My car is fast enough for me. I dont need to buy anything else for it. Just got another ticket (90/55) This ones gonna sting. So I think Im through with mods. So guess this might just be my last post. If I keep coming to this website I'll be tempted to buy more stuff.

Thanks moron, my insurance rates just went up because of your ticket!!! :D J/K, I'm just messing with ya!

I know my first ticket ended my thoughts of a new exhaust this year, but it also drastically changed my driving habits for the better too.

I have a Valentine One & an Escort 8500 radar systems. The Valentine does a great job on the highway but around town it falses alot, even with it on it's most filtered mode. The Escort falses alot less but doesn't quite have the range of my V1. Some units cost alot, especially the V1, but you know that your going to speed, so do yourself a favor & just buy one. It'll more than likely pay for itself by saving your azz. Tickets & insurance increases.....or 1 radar. Your choice.....or you can just slow down...but just how long do you think that'll last?

two words RADAR-DETECTOR
That looks like one hyphenated word to me rather than two!!! :D

I'm planning on getting one but I'm trying to reform my driving habits before I do. Radar detectors even the best ones can detect instant on radar. But I do plan on purchasing the Passport 8500, when though, all depends on how much of the ticket I have to pay!!!

I would highly recommend a good radar detector. Mine saved me on numerous occasions. Just got back from Las Vegas to check out some property and no problems. Radar Dectector gave me plenty of warning to slow down. I love it!

JerryJ, damn your car lQQks sweet! I have the same color & would love to install the front lip. But I'm worried that I would end up "pushing the snow" because the front end is already low enough for me. How is it for you???? Plus I have the same grill as you & man...I just can't say enough about how great it all looks!
PEACE!

45 words, 2 contractions, 5 periods, & 3 commas at the end for good measure:

I usually see the cops a mile away. Its like a sense I have. This time it surprised me and he got me good. Maybe if I have any money left I'll invest in a good radar detector. Maybe they'll let me take defensive driving.,,,

FastAzzRide, Thanks for the compliments! I don't have to worry about the snow where I live so it's not an issue for me. So far I haven't scrape around here but I would worry in your case if the snow got as high as the lip.

Get the V1 it saves me daily, you can see how many cops and which direction the signal is coming from. A friend of mine has a Z06 and his forum swear by the V1, those guys have some great stories.

I hear radar detectors dont work with lasers, is that true?
all detectors made as of now by any reputable company have it, both my cordless Beltronics and my talking Cobra have it....

but nothing will help with the "instant on" shit that cops are using now.

For those who don't know, "instant on" radar is radar that a cop can turn on instantly, as you're passing him and instantly grabs your speed. In these situations your eyes will be your best defense against getting caught; basically keep a look out for state troopers, marked Crown Vics/Impalas/Z28's/Caprice's and whatever else the cops roll around with in your areas.

Also, any of the above mentioned cars not marked, but with tinted windows, hubcaps, dual exhausts or light packages will clearly give themselves away...

IMO, radar detectors are great as "warning signals" but to rely on them SOLELY as your defensive mechanism is foolish.

I have a couple of friends who jammers and they have not had a ticket after purchasing, probably my next mod. You install them and they cant be seen they send out a 00 mph reading to the cop which is a normal occurrence.

so you mean to tell me that you're willing to drop $500 on a jammer that in order for you to verify it's operation is to rip past a cop doing 100+mph??

good luck buddy, even if it works I still wouldn't want to be the guinea pig to try that crazy stunt!!!

Around my way, anything 30 over the speed limit is grounds for immediate arrest.
