I/O Hell, Aka Eastern N.C.
So, Jane and I were on our way home from Pa. after seeing Jason Bonham in concert. We were just a little north of the Chesapeake Bay bridge Tunnel when the car ahead of me tried to warn me of the upcoming doom by tapping his brake lights. As soon as I eased into the other lane, the cop hit me with laser and my TMG's jammed him on auto sleep mode! Since this was my first real world hit, I got caught off guard and I didn't catch what gun he shot me with, and it didn't help that my R1 decided to be a hero and pick it up as well and blast out it's laser alert and override my TMG announcing the gun! Skip to 2:00

Nice save! They already paid for themselves... oh, wait. Can you bank a save to pay for your rears?

The rear heads are my next project! Although it's hard to tell in the video, I was running 15 over when my TMG's alerted!

Ain't that funny how my R1 is always as blind as a bat against laser till I really wanted it to shut the hell up? LMAO!

I was testing TMGs this summer with Jared in his neck of the woods with a Stalker XLR or RLR and both my R1 & R3 alerted to Stalker! If I test my heads with my Ultralyte LRB and have the V1 up, it ALWAYS alerts! I usually run V1/JBV1 in town and R1 or R3 on the highway. Just ordered new R7. Got it for $375. R1 or R3 probably going up for sale!

Sounded like the TMGs said kustom ..... *Can't hear* ...Prolite. So probably a PL3/4 or Prolite.

Might as well turn off laser detection on your radar detector once you have jammers. It doesn't contribute anything and has a tendency to drown out the jammer so you have a harder time hearing the jammer alert and what gun you got shot with.

My ears are getting old! My wife says I'm getting deaf. Hearing test says everything is good! Except for one little frequency area. That must be my wife frequencies! Bahaha!

Great idea! I just never worried about it because like I said, my R1's are killers against radar, but normally as blind as a bat against laser! I'm damn sure going to turn laser off!

Nice ! I thought i heard Kustom or Stalker. Good save @ 15+ over.
You don't know the half of it! I was in Hellginia, so he would have got me with my R1, and Redline-O as well! My TMG saved my @ss BIG TIME!!!

I agree with this 100%, at least until or unless you experience the alerts on a regular basis and your brain gets trained for the response. The extra alert and noise is distracting and confusing, you are much better IMO just having one alert that is the legit device that matters for the encounter.

Just +15?

Pffft...lightweight.

Just kidding! Nice save. ;)

My triple digit adventures down the NY Thruway and Jersey Turnpike to Delaware on Friday were fast and fun, but no laser action. :(

Congrats on your first!

Phil
Thanks Phil! Anywhere else I will ball it, but I'm a wimp in "Hellginia"! I will have to admit it!

Yeah, I hear ya. There are places I back off too...because I know the traps. And coming home was LLH hell, so I just tried my best at a wimpy +10, if I could even do that. Just not enough open space. Not safe.

But it's a good feeling to have "protection", especially when you get saved.

Rock on!

Phil

I drive the Thruway and Turnpike all the time and I'm too scared to do those speeds, but the urge is very strong especially on some flat sections that beg for acceleration runs. I'd love to see some of your dashcam footage though so I can experience it vicariously through you. :p

Hell yeah! Stuff like this makes me convinced I need to work on saving up for jammers. I failed the eye test very badly on this one...
