So I'm still alive and slowly working on this. It seems like one thing after another... Powertrain seems to all sorted out. Bought a K-Tuned RSX shifter assembly WITH H22 cables and trans bracket and the cables "don't fit" I have to send them back to K-Tuned because "they're damaged". I super regretful of the hassle I've had to deal with this shifter and hopefully K-Tuned takes care of me properly. But so far every interaction I've had with them I haven't been worth their time and somehow I damaged the cables in the 30 seconds they were installed. I'll write up a clearer description of the situation after it's all taken care of, but right now I'm just a little beat down. Still chugging along lol.

That's a little crappy on their part. If it were me, I would ask for pictures and then for you to send them in if those weren't helpful. Then, with them in my possession I could make a better call as to their condition. I wouldn't just claim that someone having an issue installing my part could only have damaged them if they are not working.

The worst part is the fancy race cables actually have a lot of lash in them... my 25 year old cables have zero lash. I wish I could just return everything. 1200 is a lot to spend on a cool looking shifter...

That sucks man, I can't even imagine spending $1200 on a shifter, then not be happy with it.

Are you gonna return all of it then?

If they can't fix the cables I'm going to try.

That sucks. Sure, they'll take your money but when it's time to help the customer that all goes out the window.

Long story short...
Got sick of dealing with the shifter because they asked me to reinstall it again to take more pictures.
On 6/4/18 I met someone who is now my fiance. So she's kept me pretty busy lol.
Started doing some work to my Jeep that got pretty involved.
Picked up a Neon that needed a lot of work.
So I said the Honda can wait. Turns out I'm getting busier and busier.
On my current to do list:
Finish moving into our new house (lots of unpacking)
Finish assembling the new rear axle for my Jeep.
Install new front and rear axles in the Jeep
Replace the Neon starter
Clean all my guns that I just shot
Install a security system in the new place
Build a new rack for my snake terrariums so I can stack the tanks.
Then modify the K-Tuned shifter myself to work.
Fasten all the new electronics to the Honda
Get it tuned
And hopefully get it on the track this fall.

Not sure if those last three items are gonna happen though. I picked up new responsibilities at work and now trip season starts in the middle of July instead of late October. Great. Yucca AZ in August is gonna be miserable.

P.S. Falling in love takes up a lot of time and changes priorities you never thought would change.

It just gets tougher for project cars from here. Time management is crucial!

Whilst i was logged in i clicked on the dynamics data link in my sig. Started looking through the data and realized the CB originally had 8" of wheel travel. Which is insane. A JK Wrangler Rubicon only has 8.5" of wheel travel. Maybe this thing will end up rally esk now... I built my jeep for high speed desert racing. I don't think it would be hard to do to the CB lol.

if I had the extra time I would liked to have met you both when I was out that way and see this long running project. I just didn't realise how expansive MI is plus the rain and snow sucked minus the Gilmore Car Museum.

I see more of the Jeep than your CB. btw did you have the motorcycle as well or did you wind up selling it?

Congrats man! I hear you on the life getting busy part. But glad to know youre working on it again!

And if you put CR-V struts and springs on it you can get more than 8" of travel. One of our members did it before. I can try to find the link later.

Also a few of us have been wondering about you. Glad to hear that you are ok and life just got overly busy.

One last thing just to check, you just met her 24 days ago, and she's already your fiance? If that is so, that is great and I hope the best for both of you. Congratulations!!! Just seems a little quick, maybe a typo.

I was wondering about you earlier today. Glad you logged in to keep us updated! Congrats on the engagement! I know exactly what you mean by car time goes away when real life is exciting. Hopefully you’ll keep us updated!

Will, I totally forgot about Mark, who was building the rally cb. I think he gained a couple inches on the clearance to with using the crv parts. Here is is MR: http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthre...highlight=Cr-v

The CRV has the exact same wheel travel as the CB! All he did by swapping CRV springs and dampers was left the car unbalanced in ride frequency and improperly damped, but a higher ride height. I'd still wanna keep it low.
