    Hey guys, I know a bunch of you guys got in on the Laser Interceptor Black Friday deal a few months ago. And I'm sure there are some members on here that already have LI setups or other laser jammer setups.

    I think it would be nice if we set up a day to get together to test our countermeasures and split the cost of the LIDAR gun rental. I got in touch with http://www.lasergunrentals.com/ and this is what they sent me:

    Who is interested?

    The UltraLyte LR B is used widely throughout US. The TruSpeed model is becoming popular because of its low price point.

    If you were to rent one gun to test your LI, I'd go with the Ultralyte. (It's what I use to test my LI setups).

    You can rent either gun for 3 days for $199 or 7 days for $249 (all rentals inc free round-trip shipping via UPS Ground). Rental period begins when you receive the gun.

    Hey Cheu, date is flexible at this point. I was hoping for something soon so we can all make sure our countermeasures are working effectively. I think me and Ken are installing his LI this weekend. Not sure when Street is installing his, he said his car is at Phil's.

    You'll def get a bigger following when people take their cars out for the spring.

    Not to mention its so cold out!

    This is true. I was just saying how the earlier the better since driving with untested countermeasures isn't ideal.

    But, come springtime, if we can gather like 10 cars, this would really bring the cost down for everyone.

    Or maybe we can get one group for sometime soon, and then another for the spring if there is enough interest.

    Sorry for slightly off topic but I've been wondering have you guys had instances that you've felt that your LIDAR jammers have actually worked?

    yes, I can recall about 6 instances right now.

    One was almost JTK but toggled off right before passing. (close range shot) Got pulled over but was informed no reading was obtained- cliff notes is no problem

    Last weekend in the 997 I was hit by the CSP when I forgot to slow down northbound on 84 across from the Weigh Station just before you cross the border in Sturbridge. I was going 80 not paying attention, banged down a gear, JTK and passed him at ~70 and got popped from behind as I passed according to the V1.

    Came across the border, got on the Pike and set the cruise for 85 because usually there are never Staties stationary eastbound between Charlton and 290. But there was one sitting on the right hand side running LIDAR by the weigh station in an unmarked, shit myself, cruise off banged down a gear, JTK, and passed him doing 75 really getting on the ass of the car in front of me that slowed down to 55 way too late.

    I have a LI HP front and rear and it has saved my ass quite a few times.

    if you are thinking soon, ill be back for the jan 28th/29th.

    not sure what i plan on doing yet for feb/march.

    I dont have a LI yet, but ive heard a lot of good things from ken and others. Definitely willing to chip in to see how it all works first hand before purchasing a setup for myself.
    Oh Yeah!

    LI HP Quad? Ballar!

    I only have a LI dual setup, but if a good deal comes up on jammer heads, I might upgrade later on.

    Not ballar: pcar turbo. Cops sniff it out!

    I'm noticing more hits from the rear, it isn't often, but it has happened more in the past 6 months or so. If you have an LI, at some point a set of duals for the rear will be helpful, especially if you enjoy 'spirited' driving.

    My old passport SRX saved me 4 times. One of which being a close range shot from a town cop.

    Hmmm, all right then. I think come springtime I'll put together a LIDAR gun rental event. I'll try and get two different guns from the place so we can test our setups with more than one gun.

    maybe we'll even be able to find a LEO shooting lidar so we can all cruise by him and make him think that his gun is broken.
