OK people have looked, https://www.escortradar.com/store/la...ifter-zr4.html

The laser shifter is supposed to block the laser speed gun. Bought one will it work, i don't know.

Mine work. Tested last week. Got to be level for closest JTG distance. However, It think laser intercepters are better. You can upgrade them later too. Escort will want to sell you a new model.

Now you guys have me putting this on my Mod list, it may pass a couple by on the list.

Thanks for making my wallet lighter

Looking at the LI, How can you make the sensors more stealth. If you get stopped, you don't want the MTC looking at your sensors.

I have a beltronics that will work with the ZR4, would love to see your feedback on the install and how it works with your detector.

Smokievol, look at my install photos and tell me what you think. Totally stealth.

HYROGRAPHX,
Very good stealth job on those sensors. I did have to look at a couple of pics to find them.
Where did you purchase yours from? Did you do the install?

I did the install myself. Used a router to cut the space for them. Used the sound tube to feed wires into the dash. It really wasn't bad if you have done custom stereo work. Had to pull out the rear seat and panels in the trunk. I think that I bought them straight from Escort (can't remember for sure but I would shop for price). Mine is tied into a Passport IQ. They do seam to work quite well unless those guys under the overpass weren't actually shooting me.

ZR4 is decent jammer, the Blinder and Laser Interceptor work better. If you drive a darker car the ZR4 will be more effective because dark colored cars reflect less light back to the laser gun making it easier for your jammer to do its job. Go to this site below these guys do decent radar detector/jammer reviews.
