Funny no mention if they are pursuit rated. Sitting as high as it looks in the pictures it doesn't seem likely. I always laugh when one of the first comments is about not being able to outrun the Motorola. Helicopters and radios are great and work well fro seeing and communicating but most pursuits are short so both… » 5/01/14 5:50am 5/01/14 5:50am

Plenty of issues have been mentioned. Some that haven't yet. The FA DIT in the WRX is not as new as some think so parts aren't so far away or challenging to get to market quickly. The same basic engine is in the Forester turbo and the JDM there is a 296HP version. Both have been out for a year or more. The WRX… » 3/27/14 6:38pm 3/27/14 6:38pm

This is why the laws need to be changed to simply distracted driving. If anything you are doing while driving causes you to weave,change lanes or partially change lanes,impede traffic by not moving away from a stop or on a green light,drive too slowly,closely to other traffic regardless of the device,make up,food… » 3/27/14 3:45pm 3/27/14 3:45pm

I thought of a similar idea of having no co driver(if safety became enough of a drive to demand it)where the driver does the recce and makes notes using a GPS based system of pace notes using his own voice. The pace notes are played back to the driver at speed prior to the point of GPS location where they were made. … » 2/04/14 7:46pm 2/04/14 7:46pm

Don't buy without researching. You get what you pay for. Unless of course you go with the YaV1 app for Android which is free but offers speed based silencing, GPS false lockout and many other capabilities to the best or one of the top 3 detectors in almost every test (independent tests) for the last 10+ years.… » 12/13/13 8:51pm 12/13/13 8:51pm

The Edison 2 IWS sure seems to allow for more wheel travel in both directions. I wonder why no one has used a torsion bar inside the axle for springs instead of coil springs. I'm sure the suspension engineers have already looked into it. The cool part about either Multimatic or Edison2 IWS is the aero benefits that… » 10/24/13 6:23pm 10/24/13 6:23pm

You can outrun the Motorola when you make a few turns and the chasing officer can't relay what direction you are going or where you are to other cops. It isn't always a highway chase where a fleeing driver can't easily hit an offramp, make a few turns in quick succession in a subdivision and disappear before any… » 10/08/13 1:38pm 10/08/13 1:38pm

The civilian version of the Taurus has FWD standard and AWD(SHO)as an option but the police version (Interceptor sedan and Utility for the Explorer) has AWD standard and FWD as a lower cost option. 3.5 liter and 3.7 liter NA v-6s have AWD standard and the Ecoboost versions only come AWD with no FWD option. » 9/26/13 2:44pm 9/26/13 2:44pm

The concept is interesting and although not instantly beautiful after looking at the lines more it kind of grows on you. My hope is that with the announcement of crossover and city car that Caterham bought the rights and processing from Gordon Murray for his T25/T27 city car. I can only hope Caterham makes a… » 9/20/13 12:04pm 9/20/13 12:04pm
