A client from here in Gainesville recently dropped into Sound Depot and Performance to inquire about a 2018 Chevy Camaro SS radar detector and laser defense system. With 455 horsepower available from the 6.2L V8, it takes very little time for this Camaro to exceed the speed limit anywhere in Florida. The client wanted to make sure that one extra second on the loud pedal wouldn’t cost him hundreds of dollars in speeding fines.
Chevy Camaro Escort Radar Detector
We based the traffic ticket defense system around the Escort MAX 360C. This portable radar detector offers excellent front and rear radar detection sensitivity and includes Escort’s In-Vehicle Technology (IVT) filter to prevent false alarms caused by adaptive cruise control and lane departure systems. The MAX 360C has an easy-to-read OLED display and will let you know what kind of threat it has detected.
We mounted the MAX 360C underneath the rear-view mirror using a Blendmount BMG-2927 bracket. This bracket eliminates the windshield mount and provides a secure and tidy mounting solution.
Escort ZW5 Laser Defense System
As many local police forces have started to switch to laser speed guns from radar, we installed an Escort ZW5 laser shifter system. This system works in conjunction with the MAX 360C to make it nearly impossible for a police officer to take a speed reading of the vehicle. Once the client ensures he is traveling within the speed limit, he can cancel the laser shifters, let the officer measure his speed, and continue on his way.
The shifters for the ZW5 hardwired system are located in the lower front grille of the Camaro, and we aligned them carefully to ensure maximum sensitivity and range.
Airaid Cold Air Intake System
While at Sound Depot and Performance, the client noticed that we sell automotive performance accessories. He wanted a cold-air intake to improve the performance of his Camaro. We ordered an Airaid MXP-Series 250305 Performance Air Intake System for the client, and one of the technicians installed the kit on the vehicle while it was in the shop. The Airaid intake offers less airflow restriction than the factory intake and includes a SynthaMax dry filter to keep the engine clean.
Alachua County’s Automotive Accessory Experts
After a day’s work, we had the radar and laser defense system installed and tested, and it was time for the client to return to Sound Depot and Performance to see the Chevy Camaro system. We reviewed the installation with him and explained how to use the MAX 360C detector. Of course, he had to start up the Camaro and give the engine a few good revs to check out the intake. The smile on his face told us everything we needed to know. If you are looking for accessories for your vehicle, drop by our store or send us an e-mail using our contact page.
