Primo: info

For those who don’t know, Primo is not affiliated with Honda Racing. They were one of the three dealerships that sold selected Honda cars along with motorcycles and scooters.

Very informative video for those who don’t know. Shout out to Midnight Garage!

The reason I rock the Primo banner is because it’s a sign of homage to that era of time (I’m always reminiscing like Kei Miura reminisces about his Yancha days. I miss that shit too). Also cars that had their banner in racing (which Primo did sponsor some cars), were bought brand new, (the first EG was sold at the end of 1991, releasing as a 1992 model) and the banner was placed for competition use.

Translation:
Attention!
Cannot be used on public roads
Competition-specific parts

That’s another homage to that; as if I bought the car brand new with the banner already install, stripped and gutted the interior, and took it out for some shredding (just like the Kanjozoku’s did with this chassis and took it to the track and Loop).

Fun fact: cars that had the Eikoh! Stickers had their suspension and/or muffler.

Long live those days, cuz if your mind can go there, then why can’t you?

Wack lyrics

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.

Oem on top and H&R springs on Kyb shocks on the bottom. it rides smooth!

Here is an interesting find I came across:

OEM from factory on the left and OEM replacement on the right. I guess you have to cut it regardless even if you stay stock height.
No biggie, measure the OEM bump stop and cut the new one to size. Always have the taper facing down, or toward the shock body I should say. In this case start by cutting the top of the bump stop. Btw the oem bump stop was stuck in the metal cup shield. I had to lube it up and pry it out. Then beat it down like a prisoner in Sing Sing does to his meat in his cell…
Spring comparison. Bout the same size but of course the H&R gives you that 1.5 inch/40mm drop.

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. ✌️

Yo, have you

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.

That’s how it look at a quick glance.

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.

Super EGG

Full FLEX! 💪
All the homies I grew up with always seen me in my hatch. They told me they can’t picture me driving anything else. But yo, the RA1 suits me! It’s a bigger version of an EG imo.

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 don’t have to be the one to tell you that coming across RA chassis parts stateside is hard to come by, but damn! We need something like this at a local shop near you!
If I had the 4WD model I would definitely do this!

I have some well needed parts coming in for Ivan. Stay tuned!

Incarnate

The return of God Hands

Around the end of last year God Hands made its return to the streets and circuit…

Shortly after its return, the car suffered some damage at a track event…

Off to repairs…

Some of the body parts are from a donor car that’s very identical to God Hands.

Vinyl removal

What I find funny is that, a day before he removed the decals, I removed mine as well…

Sanding down the body
Current state

What will God Hands incarnate next?
