    Purchase an R3 with the R4 due out soon?

    No decision to make here, the R4 is vaporware!!! Oh wait, Vortex apparently has one. Hard to argue with getting the R3 then grabbing an R4 when available if you're so inclined. I mean, you're on RDF. No such thing as too many RDs. Selling the R3 shouldn't be too challenging and might happen...

    What age group are radar owners mostly in?

    I know a few that do. Gf has been wanting LJs for a while now but her poor car doesn't need too much extra stress. Her next new one will likely need them.

    What age group are radar owners mostly in?

    At least the 69 in @Brainstorm69 refers to something other than age. He can't be more than a hair over 30 something. We have lots of 30 somethings around here. And some young guys who post excellent videos of traps and brainless wonders on the streets of AL and GA. You know who you are!

    [Poll] R4 vs DS1...which would you buy?

    With the supply chain disruption we may not see Theia R4 until 2023! By then maybe we can figure out how to unload cargo ships and find a few more truck drivers.

    [Poll] R4 vs DS1...which would you buy?

    There is on the RD @LouG uses! But seriously, thank you for that. This is another example of what I just posted the other day about learning from other RDF members.

    [Poll] R4 vs DS1...which would you buy?

    I like Uniden enough to be a customer yet I like Radenso more in spite of not yet being a customer. I trust Radenso more to make the display durable and like the open API. Edit: My mistake about open API- thanks to @Rags for pointing this outl @Deacon are expecting Uniden's implementation of...

    What age group are radar owners mostly in?

    That's a great point. I remember how slow 55 felt and how neither of my parents were having any of it. I also remember reading of many complaints by police officers about being used as tax collectors rather than protecting and serving. The older, wiser cops objected because they knew this...

    What age group are radar owners mostly in?

    Why yes, @Rags my favorite personally owned radar is a Stalker Dual Ka although I also own an old Decatur MV-724. To detect those I prefer the V1G2 and maybe the R7 or NRDSP for any K band. I've used a RD since I was a tweener. I think Dad bought the first one when he was about 23. A good old...

    DC Fluid Thanksgiving Mechanic Project

    Dad got Brembos and is much happier. Also, Michelin tires are helpful. He tried HanCrooks. Never could get them balanced well and treadwear wasn't close to what was promised.

    DC Fluid Thanksgiving Mechanic Project

    My Dad considered an "Eco"boost but heard one too many people who owned them say "I coulda had a V8." So his truck is a Coyote. He's seen zero bullshit out of the motor in 131K miles. Brakes are undersized but what else is new especially from Ford. I hate babysitting Ford or any other OEM. Had...

    What would you do?

    Ridiculously low speed limits set that way for the purpose of revenue generation is the root cause of all the distracted driving. When they make it so boringly easy and waste so much of your time the natural tendency is to multitask. Safety nazis tell us speed is the cause of everything unless...

    What would you do?

    This is unfortunate but true. A base Camry's competence might surprise you. Especially a newer one. Just remember the brakes are only good for one hard stop. If you don't let them cool after that your day could go badly. That certainly applies to the V6 models as well. Want better brakes for...

    What would you do?

    Was it Vortex, Rags, or Obeer who suggested that it's wise not to make decisions based on a single test? Maybe it was Brainstorm69 or some other senior RDF member? I've learned things about CMs from all those guys and many others around here. The R4 does look interesting and might have the...

    What would you do?

    @420smoke, members helping other members is one of the great things about RDF! I just ripped from Houston to Nashville at decent speed with the exception of a bad motorcycle crash on I-10 around Vidor. We spanked our monkeys for about 2 hours on the I-10 parking lot for that one. But I cruised...

    What would you do?

    I hope you've sent a case of beer to @OBeerWANKenobi , a nice cash offering to the others, and a finder's fee to @RadarScout. You post some great stuff so I don't want you to be in jeopardy!
