As everyone knows the V1 is unique in its ability to recieve out the rear for great distances versus front reflected signals.

Combine that with arrows and a powerful unique defensive tool is created.

With a typical RD signal is picked up but only the seasoned can determine direction and that usually takes precious seconds of assessment.
And even then your never "sure".. Lots of road time wasted dropping to psl to assess or option B.. Run the risk and race on.

Then once the rear threat passes it's assumed all is clear and that the persisting signal is coming from the leo who just passed..... Surprise!

This video demonstrates the trap "to be a sucker" scenario.

Best thing about the arrows. Knowing which car is given off the false alert. As you pass the car, the arrows move from front to back. :)

Good vid Wind. The arrows are what made up my decision to get the V1 of the Redline. Incredible range without having a clue where the threat or threats is coming from is not useful in my opinion.

Incredible range is obviously great but seriously if we're talking a tie or a few seconds more..... More than that is gained big time by quick acquisition of the whereabouts of the enemy and correct evasive action.

Not much else is mentioned about driving pleasure from not having to hit the brakes or let off the gas over and over for foolish falses that that time to determine if benign or serious threat.

If we did a cannonball run race across country from point A to point B and if you got stopped by leo for speeding you were disqualified, I'm certain the V1/YaV1 runner would win hands down!

But yes life is not a race... Or is it?

I hate the uncertainty of not knowing for sure....

Some say they don't need them.... Yea well they don't need a Rd or CMs either if they don't speed!

Yea, the arrows really do make a huge difference. If I gun it through an intersection at high speeds and get a radar detection, it really helps knowing if I should try to get away (coming from the rear) or just take it cool and slow down (coming from ahead).
