Greg - when are you leading?? Mike says you are!
Get an Escort 360c.

When they assume those numbers are KPH.

It's mostly black and finiky. Filmed in the dark.

Yep, full throttle in the corners and around 8mph over the limit in the straights. I could feel Artim's rage building this weekend for going to slow! I've never had an issue with cops in 14 years if leading drives.

Well if you count out the two times the entire county was put on alert for us passing locals!

what do you like about the 360c? I have to admit I liked my 9500iX by Escort - so I wanted to support the Escort products again. but, the Uniden R1/R3 seems to be the range king and also offers undetectability (as detectors are not approved in Ontario) which the 360 does not offer.
thoughts?

From reviews I read before I bought it, it's range is comparable or greater than other tested detectors. It also is undetectable by radar detecting radar, it has indicators for the direction of the radar signal and does an above average job of detecting LASER. I just went and looked again and it seems (depending on the reviewer) to be a tie. This might come down to price difference.

I'll end up getting the R3 by the Spring event, so i can lead a drive.

The R3 is a beast. Also one thing not mentioned....it has some of the best filtering due to blind spot detection and cruise radar systems in other vehicles.

Back on topic...Ken this sounds like a novel idea. I would love to attend.
