    After some delays with shipping and everything the play has finally arrived. Now I have to wait for the prototype spacer to arrive from T89 to move forward. One step closer

    Re: Frantik's Green Monster - Past, Present & Future

    So its been a while happy new years. Small date on my car. Over the holidays I had some time to put the it back together enough for transportation I also dropped the motor because it was in there with one mounts and I need to make room for to work in stuff like the first cross member, finish the down pipe/exhaust and anything else I may come across. Also had time to source some of the hardware needed for the at be plate and mate it together. But nobody cares about A2B anyways. Enjoy the world's first a2b awd mock up. Yes I know it's a automatic transmission but same dimensions for the manual and I had a spare from one of my crv's.

    A2b definitely. Awd probably not. If I find a transmission at a good price I'd definitely pull the trigger due to the fact that you can get the shift fork swap so fwd gear sets will fit in side awd case now. It definitely opens the possibility and I wouldn't want to limit my options. But fitting the transmission isn't the hardest part of the awd swap. How to fit a rear diff in the rear would be the hardest part. Its mostly because it's the only b series I have laying around for mock up that's not in a vehicle so I dosen't hurt. I'll tell you this much for those worried about weight this thing setup is not joke.

    AWD = 4WD, right? l mean, they try to make it sound all fancy-like but it's still a basic 4WD setup.

    Yeah but but on a Honda is not really 4wd because the is no shift in to 4wd. It's a real time system so the front wheels have to spin 1 and in half rotation before the rear diff kicks in. Theres s tone of work around so it more of a all the time awd setup. But awd setups are all the rage I'm the Honda world so parts are crazy expensive now. Luckily I have a couple crvs to play with

    I wonder how they make that work. I hear all these pixie dust claims about torque splitting diffs and computerized traction control at each wheel and all this razmataz, then I wonder how they make it work with old-style 4WD hardware. I have a sneaking suspicion that all these fantasmical AWD systems are nothing more than old style 4WD setups with a fancy set of brakes that slow you down when you get too crazy. On a 2WD car, they call it traction control and everyone hates it. Add another diff and it somehow turns into Aladdin's lamp? I guess if you have computers and you're going to tune 4WD for road handling, then you're allowed some leeway to name it something different. Still it seems disingenuous to describe in the fairy tale terms they do. I'm not bagging on AWD categorically, just suspicious of all the marketing claims fluttering around. Maybe I'm missing something?

    So yeah something like that. The diff has clutch disk is it and use fluid pressure to activate them once the driveshaft spins to fast it kick the diff into action. It all mechanical not ecu to anything. There are work around like the viscous coupler from the wagovan. Also you can swap the rear diff as well because its a normal geared diff instead of the clutch packs that are in the crv stock. Bisimoto new wagovan has a modified version of the crv that has upgraded clutch disk and a ramp up upgrade that makes it the awd system more responsive. I've been doing a tons of reading about it because I plan to upgrade the system on mine for better soft roading experience.
