Question CB7 Feature on High-Performance Handling Handbook

Hey guys,

I recently acquired a High-Performance Handling Handbook by Motorbooks Workshop by Don Alexander...and guess what...they have a feature on how to modify a CB7 and in it they talk about how well CB7's react to specifically suspension mods.

So I thought i'd scan it and post it up so everyone can read. Another one for the CB7's !!!

btw here's the book info:

Book Series: Motorbooks Workshop
Title: High-Performance Handling Handbook
Author: Don Alexander
Published date: 2002
ISBN-13: 978-0-7603-0948-3
ISBN-10: 0-7603-0948-5




yeah the pics are going to be big; dial-up ppl be careful ur modem might explode
read on:












question: is this CB7 a member of this site?...anyone know of this car?...its worth a shot.

yeah man...wide tires look really good on CB's...in order to close up the fender gap, u can run wider tires instead of dropping the car that much...

with my 16x7.5" and 35mm offset, i have about 2" wheel gap with the fender, but it doesn't seem like that much.

the color...seems to be a darker color...a green, or a blue for sure, could also be that maroon color.

yeah man, .93g's is better than the 06 bmw m3's whose skidpad is around .88...pretty good for a FWD family car.

you can give B&G a call, their tech service will probably give u the spring rates, or at least tell you an approximate increase in the spring rates.

I wonder what size tires they went with... those look like 205/40s

And the Accord is a very fun car, even stock. I remember a few incidents on the stock suspension where I either entered a four wheel drift under braking or got a little off-throttle kickout... good times. With a modded suspension though I'd rather have it be neutral with a little understeer as having the back snap on 300# springs is a recipe for disaster.

The CB was definitely ahead of its time. When it came out in 1990 it had one of the most advanced rear suspensions in the world... it was the first car w/ non-fluted headlights... and even today it doesn't look 17 years old (at least not the 92-93s)...

Hey!...whats wrong with 90-91's....they don't look that old either...if u take care of the rust problem

They used 215/40-R17 Continental Sport Contact, b/c the 215/45-R17 wouldn't clear the fenders with the wide wheels and offset.

Can anyone compare the ride and quality difference between Tokico Illumina's and Koni Yellow's?

starchland may have said something they shouldn't have...
awesome thank you! I remember the surprise when finding this in Chapters, I read it in store because I was too cheap to buy the book.

i like my 90 but for some reason 92-93's look different in terms of front end.
i mean...all they changed was the front number, headlight and grill...*shrugs*
but it looks fucking sexy and i want it.

Now I'm sad, yet hopeful.
I really want to get a 9293 EX in great stock shape, then just do suspension and new audio. My LX needs more body work than I can handle :P
