    After reading here for a while, I think I’m going to get alp with net radar dsp. Question I got are, how many sensors does a gt350 need and which ones, should u invest in the rear set up for both radar and parking aid. Also any pics out there of gt350 sensors mounted in grill.

    Cheers

    Really depends on where you live/drive. What province are you in?

    Nothing too hard in the Okanagan. I'm from Kelowna! Worst I've ever encountered is Ultralyte. I know there are Laser Ally in the area, but I've never encountered it. You'll only need front protection to start - 2 standard heads and a TX would be ideal!

    That’ll save some only doing the front.

    Hey @Gofast sorry no one has replied yet. I dont know your area too well, but it seems @System does and as long as his info is accurate you should be fine with 3 Rx sensors.
    If you are concerned about Dragon Eye Lidars you may want to incorporate a Tx in your set-up, but saying that even against those, properly set-up, 3 Rx's sensors will still keep you comfortably safe.
    For best performance you will want the sensors flush with the "shelf" of your bumper.
    First picture will be with a Tx sensor incorporated, and the second picture would be if going with 3 Rx's.
    Do you "need" rear protection?. Thats all up to you. In a rocket like that, i sure as heck would want it lol
    Anything else, feel free to ask

    Is it recommended to have the slight v shape when using two Rx and one Tx? And not all 3 straight across horizontally?

    Just curious as I'm researching setups.

    It can have a slight V or not either way. Whatever makes sense for the specific install.

    I have 2 RX at each bottom corner of my plate and the TX at the top of my grille 25" off the ground. JTG against DE and TSX. Q50 so similar sized car.
