Hey everyone, Iíve been lurking around this forum reading threads for a few days and figured itís about time I join!
I just bought myself a new sports coupe and wanted to get a RD because with a twin turbo engine sometimes I donít even realize Iím hitting 90-100 mphÖ. So I figured I should definitely invest in one of these before I end up with too many tickets. I donít speed too much, but with this car you have to have a little fun right? Plus itíll be a good warning for me when I donít realize how fast Iím going.
From what Iíve researched, everyone seems to love the V1 and I almost purchased one. Paying $399 doesnít really bother me, but I also donít want to spend more than I need to.
So I started looking into the refurb escort 8500ís and 8500 x50ís
I need a RD that
1. Works well for both city and highway driving, although most of my speeding will be on highway.
2. Doesnít false too much that will desensitize me (one of my main concerns with the V1 from what Iíve read)
3. is durable (I wont have to send it in for repair constantly as with the 8500ís)
4. I was willing to spend 400 for the V1, but I donít really want to go over that since this is mainly for precautionary purposes. I realize laser is out there, and donít really feel the need to buy a jammer. I feel like if I have a jammer and a RD I will just have an excuse to speed all the time lol
What do you guys recommend? I live in Houston, TX btw
