no that means they dont have their radars on bro. cops dont turn that shit all the time. they can pace you, and if they pace you there's no way the radar will pick up anything.

it saved me last night for sure when i was playing with the viper.

i put it on L the most sensitive. it's annoying coz it picks up everything. but its good for me, slows me down

Yeah it works for me but you have to learn how the V1 works Make sure you know how to recognize each tone. It will help you to better dtermine where those coppies are. If they are pacing you from behind or not. If you don't know how to recognize the tones then you can get into some trouble.

Personally, I prefer little L the best. A is ridiculous. Big L is also okay, but little L is like goldilock's porridge...JUST RIGHT!

You couldn't be more wrong. Try and not giving bad advice. If you had you wouldn't be saying these things.

Lots of bad information in here.

A question....

Can a cop give a ticket just by saying "you were going to fast" without using his laser? (no proof)
