    Default Rabbit demo

    If you're sipping some wine, or a coffee in the morning, you may want to watch this whole video which I recorded yesterday going NB I-15 in Utah. I was cruising low to mid 90's until a rabbit passed who was going steady 100. That's when the fun began. The video is around 11 minutes. Rabbit starts at 6:24. It's terrain like this that got me to go with Escort-REDLiNE-Radar-Detector-p/redline.htm">Redline. There are no alerts or LEOs in this video, which is why I posted it here.... You can also see why a CB is of limited use here - not many truckers.

    A 4X version was also posted, kind of fun to watch this one.

    Jeez those are some flat, straight roads. If we had roads like that here, id do 100 all the time too lol. Instead i have to settle for short stints 90-130 if conditions are just right.

    I bet you get some insane detection range with terrain like that.

    Nice that you have folks that yield the left lane there. In my area people tend to clog the left lane and will not yield it to faster cars. Drives me nuts!

    Use Google Maps and look at Salt Lake City west on I80 to Wendover. No hills on that either till just before the UT/NV border.
    Try driving 65MPH on this.

    Yeah, that video will be next in a couple of weeks. I plan to do a "Bonneville Slat Flats in 60 seconds" video... should be fun.

    Nice video! That's what I love about living in the western US, many miles of wide open roads where you can let your long-legged car get out and run. I made that run from St George to SLC a week ago, had one Ka alert north of Beaver at the usual spot. My Redline alerted me before I crested the hill, I had plenty of time to slow down.
