G. Wiffington is cool... so far.
Thanks guys!! It was totally unexpected. I almost spit out my drink when they
said my name over the speakers.

Grumpys93 yes I understand 100% what you mean..let me just say one thing

I probably won't bring my car to another event again..

as soon as the event was over I got word that other people with CD accords
were talking shit about how they lost to a basic 4 door with Pep Boy wheels lol.

This was the first event in so long that I have brought my car to. & honestly I
don't think I will bring it to Honda Day in the Spring. People are just so weird
about meets/events. I really did not even want to win anything at all. I literally
just pulled up to the event, wiped down my CB, popped the hood, & just ate
food all day lol. Like not even a half hour after the event other people in my
Accord class were saying they got dicked over by the judges..blah blah.

Anyway it was still so much fun to go.

There were only two other CB7s there & they were not really all that at all.

Oh well I just wanted to represent for CB7Tuner.com & I thought you guys
would appreciate a trophy for the whole page not just my car.

Being a member on CB7Tuner is so awesome. I am just glad that this site
is still so active & keeps me motivated!!!

Your issues may be caused by a bad rear subframe.

Congrats on the award! You were the only one there older than 97 weren't ya :P
Yeah I do actually remember reading about jacking up from that point is not
too good & can mess up the alignment.

Lol I need to get a better jack. That is legit the only reason why I had to
jack from that point. I have all the tools I could ever need, just a crappy jack lol.
I am going to buy a new one this weekend.

I actually forgot to post on here but I did get an alignment from my buddy
who works at Honda!

I had an issue about a year & a half ago when I went to Firestone to get
an alignment. The guy said that he could not adjust the toe anymore b/c
the steering rack was not centered. As well as the rear toe bolts were frozen

So about a month ago I climbed underneath & measure how far the steering
was off. It seemed that the rack was a little more favored towards the
passenger side making left hand turns very touchy & right hand turns
needing to turn the wheel a bit more. I measured & corrected the rack.

The rear: so as in my other posts I went under & had to cut out the
rear toe bolts because they were frozen. I also took time to install new
toe arms (rock auto ordered forgot the brand). New toe adjust bolts &
washers from Honda were installed.

Anyway, when I was doing the alignment at Honda on the rear toe, I could
only get the toe degree so far then I had to use the Megan Racing rear adjustable
lower control arms to get the toe into spec. I more so had to adjust the
MR control arm on the rear passenger side, which was the side I had an
issue with in the first place.

I have my sheets from both Firestone (1.5 years ago) & the recent one I did
at Honda. I will upload them.

But, after getting an alignment...WOW I have never felt sooooo comfy
driving winding roads in this car! Having a proper alignment feels so good
because I never have really ripped on the Euro-R because of how bad
the alignment was.


Raf99 I was surprised because one of the CB7s there was a 90/91!
Unfortunately it looks like it was spray painted.

I also have a pretty sweet update that I bought for my CB that I haven't
shown anyone yet!!!



Oh yeah, I was going through a lot of crap with this girl I was dating but,
I got rid of her & the nonsense & found myself a better girl without all
the craziness!!! So I think my head is back on straight & ready to get back
to where I was.

Before from Firestone:




Before taking to Honda I did the String Alignment as best as I could.

After from Honda:

& I also discovered that my front upper driver side control arm ball joint is
pretty bad. So, I think I will just upgrade the set to something nice.

Anyone have a good adjustable upper control arm to recommend?
I know I can search but I was just curious to what you guys have used.

Grumpys93 seems to have made some friends!
I have a set of SPC Adjustable upper ball joints never used only open. I was going to use them but decided to stick with my ingalls camber kit and buy new upper control arms. PM me if you are interested.
