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