    Default Encountered a leaky detector today.

    So I see a pair of glaring HID's coming my way and think ricer. As he comes barreling up behind me I start to get a very strong Ka signal, and he gets up right on my ass and the V1 is blaring. He passes me and I laugh at his Cobra sitting in the windshield and his fart can out the back. Silly ricers.

    Sure it wasn't an unmarked cop car?

    They do make great rabbits. You just can't follow too close with the V1 and Ka Guard OFF.
