    Re: Radar detectors/jammers revisited...

    I had a Escort Passport SR7 plus laser shifter installed in my last car and it saved me from tickets many times. I was thinking about installing it in the V, but I am not sure I want to go through all of that trouble.

    Would anybody be interested in buying it? PM me if so.

    Sure wish that I would have known about yours a few months ago. I'm surprised that you removed it from the car. Mine will be staying put when I sell the car.

    You're right, it is a lot of work but it's pretty sweet once you are done. Not only unnoticeable to Johnny Law, but it might save a broken window, too.

    It's not very difficult to install. I am just being lazy. You have to run three sensor wires from the front bumper to under your steering column, and one sensor wire from the rear license plate to the brain under the steering column. You provide the brain with power and ground (via fusebox), mount the display wherever and plug into brain, mount mute button and plug into brain, mount the optional extra loud speaker I have and provide that with power and ground.

    It's about the same difficuly as an amp install, but I just don't feel like doing it. I will be more mod happy once I have the V for a while, but I just got it and am still enjoying it in stock form. I do want to mod the exhaust and intake though.

    I don't understand how most of us here paid a lot for their V and yet people are concerned about spending $400 for the best detector you can buy...

    People have critisized me for buying a $1500 radar system, but It has more than paid for itself in the tickets I have been saved from. The laser shifters work really well! I love driving by speed traps and looking at the confused look on a cops face because he has no idea why his laser gun is not working right.

    Re: Radar detectors/jammers revisited...

    I have read this entire thread from beginning to end and I must have missed the part where someone documented the single most important element in the fight against traffic tickets. A $50, $100, $250, $400, or ever $2000 radar detector will work best when you have one thing!!!! BEAR BAIT... I do not want to jinx myself and say how many tickets I have avoided in the past 25 years using radar detectors, but I will say that I have been far more successful at avoiding tickets just by following someone that wants (and deserves) the ticket a little more than myself. When the escort radar detector first came out I ran around all over Texas thinking that I was invisible only to find myself paying tickets. Now that I am older and hopefully wiser even when I feel the need for extreme speed, I only push it as fast at the first car will let me. I just finished a 2800 mile trip over the holiday weekend with my cordless passport on the visor of my "V" with johnny law posted at every hiding spot available on highway 95 and using my "BEAR BAIT" method, I saw no less than 7 speeding tickets being issued to the first car in the pack. I know that everyone knows this but I thought that it was woth mention. My Best, Rob

    Rob, I used a Cobra Trapshooter ll back in 1986 with an "analog" strength indicator using a needle. Very similar to the first Escort.

    Use a V1 for the last 10 years and could not be happier. Regardless of detector as you mentioned your eyes and using bait and laying about 1/4 mile back is the right game in being total ticketless.

    Using a detector, jammer(actually jams computer-not the radar), and toning down of the chrome works majic as sometimes the alertness levels fail as we get older.

    Take care,

    Norm
