Yeah probably. Not sure if detectors are legal in NY. Never looked into it. It doesn't change the fact that I didn't realize what the limit currently was though.

Oh and a thought...I did a ridealong with the sheriff in March and he doesn't use his radar constantly. It is usually off and he only flicks it on when traffic is coming towards him in which case a detector would likely offer little if any help.

Changing spark plugs in a bit

Put shadowline on my chrome trim yesterday

Had a capacitor installed to help save my alternator from my subs. Sounds even better now with the instant power the cap provides.

What sport antenna, is it just a fake one or a real external antenna.
I am looking to add an external antenna to get AM Radio.

FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU, I jinxed myself. There is no air blowing out my vents. All fuses are fine, so I will replace the FSR tomorrow morning. Before the air would be pulsing through the vents.
