Like I told a buddy of mine who did that at 130mph...

"Just GO! See how fast this bitch will go!"

They tend to stop chasing you.

Just a matter of luck. The cop who pulled me over asked why I was street racing, I replied, "I wasn't street racing, it was just a little horseplay between friends."

I once flew by a cop doing 110 on the way to a autoX, but he must have been asleep or something because he never pulled out. I was scared SHITLESS.

never the less I just kept goin till I hit traffic and just blended in as best I could.

Valentine 1 is the best $400 I have ever spent on my car. Just yesterday it gave me a mile warning about an oncoming cop car. It then told me when he made a U-turn and was trying to get a speed on us from behind a row of cars. sneaky sneaky. The guy two cars back passed me while we were being pasted with radar, and got pulled a minute later.

try that one in VA. Anything over 80mph is jailable. 90+ is a ticket straight to jail.

Yep, Here in Ontario. Some other provinces are allow you to have them.

300$ fine IIRC, and they take the jammer/detector.

They can also detect them at range, the V1/whatever else itself. It leaks radio waves at some frequency. They pretty much all do.
