old school but really fast
i know it was your car had a corsa c sri black i was parked in the main car park bit the lad in the green burg on here ?
yeah was a good turn out considering it was a Wednesday meet
Very into my honda scene had a 99 facelift ek9 myself.
Just so you know that isnt a mugen lip. I think it could be a charge speed lip.
Also yours isn't an official lightweight n1 base car as they came without tints and standard ej9 interior as in no recaros. I think yours has been specd with some of the n1 base options.
Looks so mint and makes me miss mine more everyday!
That's why it looks like a Charge Speed as the body shop filled in the slots for some reason.
Also - I was told by the import/export dealer it's a lightweight. Apparently there was 4 versions made -
N1 spec - stripped out racecar with roll cage standard
RaceBase - stripped out with no cage
Lightweight - full trim, no airbags, no abs, no electric windows etc
Rx - full spec with all extras
This is info I've heard from many people, can only say what I've been told I would have said it was an N1 or a RaceBase if I thought it was...
does it not say on the logbook what model it is?
find a japanese speeking person on the forum that can translate it
^^^ Don't mess with this kid!
I thought your car was a heavyweight Matt...
:lol: yeah it's well heavy! Can barely move its that heavy
So the '9 went in for some spraying today at a mates bodyshop. The bumper vents are meant to be black but were white after the installation of the Mugen lip.
Really happy with it, finishes off the front end nicely!

Nice result mate.

The race base and N1 are the same car the race base N1 ek9 comes with the following
No tints with lighter thinner glass
No electric windows
Standard steering wheel (not the MOMO one)
This was designed for the race teams who wanted to buy it as basic as possible to build to their own spec
The RX model was only the 2000 models and came with alloy pedals and red stitching on gear gator and I think different stereo, was made a plusher model
Then there where options for people to have things taken off like yours has windy windows and Im guessing like you said no PAS and ABS? But lightweight glass was a standard on all ek9s.
The lip looks wierd without the gaps in.
Glad you did the little grills black again.
Get yourself on ek9.org all the info of all the specs they did.
Does look better with the black mate!
I am on EK9.org & the guy I bought it off who's sold hundreds of Honda's told me it is a lightweight. Only quoting that. Not looking to get into debate over what my car is, not really bothered tbh.
I'm NOT saying it's a RaceBase, I'm saying its a lightweight.
There is RaceBase, Lightweight & Rx from what I have read & been told.
