Gee ozikool, thats kinda vauge. :lol:
But thats quite alright, because to be honest, you won't have to drive the car everyday. I will.
And I think it will be awesome! :good:

Of course we are all entitled to our own opinion. (I feel the same way about the series Attack Mode.)
No offense is ever taken. :)


Yeah :D Well at least the whole is good

[quote="taoworm2323"]Original (series) attack mode concept art :good:
Image

What bothers me just a little bit is the side skirts. Is this suppose to be a picture of KITT in mid transformation? Are they mini break sails? What I agree with the current series transformation is KITT definitely looks like a more aggressive car compared to this one. But what I love about this concept is the spoiler and rear extensions. The front under skirt looks nice, but the collapsable hydroblower I can do without. To me, KITT shouldn't even need blowers for air intake, but I'd rather stay with the current air intakes........damn, I love that spoiler and rear extensions!

On the flip side, this concept would be more dazzling to see in reality just because the mechanics for basic transformation is feasible. ..........geez, that spoiler and rear extensions is @&^# sweet!

Hi KnightInstinct.
Yes the side skirts are 'airbrakes', but they don't deploy until the car needs to be stopped.
In the animation EVERYTHING deploys, but in real life everything deploys EXCEPT the side skirt brakes (until needed that is).

And I have to agree with you too, the spoiler and the rear look badass! :twisted: :wink:
And I LOVE the front end as well.

that transformation process is realistic doesn't need cgi
that is much better than the current one
what concerns me is that can it trnsform while moving?
that was the issue with KI2t
this is somethinig i found in imdb

You never see a long shot of KITT changing into Super Pursuit Mode, since KITT is not moving at all. A shell of KITT's body was used when filming the transition to Super Pursuit Mode, since large hydraulic rams were needed to articulate the body panels, and there was no room for an engine or running gear in the car.


here is the link http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083437/trivia

Yeah, it will be able to transform while moving.

Will you beat Jay Ohrberg to the finish line with your project? lol, I know, it's going to be a process.

Jay Ohrberg is building a Knight 3000?
Really?
I'll beat him to it! :twisted:

Is he building the same style KI3T like attack mode or normal mode or something diffrent?

No, he's building a new Super Pursuit Mode KITT, back in the original series they were apparently more limited (be it technologically or budget) and yeah the car that transformed wasn't drivable, probably one reason we always had the same, recycled shots for it as well except for one or two episodes where it was used at night (which looked cool), of course again probably also a budget issue.

Yeah, it's a shame that Jay is still not making the SPM mode functional.
The 3 youtube links I posted are a french dude who made the SPM functional. It is along these same lines that the Knight 3000 will be able to venture into Attack Mode.
You would think with the tech available today that Jay would have been able to do that.

So the side skirts and a kind of pseudo EBS? Wasn't sure at first but I'm guessing this is the desired effect yeah? anyways cant wait to see it bro, looks like its gonna be bad-ass! :good:

Me likey. :D If the creator of this Attack mode of Kitt wouldn't mind, I would like to sand-blast this on a peice of glass or even do a stain glass picture of it. This is one awesome looking ride and I wouldn't mind having one myself.....

Like weeeezl said the side skirts would work like EBS but if they were the other way around they would make the car get some grip when its going fast

hey taoworm based on this pix

are you going to chop the roof to 2 inches and remove the small window near the backseat
it will be a hardwork to do those roof on a mustang

The small window will not be removed,no.
Yes, 2 inches will be removed from the mustang.

Is it just me or did no one point out that this concept is also using "tweels" in it? Tweels for those that don't know are high performance airless tires. Check out the video below.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOSAQjCbXZE&feature=related

Interesting stuff but I wonder how they hold up under intense stuntwork?

Jay Ohrberg is in serious legal trouble with Warner Bros. I doubt he's going to be building much of anything until he gets things sorted out. As for the concept art of the Attack KITT, I don't understand the point of the front end transformations? The struts make the car look more like an insect, perhaps a beetle of some sort.

Very impressive, it actually looks dangerous and agressive, unlike the Attack Mode we actually got.
