So shortly after making the Super Egg post, my shocks started leaking. I went ahead and purchased all the parts I need and also did research on a RA1 “forum” on a social media platform. That shit is wack yo. But it shows not a lot of people know anything when it comes to this chassis. Everyone just wants to slam it, and that’s coo cuz it looks good; there’s research on that. But no real info if you don’t wanna ride so low. Everyone throws in China made coil-overs and calls it a day, but nah I’m good off of that. But anyway, here is the before and after pics.
Here is an interesting find I came across:
I also went ahead and installed the new steering wheel combo:
Then I threw on the Mcleans and fender stripe!
Ivan drives way better now, so smooth and can still take an impact on bumpy roads. I’m really happy with a shock and spring combo and not following the trend. Don’t follow what everyone else is doing, that’s wack lyrics. Shout out to the ones who test different suspension combos even if it’s from another car. Be lyrical and drive in your own lane. ✌️
Ever hit 130mph with a wheel this size?
92-95 Civic VX wheel. 13×5 OEM Wheel made by Enkei. Light as fuck. Well of course, you already know that, and you know this. I rocked that set up for the majority of the time I owned my car! T speed rating. 😅
But yea , anyway. I wanna say I was around this area so you tell me what speed I was at.
Imagine, some people are used to that speed, plus some; and they stay up there too! Wangan Runners, Canon Ball Runners, Hardcore Street Runners, etc. I hit around there a few times only. Even back in the day when me and Tougel ran our Loop; I hit 110ish, and even that was rare. What’s the fastest you hit and how long have you stayed there? Whole different world isn’t it? That was the last time I ever went that fast, and I plan on keeping it that way.
And Buddha Driven
As much as this looks good:
I enjoy being at stock height. The fact that I can hit a pot hole and still be ok gives me a peace of mind. But for sure sometime in the future I will prob change out the springs.
I have some well needed parts coming in for Ivan. Stay tuned!
What is Kanjyo you ask? Here is a friendly reminder from my good friend Franck
And this is also kanjyo
Story of my motherf***in’ life!
Only a few outside of Osaka can relate…!
Very subtle, practical and a good man cave for solitude. The music is the cherry on top 🍒
