(as I recall back then, my other alternatives were the Scott Addict, which was a lot cheaper but lighter(?), as well as the Colnago Extreme Power)
The VXRS Ulteam was never the stiffest nor the lightest, but the amount of "tech" TIME actually puts into while designing VXRS frameset was pretty impressive back in 2006, particularly the asymmetrical chainstays, CMT, ISP etc.
As shown below, the weight for the complete "module" as TIME calls it is pretty decent considering the age.
1460grams with fork, TIME QUICKSET headset system with bearings, seatpost/seatpost clamp, RD hanger
(minus TIME stem)
Frameset/fork is currently on its way for a repaint as well some "modifications" to it.
Still contemplating if I should go crazy with sub 5.3kg build (with the typical boutique components, AX, THM etc),
or go for functional/practicality with a Campy 80th Anniversary groupset?
Feel free to share some ideas if available.
Below are some pics to keep the thread going..

VXRS Ulteam 2006 - Before
I'm sure Bettini would approve while Valverde and Zabel lament why they were not riding a VXRS.
THE PRESENT: 2016 Colnago C60 ST01, 2017 Wilier Cento 10 Ramato

The bikes back in 2006/07 never fail to impress me..
Dogma FPX, Extreme Power, and the VXRS of course!
Nearly bought an FPX but ended up with a Colnago E1 (2005) so I think should be in your list... I know is heresy as the E1 was built for stomping and not climbing...
The speedvagen paint schemes pictured in various and current Eurobike coverage are amazing. I like anything that accentuates Integrated seat posts. They only thing Time has ever made that I don't really like (aesthetically) is that stem.
i'm looking forward to seeing your completed project. enjoy!
No matter how modern and good frames get I always have a Time VXRS on top of my wishlist
