    Default Bel STi - Speedzones Test is Out

    It will be interesting to see what DET comes up with regarding "true" leakage; but according to SML this passes muster..

    "The STI was invisible down to point blank range with the noses of the vehicles touching"

    Yeah baby take that Cam Wooley kiss my speeding ass.

    Also, I note the V1 was detected at 544 feet :shock:

    That's actually not bad compared with some of the results they've had during their annual shootouts:

    2002 - 1057 feet
    2003 - 889 feet
    2004 - 1860 feet
    2005 - 166 feet

    I agree! Just because it beats the Spectre 3 for now I'm still not convinced. Let's see the true leakage, has DET got his hands on an STI yet? Anyone know how long before his tests are released?

    RDD's and/or RD's "manufacturing tolerances and/or various versions" are obviously wacked; this summer SML Spectre III tested V1 at 166 feet; Radar Roy has same; GOL have V1 at 98 front; 338 rear

    Yeah I dont take any stock in the "range" of detection numbers. They are all over the place.

    As for the DET test yup I;m waiting but its hard not to crank up the happy dance after several years.

    I wonder how they come up with the phrase "blistering sensitivity" it doesnt seem to be substantiated by their write up. Maybe some unpublished tests?

    Speedzones is so inconsistent you never know when they are telling the truth anymore in my opinion. SML said the Bel 995 and the V1 don't detect Ka POP and they do! SML said the Blinder Xtreme jammed stealth mode and it didn't! SML also said that no laser jammer's jammed the LA stealth mode! SML has 2 vastly differenent detection ranges of the V1 with the Spectre III! I'm sure there is more I can't think of right now.
    Another thing I noticed based on the pictures of that aritcle is SML did not have the Spectre and the STI mounted level. Also noticed the picture of the Spectre was not the Spectre III unless it was orignally an older Spectre model that was upgraded to a III.

    I'll believe the STI is stealth if Roy and/or GOL tests show it is.

    Boy this is interesting:

    "The labeling must contain a FCC ID # of the detector and contain the wordage of “This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference and (2) this device must accept any interference received including interference that may cause undesired operation.”


    So did the FCC just put (2) in so they or any other government agency could screw us if they wanted to?????
