    Default Re: ZR3 testing and save in same day, alignment is everything

    Snoop: totally agree about the ultralyte. But what is being used in Albany is the LTI truspeed, which I hear is pretty easy to jam, hence the save on the way home. Samq45 tells me that the LA is used in CT, which I frequent also. So I should be able to jam those 2 pretty well.
    If the LTI Truspeed and Laser Atlanta are the two primary guns in your area, then the ZR3s should do well in most encounters except "ambush style shots":



    Note: the test vehicle in the above video was a black GTO with veil on the headlights and license plate. Also, the license plate had a plate cover to reduce it's reflectivity.

    It doesn't matter what CM you're running for Lidar, that new orange plate is what's creating an invisible force field around your front end.

    I'm lovin the retro style plates in NY! got them first thing when I moved from CT. You gotta run your front plate in NY though. I got a neighbor who was running with no front plate, I saw him get pulled over right outside our complex. Now he's got his front plate on.

    Yeah I'm in Utica myself. Not running a front plate in NY is a big no-no, as is no plate covers, clear or colored. I'm honestly not a big fan of the new plates, especially considering they cost extra.

    CT requires a front plate as well now.

    I've been running laser shield plate covers on all my cars for years and have never been hasseled. Just went thru a registration check point last week and not a second look. And I've heard from a very credible source that they make it more difficult for the plate readers to get a lock and i can't tell you how many times I've seen them on cruisers going by.

    Yeah I too have heard that that's why they don't want plate covers, since it does interfere with the readers. With that being said, I've never personally talked to anybody that was ticketed for having a cover. It was mentioned to me by a LEO in passing conversation. I imagine it's kinda like driving with a license plate light or 3rd brake light out; sure it's technically illegal and the chances of being pulled over for such an offense are slim to none, but I'd rather attract the least amount of attention as possible. The LEO probably fishing for other offenses, absolutely, but I have been pulled over and ticketed for a rear plate light out, so I've lived and learned.

    I was pulled over for having a plate cover, and just before he went back to his car to wright up the ticket i offered to take it off right then and there. He said sure, i never had anyone offer to take it off before. No ticket, impressed the LEO, and went on my merry way.
