Looking good. Did you come up with any new insights for the out of area guys?

I'm wondering if there is an opportunity to optimize placement of the radar antenna.

I still need to test my laser and radar to see how well it works. The radar doesn't seem to be sensitive enough so it may need relocation or adjustment.

I plan to get a lidar gun soon and make sure I am covered front and back.

MWLMD has his shifters on the furthest outer slat and protruding slightly.

I have mine on the second outer slat and more flush.

I know MWLMD has full coverage, I don't know how well I am doing as they were just installed.

The radar is new and hasn't had time to GPS lockout grocery stores etc so I need to be sure it is picking everything up. I have all mods turned on to make sure it's working.

Radar antenna is a big concern, will update

The location I think would be optimal for radar reception would be the driver's side foglight intake area. I may try this when I get time to relocate it. That said I have driven Atlanta-Miami twice, and Miami-Atlanta once with no tickets.

Roughly where I described, but just above the driver's side foglight intake so it isn't visible. I want to lower it into that intake.
