Interstate, very hilly up and down stretch of road. I am in the fast lane going 80 passing 18 wheelers who are having a hard time getting up the hills. V1 goes off, hit the breaks hard, just as I was getting ready to become the lead car, and bam!. I had 3 seconds before the V1 went solid Ka band.
10 miles down the road, I get another faint Ka hit. I am stuck in the fast lane so I slow down, and about a 1/2 mile down the road there he is facing me. I could see the whites of his eyes, and he hits me with Ka. That time it seemed as if I had a life time to slow down.
Needless to say, having that extra power of the V1 paid off. I keep thinking about how the ix was about .03 miles less sens. than the V1 when I tested it the other day. I wonder if the ix would have saved me?
Very Very happy with my decision to keep the V1.
