    I was wondering if people who have monster tachs could post up pics of where they have mounted it.


    Trying to decide where to put mine.

    The reason i want one. Is when i am on the road course, its hard to see the tach in mid corner with your arms blocking the cluster.

    im not a big fan of monster tachs anymore, they kinda lossed their luster around 2002. i say go to autometer and get one of those tach's and shiftlights. Stage 2 should be good. i believe matt started a thread about them

    tons and tons of fun. Thats what i started doing got hooked then started open tracking. I like the higher speed stuff. Last year i would hit the brakes at 200km/hr on the front straight now with the HCI i am hoping to hit 240kms before i brake


    Where are you located?

    I'm in PA where there is snow and ice right now. :mad:

    My uncle used to be BIG into it and has got me interested. The only thing I'm not sure about is driving it hard. It's always babied, I don't know if I can rev it up real high either. I'm a softie when it comes to my car. :hammer:

    Attached to the A-pillar. If you want to eventually take it out, you can buy a new a-pillar for about $25.
