hey guys. been a while since i posted. since i got a new car though, i figured i'd post up how i have my V1 set up now. lemme know what you guys think. i'm mostly happy with it, although it bugs me that the main unit is a little bit slanted towards the left.. i'll live with it haha.. wiring could be better, but it's hard to do in a vert. without using glue, i don't know how i'll get the wiring to sit more flush.
something i've been considering since the Miata is so low (mine's lowered also). mounting high generally means that the V1 line of sight is still obstructed by other cars. i know that's fine for radar. do you guys think there would be any advantage to mounting the main unit in my front grille area? i'd have the unit enclosed in a thick plastic shell of some sort, with a lot of insulation inside to protect from bumps. the only advantage i see with this setup is that the V1 might be able to peek under cars for better radar reception. how much would radar signals from the rear be affected? i doubt radar will travel all the way through the chassis of the car, and through the engine to the V1 unit (if i'm shot from behind).
edit: i hate photobucket... if i use image tags, it displays the max resolution picture, which screws up the thread.. sorry guys, you'll have to click!
