Burn his house down. I’ll post your bail. Better yet, I will testify you were on my boat all week.
None. It unplugs/un-mounts in a few seconds. Having gone from the Max ci to the 360, it is the best portable alternative, with almost all the same features.
Ummm, does that lower indicated speed affect your odometer? I mean if you are driving an indicated 60MPH (but it's really 58), does your odometer measure a precise one mile in one minute? Where I'm going with this is the government has imposed standards on manufacturers for reporting the actual mileage on the odometer.
Are you guys freakn Nuts ?
I can see the investment for the cannonball run but driving to work??
even the cannonball run they have spotters up front….. I’m all for speeding and I have the tickets to prove it but I’m not spending that money to save 20 minutes
Wow! I can get an hour with a chick on the bikini thread for that!
And hopefully you don’t get a speeding ticket for being too quick
At my age! I can get a full hour no problem. Includes about 5 trips to the pisser, and a nap.
Almost 70 posts in one day about speeding!
I guess I should just apologize right now to all of you, I’m the guy in the right lane doing 3-5 over that you are all passing, causing you to get those tickets. lol.
I have spent money on a dash cam though, wouldn’t be without it.
When I was driving every week from Indy to Michigan and back every week. I saw all kinds of crazy shit…. So I said I need to get a dash cam…… got it and never saw a thing after that
Do you wear a hat, cause my buddy always says its the old guy in a hat driving a champagne Buick 70s wagon that farks up the traffic.
Wouldn’t be without a hat either!
Wish I could say the same. It’s constant..
Just a few weeks ago..on the way home from dinner, I’m at speed, 30ish and have a right turn green arrow. Guy decides to pull a u-turn into my path, realizes what he did and gooses it to shoot into a driveway to hurry out of my way.
Never saw the kid on a bike in the sidewalk.
No one hurt, thankfully
That is freaking nuts!
I spent $500 x2 on my Escort Max 360 detectors 6-7 years ago and they are still pretty close to being state of the art. $3500 is insane.
Certainly much better price tag then the Ci. I think this is the way to go. Thanks.
Cruise control is your friend!
I have a lead foot also, but if road conditions are good which even in the north is 95% of the time, so cruise is on any time I'm above the minimum set speed. Haven't had a ticket in 20 years.
Funny you say that. I drive my car locally with the cruise. The cruise has the ability to increment +1 or +5 and displays on the HUD, also brakes to slow. The truck is a different story.
Late 80's we had a Maxon in our Buick Grand National. Oregon was still running 55mph on the freeways, whereas Idaho had gone back to 65 or thereabouts. The missus was driving as we crossed over the border, and I told her that, if the detector goes off, throw out the anchor so as to throw off their radar gun. Later, the detector explodes with a full five bars and the horn wailing. What does she do? Clicks off the cruise control and lets the car coast. No biggie; it only cost us $300.
My Caddy CT6 is like that (plus with the self driving "SuperCruise"), so the adaptive cruise control is always on.
Haven’t used a radar detector in decades. Slowed down in my old age. On the highway I’ll go 5 to 10 miles over the speed limit.
No reason to hall balls when you’re only driving 10 minutes or two or three hours. Getting somewhere 1/2 hour or so earlier is no big deal for me.
Probably shouldn’t say this. My one and only ticket was in 1977. It was July 3 and almost midnight. I was 18 and three of my best friends in the car. There was a case of Michelob in the backseat. Three coolers in the trunk full of beer for the next day, water skiing.
The police officer said he had to do 110 to catch me. I got a ticket for 100 miles an hour and a speed contest ticket. My 1976 Impala showed 112 MPH. He made us empty the bottles of beer and never even looked in the trunk.
We got lucky because he was really mad at another driver that I was racing. Thar driver did not pull over, but kept on going. The officer had his license plate number and was just dying to go to his house and get him. That’s why he left us alone.
Still have my old radar detector.
In Missouri the magic number seems to be 13 MPH over the limit on the interstates. I set my adaptive cruise to 81 or 82 and never even get a second look.
