    The rx65 owns the 33.8 BEE

    Although a small difference for 34.7 Stalker ATR, the V1 takes it, note that at that distance eveyone does very well and seems to have relatively equal protection.

    35.5 talon; it is a draw between Bel and escort, very short range, nobody should feel good about it.

    Yeah, at the top of those results for 35.5 Ghz Ka you're still talking about less than 0.2 miles.

    The Bel rx65 was all over the board on the mph enforcer KA test. From second worst to second best. What is going on? I know if I bought one I would get the one the E795 could beat.

    Best actually. 3 out of the 4 top spots. It's all about USA mode :wink:

    I was surprised about that myself. I also noticed that USA/INTL made about twice as much difference for 33.8 on mine as it did on Raven's. Odd, to say the least. Mine's downright terrible for 33.8 in INTL. Another real turd was Outrun's V1 against 35.5. That was the biggest shock of all to me.

    i would say rx-65 won for Ka in all fairness, but v1 was extremely close. note that 4 rx-65's were used and only 2 v1's were used (of different models also, 3.825 being irrelevant a this point since its been outdone by 3.826, so you can say really 1 v1 was used.) so in all fairness, give the v1 some credit on that note. dont forget i did say i give rx-65 the notch for ka...

    but obviously for everything else the v1 rules. again, ka i would have to say is the most important threat to me, so i mean it all depends. and on another note they didn't test pop and laser detection. and last but not least, as you all probably know, Mike can read the results, do some firmware tweaking and i can mail my baby back in for an upgrade and be back on top as the undisputed king...well hopefully

    i would say

    1.Rx-65
    1.V1
    3.Sti/x50 depending on need for stealth or not

    I hate to admit it, but the STI won Ka over the V1 3.826. Even Roy's detuned (less falsing) update beat the V1.

    The RX65 results are a distraction due to extreme production variances. I wouldn't trust it unless I could be assured that mine was not the Friday afternoon build

    Remember the radar was aimed at an angle to the roadway, hence the greatly reduced range. Still though, the V1 (3.825) range is not good compared to the others. I would go as far as to say that one V1 may have a hardware issue on 35.5 GHz. If it were mine it would be going in for service and the 3.826 upgrade.
