    thanks man! We will be out at Daytona for championships in September and Hyperfest at vir in October if you can make it to either of those, you won’t regret it!

The rust is pretty bad and I want to address it, but I am a physics/mechanics guy, body work is not my forte.
    Yes, so glad I found it as clean as I did. No rust anywhere, and she was an Oregon wagon ....
    I guess the CB9 didn't rust in the quarters because unlike the CB7, there's no where for it to start ... no drip line system.
    I did have a fair amount of door dings and small stuff. Glad that I can be of inspiration, lol!

    Thanks, buddy. I'm hoping to find a little more weight this winter so I can throw a cool shirt system in the car without going way over weight. I plan to get Kingpin Machine to make sphericals for most of the front end, as I only have sphericals on the radius rods at the moment. It is unfortunately a bit of trial and error though, as I don't have the proper datalogging equipment yet to acquire the data I want... That and this isn't exactly the most popular race car platform in existence lol. The civic and teg guys have it much easier than us. I still need to upload my video from Oktoberfasts Saturday race also.

    I’ve gotten the car down to 2635 with driver. I did a lot of cutting the doors up. Also improved my personal best at VIR from a 2:16 something down to a 2:12.9 this season. It was an abbreviated season but hopefully next year we can keep up the momentum.

    looks like I’m shooting to run at Daytona twice next year in the wagon, definitely going to be epic. I need to make some changes to tire diameter or fifth gear or the final drive or something, otherwise I’ll be on limiter far too much.

    ^this may have something to do with why it fits as well as it does. I am running a slightly smaller diameter than stock tire. And its possible many guys say 225s rub because theyre running 17s or something and using a 26" tall tire.

    Does that make sense? Caffeine hasn't kicked in yet today.

    Yes, that makes sense. Forgot to ask about the offset of these. I've been running a 40 offset max.

    Love the racing vids. It is always entertaining to watch this car working over the more typical race modified Hondas.

    Thanks man. It really is the most fun I have in life. But its stock knuckles, ROH conversion with the 9899tl hub
    Then fast brakes machined the rotor hat to fit, used their supplier for rotors, FastBrakes caliper bracket and a wilwood superlite 6r. It is very tight, I had to move the wheel weights further in on the rim or they would hit the caliper.

    Can you comment on this. Do you rub on full turn? (on shock , on radius rod or upper body area). From my knowledge I always thought a 225 would rub on the fender and rub when doing a full turn. And having an 8" wide wheel would definitely run on a full turn. Your thoughts?

    New and sexy update

    I really appreciate the love from all of you guys that were answering my questions on here 11 years ago when I picked up my first CB7. I asked some really stupid questions before I bought my first car. I wanted to make sure the intake manifold on the accords were aluminum because I was 100% spraying it and had just watched a cobalt? explode its plastic intake with a back fire haha. (dont laugh too hard, I had never even seen an engine bay on a cb7 at this point lol)
    But anyway, I actually did put a 150 shot on my 200k mile f22a with a Zex wet kit and did some street car 1v1 racing on a short oval track, called Wacky Wednesday at Langley Speedway.
    My buddy wrecked my 92 coupe there and gave me the wagon shell and $500 for my trouble. And now here we are, I am setting up metal plate diffs instead of trying to confirm an intake is metal

    Thanks, man. I didn't make it out until this past weekend (9/12-9/13) but my god. With the new go fast parts I ran 2.5 seconds faster than my previous personal best and I battled it out with some of those B18C5 powered cars. I have a video up on youtube for that race, it was legitimately exciting https://youtu.be/UUrryBGV6m4

    Thank you mike. I definitely have gotten my fair share of info from misc stuff you have done. Feel like this is fitting of the metaphor "standing on the shoulders of giants." Definitely love to see yall still passionate about this chassis.

    you got me thinking about the brake master cylinder. does it come with a new reservoir cap or are you using the oem on it? later.
    I'm not sure I follow but I will try to answer. I am using the EM1 master cylinder. I bought it new from Honda with the reservoir and cap. And I am using the Honed Developments brake booster delete kit. I absolutely love the brake set up. It is super consistent and very easy to modulate.

    Thank you man. The car is now down to 2660 with 1/4 tank and me in it. More weight reduction to come.
    As for the front end, rules are quite specific and state that a splitter cant extend beyond the outline of the car when viewed from above. Well our bumper allows for probably the largest splitter in Honda Challenge. So I have a decently large blade I made from wood sheathing 13/32 iirc. Made a second one for when it breaks, which is also why its made out of a cheap material. And then I used some various stuff to make a semi flexible air damn to fill the gap.

    And yes, wang gang, big wang, etc. He absolutely does. It's a nice break from all the overly PC stuff lately. I really would like one of the "Big Wang Gang" hoodies he has.

    Here is what it looks like up front.








    So not all my info is super up to date and I will try to correct that as I have the time.
    But the "Big Wang" is absolutely awesome. The car is insane. I just beat my personal best at VIR by 2.5 seconds with 3 mods.

    Wang and home made front splitter
    Wilwood fronts
    and
    Still running 225/45/15 but now on a 8" wheel instead of 7" and it performs so much better. I will have better pics out once the awesome photographer with NASA posts his pictures, but for now I will share what I have!











    If you guys follow me on instagram or dm me on there, I have no problem adding some of you OG guys on facebook where I post most frequently about the car build at racing. Just DM and let me know your name.

    I just looked into Nine Lives Racing and they actually use the word "wang" when describing anything related to that part. Real R&D behind it, too, it looks like.
