Best radar detector you can get is common sense. If you don't want a ticket, don't speed around town.

With all the different types of radar today, it's damn near impossible to make a car fullly radar proof. It's been done, but it costs a couple grand. It was done for one of the gumball rallys.

its also completely illegal.

but it can be. used to know a guy whose comrade was in the military with him, they served together. He had a Supra that was speed detection proof. It was wired with sensors on the car to detect speed equipment and had "jammers" in it. Signals from the guns would not function and the gun would read an error....
it was some weird stuff....
