Also, less of a target for laser.

Currently running a Valentine One. Looking at the Escort IQ, maybe when it's updated.
Detectors are too easy to beat if the cop runs radar/laser actively. One of my favorite things when I was on the job was the look on people's faces as I approached their car when their expensive detector failed to warn them in time. Priceless.
I have yet to lose an "instant on" encounter. Any dirver who is not vigilant and does not have sufficient "event horizon" should concentrate on developing those necessary skills before they explore the performance limits of their vehicles.
Ah oh...stealth technology finally made it to the automotive world...lol
You wouldn't have to worry about me anyways...I'm not on the job anymore. The B.S. to pay ratio was skewed to one side way too much so I am in career changing mode at the moment.
I was an LEO for five years in the 70s. Why am I not surprised that the B.S. (which I then termed "administrative drag") has not gone away?
I'm sure it's worse then when you were on the streets. Between sue happy residents, internet educated "lawyers" and the youtube generation...the bad guys have a lot more "rights" than we do. Makes it darn near impossible to do the job effectively.
It's a beautiful, expensive and temperamental thing with the rotary. I love the rotary more than almost anybody but I've just done and seen all there is to do with a rotary short of dropping in a 20B (3 rotor) and it's just not worth it. The engine really isn't all that light and it's really just a poor (granted unique) design.
