I was just thinking, does air get sucked into the three cylinders on the hood to prepare for Turbo Boost? It seems like it does when the cgi shows the internal workings during TB. If so, then how can KITT TB in normal mode?

GST uses his belly as a ramp so KITT can TB in normal mode. :wink:

Got admit is something that doesn't make sense. But then again a Shelby turning into a F-150 doen't make sense either:)

that picture is awesome! love it!

Attack does make sense. KITT goes faster when in that mode. Also looks cool.
4x4 Mode makes sense as well. Better for certain areas where a Mustang is not.

You know what'd be an awesome-looking Attack Mode?

Since I can't print out a picture for some reason, (What is it with this site, anyway?) How about a link to the source?
KITT: I walked right into that one, didn't I?
Michael: More like Turbo Boosted.

Not saying it doesn't make sense in that way. It's the physics of how the car changes that doesn't. Like when he changes we're does the blower go? Then changing into a pickup truck is just completley impossible. It's that sort of stuff that hurt the show.

Original KITT super pursuit was more believable. For off road He had a mode that would lift his suspension and give him traction.

But once again it's all the world of TV :D

Nanotechnology for the win!
KITT: Michael, your blood alcohol level is far too high to allow you to take the wheel.
MIKE: That’s fine. I don’t wanna drive anyway. I want a burger. Take me to a drive-thru.

The Picture looks great. but the Design hummmmmmmm not very much. I always found the Pilot version more attractive. Always think the current Attack Mode push it a bit. Image :kitt:

I know i must be one of the only few who likes attack mode, I know its kind of over the top but that's what the whole knight rider legacy past and present is all about imo. :spmgo:

I do like the pilot attack mode better as well. It wasn't as radical of a change, and it didn't look like it belongs on a drag strip. I still like the idea of Attack Mode though. :mrgreen:

I prefer the original "attack mode" from the pilot, although, this "attack mode" has somewhat grown on me. I would also prefer that the only time that K.I.3.T. were to "transform", it would be only for the use of "attack mode" and no other "Ford vehicle transformation" (not saying that Ford has bad vehicles). But these Ford transformations take away, K.I.3.T.'s advance abilities as an individual car, but that's just my opinion......

I don't like attack mode or the transformation, but at least in the pilot it was more of a "super pursuit mode" and KITT didn't transform, but rather morphed. I was OK with the morphing and would much rather have that than the transformations.

I think you are talking about the Nano technology that was introduced in the Pilot. infact, there was a Topic about that some time ago.
Personaly, I love the nano change more than the Mechanical tranformation that we have in the series. Always thought it do give KITT this extra feeling of advanced car of the future thing.Image :kitt:

I think that budget restraints keep them from showing the nanotech transformations that we got in the movie.

Quite possibly. Although, they probably could have save a lot of money by not having KITT transform in the series. ;)
