These are the rules. Read them. Live by them.

1) Absolutely NO flaming! "Flaming" is an outright attack on a member. ALL questions are encouraged to be asked here, no matter how basic. Members with over 30 posts will be subject to a ONE WEEK ban if caught flaming in this forum (and yes, moderators can read deleted posts). Members with under 30 posts will be subject to a ONE DAY ban.

2) Use appropriate language. Racial or sexual slurs will not be tolerated. A ban will be issued at the discretion of the staff.

3) No items may be sold in the Beginner forums. Any "for sale" threads will be deleted.

    Powered rear hub..... Sounds like someone is tempting to go AWD


      Finally found some time at work to swap over the Odyssey knuckles, couldn't have been easier to do. I don't have the rear hubs yet so the overall look is... interesting right now, I should be going to get them tomorrow. Also changed out the bumper indicators and turn signals to clear units, stripped the terrible smoke paint on the headlights. Anyway, I'm going to be running these wheels with smaller tires, the ones in the picture are just the ones the wheels came with. Also got my one piece JDM headlights in the mail, going to wait to put those on though.

        Went and got the MDX rear suspension today! It's as I expected, Honda recycled dimensions, the length from the center of the body mount to the center of the first set of holes for the hubs are identical from Accord to MDX, and the bolt pattern is identical too. An MDX trailing arm will fit directly onto a CB7's rear spindle and it also goes the other way. The only caveat is that the distance from the mounting holes on the hub to the center of the hub itself is longer on the MDX, but that can be fixed fairly easily by sectioning the trailing arm by the same amount (not much)


          how soon are the plans for the k in your future?

            Honestly not too sure when I'll get to doing the engine stuff, maybe over the winter? I want to get the rear sorted out first, as it's the most critical part of what I want to do.

            Anyway, things went well today, everything kind of just worked out the way I wanted. Everything was quickly tacked up to see how it'd all work, so it's not pretty or finished. I shortened the trailing arm (need 1cm more), and modified one of the Megan toe arms to accept the MDX knuckle. Mounted it all and it looks like it'll work, the only permanent modification so far would be mounting the MDX upper control arm to the frame, which I haven't done yet, and consequently why the knuckle looks like stance nation's greatest hits at the moment. I'm going to have some thick aluminum spacers made to lower the subframe to level out the lower control arm at ride height.


              So I took my MDX and SPC arms and dissected them to make my own adjustable upper control arm, mounted that to the chassis and hey presto it functions perfectly with no binding. The only part I haven't figured out yet is how to mount the coilovers so they aren't in the way of the (future) axles, for now they rest on bolts so I can roll the car around, but I have an idea on how to tackle that later. Now that I have a working proof of concept I can go back and refine/strengthen each part before doing the other side.


                This is inventive and moving at an impressive pace.


                  It's been a while, a while of gathering information that is. The pandemic hit me financially but I'm still on track to do this, I have a K24 ready to rebuild! I still need to figure out what trans tunnel and trans I'm going to use, I was thinking Miata or BMW, CD09 would be too big. Yesterday I just spent some time power washing the loose grime off the car and somewhat detailing the engine bay, felt good to tinker with it again.


                    Nice! Your car reminds me of a buddy of mine's that he had back about 10 years ago. He got an OBX intake and exhaust and it really woke the car up and was fun to drive. Can't wait to see the progress--keep it up!


                      Every few weeks or so I get the itch to build another one, and this thread isn't helping. Keep up the excellent work.
                      The Lord watches over me!

                        So it's going to be RWD? We've seen a couple attempts of that on the forum. Personally I think it's pointless, I'd just get an E30 and K-swap for basically the same end product, but I really hope you don't lose interest in finishing! This is too cool.


                          I believe he is going AWD not RWD.

                            There's that guy on youtube I've seen recently who did the AWD to a CB7. But he hacked the whole bottom back end out and put a frame in there to make everything fit / work. Used the civic transfer case (modified) to fit the H22.
                            Jesus, this is something my turbo needs haha, but far too much hacking for me.
