    Here are some current pics of my 06 tc work in progress track car.
    current mods:
    Injen cai
    Megan cat back (painted jet back)
    badgless grills
    partially stripped interior(rear seat and no stereo equip)
    partially dressed up engine bay and interior molding (wip, desiding how far I want to take this since it will be a track car, but still a partial daily driver, I use the wife's car if at all possible for long distance stuff, which is also a Tc :))

    Red to the Corp I see. :)

    Good paint on the axle-back. It does give it a stealthy look. I noticed that the exhaust opening in your rear bumper is damaged by the Megan. Fellow member Mengsta sells a C12 carbon fiber exhaust opening guard for the rear valence in his online store. He does not have it posted on the sight right now but he can still get the part. You can give him a buzz. http://www.mengmotorsports.com.

    Have you seen our weight loss formula threads? http://www.club-tc.com/forums/tc-knowledgebase/4540-weights-commonly-replaced-components.html Weight loss can be free and easy. I suggest that you get some OBX or similar pedal covers as the OEM can be slippery. Missed pedals in a race can be disastrous.

    You have a nice looking tC. Have fun getting her the way you want.

    Actually I have checked out the weight loss threads, and I do have a question, the counter weights, you state their location, but even after about 10 minutes of looking around under the hood, i couldn't find any of the motor mount weights etc and I didn't want to just start screwing with stuff. So, I was wondering if maybe, time allowing, you could provide some pics, or give me some help finding these and i'll post some pics so others can find them better. I'm no mechanic, so I'm learning everything as I go and buying what I need to do the job as I go, so any and all help is very much appreciated.
    The rear bumper damage is actually no fault of the exhuast, that happened when I was adjusting the height of the canister to avoid bottoming out and had it practically resting up against the bumper, until I did this there was absolutely no damage, and it hasn't gotten worse since I lowered it a little. user error as most would say, and this being my first attempt at a do it myself track car, I assume there will be more scars to come lol.

    These weights look like round donuts. There are the 2 depicted in the middle pict that are on the mount in front of the master cylinder. The forward mount that is down low between the engine and radiator has one on each side. They are attached by 10mm bolts.
