1993 Honda Del Sol TransTop with JDM B16A SiR II Swap on polished XXR 521 with BYS Front aero
Music provided by : BeatFux
I always wanted to see a Transtop conversions since they where never made here brought to the United States. The Transtop was indeed an OEM option back in the 90's that was way ahead of it's time.
Check out this youtube video to see a full demonstration-
The del Sol transtop was standard on 92-95 del Sols in Japan, and was optional from the factory in every other country including Japan from 92-97. The US was one of the only countries to not get the del Sol CR-X in 1992.
The transtop is NOT available to add to your del Sol, as it requires almost every interior trunk chassis panel to be replaced to accommodate it. It would be easier to cut your Sol in half and weld on a JDM transtop rear section than to install and wire up a transtop piece by piece.
The transtop itself takes around 45 seconds to run it's cycle, which is 20 seconds longer than it takes to get out of your car and do it yourself.
It was never brought to the US for a few reasons. Obviously cost of maintenance is a big one. We're cheap over here, and none of us want to pay $200 to have their automatic top removed fixed because it stopped halfway up at a stoplight. Also, they were very problematic. They were plagued with motor, gear, and clip issues that would constantly stop the trunk mid cycle.
Overall, it is one badass idea that just didn't work out very well.
Stick with your car the way it is, and marvel at the transtop every time you get the chance to see one, but don't ever wish you had it yourself, for they were what brought the del Sol away from the splendor of actually being recognized as a CR-X.

Honda drag racing videos from the Battle of the Imports World Finals event at Fontana CA, 2008.

BOTI STREET COMP QUALIFYING 1ST ROUND:
Garage built RealTime 4WD Honda del Sol rally car by Eric Larsen from TLAR Engineering
This is on my top 5 all time favorite del Sol list. :-) Eric slowly built it over the years due to limited budget. The man's got talent. Moving forward in 2012 we hope to have him work with us at N1 Concepts. We'll be building lot of cool things together!!
Currently it is powered by a lowly bone stock B20B long block. It made something pathetic like 110 whp to the front wheels. More power soon!!
Half of the drive train is from Honda CRV and the other half is from the old EF Civic Wagon.
