simple answer: YES!

KITT in normal mode is great. i don't like the attack mode and i don't like that there's one additional mode for every car in Ford's portfolio either.

the best thing would be to have just normal mode, get rid of transformations completely. (Knight to King's pawn did it and it was fantastic!)

A B S O L U T E L Y :!:

The normal mode looks great, big fan here.

I don't like attack mode either, doesn't matter which one. Both the pilot and the series version of attack mode are ugly.

This is pretty much a "yes, but" question for me. Yes, it looks better in normal mode, but it bugs me a great deal that it has zero customization, scanner notwithstanding. The Shelby's pretty and all and I've grown to even like it, but I still prefer KITT to be his own car. So, in that sense, the Attack Mode at least serves as a good change on occasion.

Normal mode is far better than attack mode, so I agree. Take out Attack mode and the transformations. Leave in Normal mode, glad they're not calling it Hero Mode anymore, and KITT's ability to change color and small details. I thought the pink stripe was cute. >_> Knight of the Living Dead is my daughter's favorite episode.

I'm waiting for the C button to make an appearance in a mission rather than as a Halloween costume so that MK can use the 'ejector seat' to launch himself to the top of a building, or better, to crash through a window

I agree 100%. Normal mode is awsome and the pilot attack mode was OK but I do not like the series attack mode at all. It can never be seen again for al I care.

i prefer normal KITT so much better than the series attack mode but i must say i did like the pilots attack mode allot.

Normal mode should have black wheels that would be cool

My preference, in order?
Pilot Movie "Pursuit Mode" (I call it that because calling it "Attack Mode" makes no sense IMO given that all it's been shown to do is go faster) - Normal mode - Series "Attack Mode"

If they'd kept the Movie's version for the series Attack Mode, but with the redesigned rear and exposed thruster nozzles, it would've been way better IMO

I couldn't agree more! Attack mode is awful. It' s like a failed drag car!!! Normal mode, much better name than Hero mode, is really beautiful. I believe though that pursuit mode in the pilot was really good. Reminds me of SPM! Helps the car go much faster! I also think that first of all we must get rid of those terrible transformations! Changing color and shape, like in the pilot, pursuit mode or just another mustang just for cover imo shows hi tech but all these transformations are just rediculous!!!!
Hope to see Kitt like in pilot again!!

If the car in normal mode looked like the Attack mode from the pilot but without that silly looking double spoiler I would be more than happy with the car.

To be honest I see no reason to call that an attack mode! If anything is much more reminiscent of the SuperSpeed mode the TOS had in the latter seasons, it should only come up when KITT needs that extra burst of speed and that's all...

The KITT mustang looks a lot better than the original Trans Am. The attack mode is silly and I don't know what they were thinking when they created it. Even the Andron version looked dumb but rather than tone it down or eliminate it, GST went in the opposite direction and made it look ridiculous. Even though the scanner is in a higher position it works b/c its fluid and looks more like blood flowing through a heart as opposed to an eye. The problem isn't the car at all or even the tech it uses. Its the rest of the show that stinks.

Normal Mode is infinitely better.

If they want an Attack Mode, make it the Normal Mode car plus the weapons KITT needed (i.e. normal mode car plus the missiles on the sides of the car when they want to launch missiles).

Normal mode is better I always thought attack mode was too "fast and the furious" for me. Normal mode if only we could get those rally stripes off KI3T would look so much better.
