STi Magnum or Redline?
Yes, I know RD's/jammers are illegal here in the Old Dominion, but if they're going to EM me, then I'm going to use some of the best ECM measures available, just in spite of them. I have a STi Magnum and have been very pleased with its performance. I started off with the STi Driver, but had it upgraded to the STi Magnum as soon as the option became available. I now just found a few forum entries where Radar Roy says the Escort Redline is one of the best available (but it doesn't have the "TotalShield Technology" needed to defeat the Spectre RDD). I've seen other posts comparing the two as almost equal units. At $500 each, I would hope that both are top of the line. I've considered the ZR-4 Shifter, but after receiving the unit, installation could be a nightmare, especially for my model of car. I would've had to cut two rectangular holes in my front bumper facia for the front head units unit to work properly. There goes any inconspicuous looks as far as the police are concerned...I'm almost sure they'd know what they were looking at. Also, the $450 price tag of the ZR-4 on top of the $500 Magnum detector is a bit pricey. I've found I only go over the speed limit a few miles an hour, if even that much since having bought the Magnum. The faster one goes, the less reaction time one has to slow down, unless a radar/laser jammer (a really GOOD one) is in use and even then you have to be alert 100% of time if you're going over the speed limit at all. Almost every cruiser in my area is equipped with a radar/laser device of some type...the good ole' days are certainly gone for good!
