    Last weekend, my brother gave me his Escort Redline as he no longer had a use for it (He got a truck that can go 80mph with a tail wind down a hill :D). I don't speed very often, usually +10PSL at most, but this morning I did decide to open up a little and ended up north of +20PSL with an older Mustang (03-04 probably) by my side. Suddenly, Ka starts singing urgently, as if the threat was close, so I slammed on my brakes to +9PSL (cops here tend to follow the rule of, 9 you're fine 10 you're mine!) as it's still going off. The Mustang either had his own detector, or was smart and realized what I was doing :D. About 1000ft down the road was a cop sitting in a gas station who probably just turned his radar on. Suddenly I'm very happy I had the detector installed last week :)

    The Redline Is still a top notch detector! Mine has saved my @ss many more times than I can count! I have no intention of getting rid of it,even though my R1 is also kicking @ss every day for me!

    Sometimes you're the bug, sometimes you're the windshield!

    Time to buy your brother some beers!
