    You might be able to outrun one, but can you outrun the radio? All they need to do is call for backup.

    Maybe some of you live in more rural areas with fewer cops, in that case your lucky. Where I live in Orlando they're everywhere, its not something I could do in my city.

    Know your area (backroads)...also helps if you can turn off your taillights and brake lights

    Ok, your right.

    Look like I said before I'm just telling you someone else's story, what do I know? I don't even have a 6 speed.

    We're not talking about an A4, and who said this was on the track?

    i dont care how fast they can call to another officer.. THAT OFFICER IS IN A CAR ALSO.... THEREFORE JUST AS SLOW AS THE OTHER ONE!!

    i hate the saying.. "cant outrun the Motorola".. last time i checked i havnt seen one bust out of the 14s and dont trap over 100mph.. if a cop radios my location there is going to have to be one within just a few seconds of me... what do their cars do 0-60, 10 seconds.. my car does what 3 secs? lmao.. cop cars are a joke.

    Yeah, Our cars are slow. It sucks. That's why we have spike strips and a helicopter. It is possible to get away from the police if you do it right away... If we get your Plate # you are Screwed and are probably going to prison. You may get away right off the bat, but you will probably end up with someone beating in your front door at 3 AM to take you to jail.
