When being pursued by another vehicle, unless you are prepared, you have very few options. When you are in a car chase there are only two outcomes that will occur:
1- Your car will be disabled and you will be caught
2- You will escape
Without proper preparation, your chances of escaping will be minimal. Maybe pursuers will get in an accident disabling their vehicle, or maybe your superior driving will loose them.
However if two or more cars are chasing you, superior driving will be a lot less effective.
To increase your chances of success in a car chase, you must first prepare yourself and your vehicle. Then you must take the right action during the chase:
Preparing Yourself and Your Car
How to Protect Your Car
1- Get Run Flat Tires on Your Car
This will protect your car from being disabled. Even if you run over a spike strip, your car will still be able to drive at speeds of 55 mph or more.
2- Better Shocks
If you need to go off road, higher quality shocks will make the difference of getting through it or not
3- Upgrade your Bumper
Replace your cars current bumpers with dual ram bumpers.
4- Heavy Duty Radiator
Replace your current radiator with a new heavy duty radiator which can keep up with the chase.
5- Bullet Proof Windows and Body
