I have heard the hot wheels radar guns work well but have never tried one. I use a bushnell that I bought from radio shack for under $100

I have used every one of them, the cheap ones are an absolute joke when you are standing at the bottom of a long hill. The SUPERBAD cop lightar ones are about $3k, makes the decaturs look like chump change.

I like my stalker pro more than my old prospeed Bill. It registers the speed increments faster plus it has all sorts of different settings and ranges that you can mess with for increased accuracy. They aren't as "cool" looking as the prospeeds though

Oh and those cheap guns are a joke. They'll click off an updated speed every other second or so. It is impossible to get an accurate reading with them.

I have a newer prospeed than the one I am using, sitting in a closet, it has the data port, and I have the software sitting next to it to download to a laptop. You can get G-forces, 0-60, 60ft times, etc etc etc. I should probably sell mine and update. I get "technology overload" sometimes, and kinda like to just stick to what has worked before. "Technology" has a way of taking up half my day sometimes, and that is the part of the day I don't get paid for. I like to have a good time when I go to the dunes, leave work and all the related bs @ home.

Yup, the data guns are really cool. I was VERY tempted to buy a stalker STATS gun which records all of your runs and you can plug it into a computer and it plots your acceloration for the duration of the pass. That way you can check your top speed, but also compare your runs against each other to see which pass was the best.
