Cool Laser question...

Found this on another site, what are your thoughts?

I had briefly mentioned this in a thread before, but it is perplexing me again. I have an Escort Passport 8500 X50. At wide open throttle, it picks up a laser signal every time. At first I was thinking it was the supercharger sound waves refracting brake lights, or some strange phenomenon, but recently I realized it is only with the pedal smashed to the floor whether the car is in 6th at 1500rpm or second at 6000.

So, in thinking about this, I realized our cars are drive by wire. Does anyone know if there is an infrared signal of some sort the car uses at WOT?

It's not a big deal, because I can turn the laser band off, but now it's more of a quest... Anyone have any other thoughts?
