Radar detector isnt any good when the cop sits and waits for you then points the gun at you

Ya, make sure you have a good security system on your truck. I had a Cobra like that and someone stole it out of my truck. Or, hide it.

shame you wasted 90$ on a paperweight. Should have bought a real detector not a fashion item.

they make very very effective laser jammers but laser is trigger controlled so detection is very difficult unless you pick up a skip off of a car infront of you.

Interesting you have Valentine 1 in your Mach and you chose a fashion statement for your truck. Valentine 1 is by far the best on the market should have gotten a V1 for the truck too if you need two. I move my V1 from vehicle to vehicle.

Yea cobras arent that good of a radar detector. They pick up many radar bands, most of them automatic doors. You should get an escort x50.

A few years back I had one that did all bands and laser but it was so sensitive that almost anything would set it off. I mean stuff like sliding doors in stores bank security systems etc.

so... why do you need this? It's not like your going to be setting any speed records in a Ranger.

flux capacitor mod is about equal to a supercharged 5.0 swap from what i hear. so a radar is a good idea.

I will hate as a matter of fact. He shouldnt be speeding, so therefor he is wasting his money. slow down unless your going 1000 miles driving 10 over the speed limit isnt going to amount to any significant amount of time.

Slow down and get there alive. Im sick of hearing about car crashes where some innocent person dies because some dumb *** was speeding and driving recklessly
