We're back, and better than ever!

Hey everyone. Weíre back!

We spent the last few weeks getting our software upgraded from 2005-spec vBulletin to this shiny, new version. For the first time in half your CB7ís life, is running up to date forum software! 😃
We sought to keep the same general feel, along with our beloved black and orange color scheme. You may see some things changing here and there as we make some aesthetic tweaks, but all should be running smoothly now.

In addition to looking all fancy, this new version should be extremely mobile friendly. Hopefully that will make it more enjoyable for those of you that do most of their browsing on their phone!

Pandemic and cp[mike] literally busted their asses over the last couple of weeks to make this new software a reality. Without them, this never would have happened.

So, welcome back!
Feel free to ask any questions, give us your observations, and offer suggestions (no promises on implementing anything, but who knows!) There's a post for discussion in the Beginner OT section of the site.
Also, if you experience any weird errors, please let us know ASAP. We tested everything pretty thoroughly, but Iím certain we havenít squashed all the bugs just yet.

Beginner Forum Rules - EVERYBODY read! (old and new members alike!)

Beginners start here. Once you have 30 worthwhile posts (off topic doesn't count) you may post outside of the Beginner forums. Any "whoring" (posting simply to raise your post count) will return your count to 0, or result in a ban.

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.

4) Temporarily banned members will be PERMANTLY banned if they are found posting on another account.

The rules can and will be added to. Any updates will be marked in the title.

The rules for the overall forum can be found here:
Read them. You will be expected to follow them.

    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.
