With our annual appearance at SpeedZones rapidly approaching (last week of June) we have procured an arrest-me-red 2006 C6 corvette convertible for this year's western route of our radar detector review.
This year we are expecting to compare: The latest versions of the best radar detectors currently being produced: Beltronics RX-65 Pro, Beltronics STI Driver, Escort 8500 X50, and the venerable Valentine V1 radar detectors.
Instead of using our 2005 Black Dodge Viper, we wanted to mix-up the American muscle with the latest that Chevy has to provide. All accounts is that this vehicle is as refined as a Porsche.
If that is really true, we are really looking forward to tooling around the roads of New Mexico, rural Arizona and Texas.
Even though petrol is north of $3/gallon, I don't think I'll be worring about that...a speeding ticket still eclipses these prices by a signficant margin...Hope we fare as well as we did last time out...Zero tickets...but hey, we weren't tooling around in a bright red vette!
We'll just have to keep our fingers crossed! We should have a full report available for your reading pleasure, mid-July.
