one of these days ill get the car apart and get my front camber adjustable arms in
Doooooo Eeeeeeet NAO!
So the upper arms are still on my shelf, my jack is shot so i cant get the car up
But i did change the tired steering wheel leather out for a redline goods wrap
gave the car a thorough detail and paint correction
and took a picture that just made me happy
you have harbor freight near you? Mine has been working great since I purchased this -
i do have a harbor freight nearby, been holding off going in there cause i have no money (grad school) and still have to deal with that gravel driveway. I think a bottle jack might be a better call for the gravel driveway but i also only have a year left in school and really should be working on that not getting under the car
hah, I get it. That one may not be great to use in gravel like you said too
Oh man, do you know the driver of the Silver accord? Me and him are good buddies. We were in the accord game together. He has come a long way from that pic haha.
no i dont know him, just happened to find the pic when i was trying to see how the sport wheels would look on the car.
I like the TL-s wheels more though, gain the extra width with almost no weight gain per wheel, the sport wheels are heavy as hell
so this happened today
now i need help, alignment is happening monday, but im not sure what specs i should go for. Right now front camber is sitting close to 0, i have the potential to go up to -1.5 according to the adjustment bolts. Rear suspension is pretty much fixed cause i couldnt get the camber arms out a couple years ago
@Nix @squiggy HELP!
The car looks great! I was just thinking the other day I should have bought a v6 6 spd accord
redshift has a list of suggested settings for various driving conditions here that's helpful -
Put the front camber just over -1. If they can get both sides even to -1.2/-1.3 or so it will help a ton. You shouldn't get too much tire wear from it either. Going to the full -1.5 isn't that much more of a stretch. For the once a year dragon run, maybe run a little less for the DD stuff. I run -1.2F, wear seems fine and it helps not kill the outer shoulder.
EDIT: If you're running "soft" all seasons I would go the full -1.5. You'll put more wear on those tires in the upcoming weekend than you will in a year of normal driving.
im on the conti extreme contact dws tires so yea theyre kinda soft
I'd pump some extra air in those things. They have crazy soft sidewalls
Yeah. I'm not doing those again with the sidewalls as they are.
I've got the revised dws06, I keep them up around 40 but I think the sidewall is firmer than the original dws tires
Watch the "cupping" with the high PSI. I wrecked my RE-11's running 35psi continuously on the Civic. The shoulders are fine and the centers are run down. I'm shocked to be honest but man, yea, -1.5 and run recommended PSI unless you're at the Dragon. Check hot/cold down there. They gain a lot of pressure from the heat. Your car is heavy + power. I bet you end up over 40psi if you run close to 35 cold.
I drove this car at the dragon, it was magnificent, a sportbike had to pull off and let us go.....how embarassing.
@sonej4 has some video footage of the Accord dancing around the dragon.
But would a sportbike had to pull over if @ethlar was driving?
only if i had the headlights on
