Has anyone done one of these ever? Basically thinking of using one of the random buttons on my steering wheel that I don't use (like the stock stereo controls) to send a signal to a relay that disables the brake lights when I'm holding that button?
During all normal driving (and power off), the relay defaults to brake lights enabled. But when power comes from that one button, the brake lights are disabled. And since it uses a stock button, it's not like anybody is going to be able to know it's there.
This way, when you get hit with radar or laser and hit your brakes, the cops don't know (other than if you dip) that you're hitting your brakes.
I've had a buddy with his V1 driving down the road at night, about 80 in a 65 zone (or maybe 70 zone, I dunno...) and a cop came up behind him and was pacing him a little bit. He flipped his radar on then back off, and my buddy hit tapped brakes a little bit. He turned it back on then off again and he hits his brakes. Pulls him over (at the speed he paced him at) and says "hey, how's it going... where's the radar detector?" He ended up getting off of the ticket, but still it might be a nice thing to be able to do, disabling the lights for a second, you know?
