You can pretty much get anything aftermarket. My KI2K came into life a Formula (basically just the spoiler was correct, the rest was added). I figure over time more options will become available, especially if we get a show.
