What's so special about it?
More than 40mph
0% safety rating
1,800 to 2,200 lbs.
I don't understand why people love the CRX but hate the Del Sol.
Both came with B16 engines, high revving and powerful enough to be fun, double wishbone on all 4 corners, both are relatively light, with the Sol being 100 kg (220 lbs) heavier but the Sol had power steering and ABS and a huge trunk space. It just seems more practical than a CRX, while sacrificing very little of the fun factor. It also has a better interior.
Is the chassis rigidity issue really that bad for the Del Sol? Is there no way to fix it?
Don't hate it. I prefer a EG6 cause I want space for frens and goyslop.
Because of the time it came out.
Toyota had the MR2 with a mid engine rwd layout.
While the Del Sol clearly took a note on the design cues, yet remained grocery getter fwd layout. Especially when you consider the Honda had the NSX with the same general style (albeit less pronounced) be mid engine rwd.
People wanted an affordable baby NSX
As far as I know it’s hated because the normal CRX just looks so cool in comparison. I’ve seen some intense Del Sols with swaps and turbos added. But I’ve never been in one or researched enough about them to say.
>Is the chassis rigidity issue really that bad for the Del Sol? Is there no way to fix it?
Yes, the answer is to never take the top out or buy a tubular brace to put in while it's out.
Also, the CRX was far more practical with its huge covered storage area and locking compartment as well as 2 more unlocked ones on either side in the USDM models. EDM and JDM versions had back seats.
>I don't understand why people love the CRX but hate the Del Sol.
Bcause of aesthetics.
CRX looks great, Del Sol looks like shit.
Delsol was more expensive and less practical. People used to like it ages ago for tuning as well but now it has just aged poorly.
I hated these at first but they grew on me.
would need some sort of sideskirts and front fender lip to take out some if the eggyness
Looks like an MR but isn't. Pretending to be something you're not is gay, same reason all the other "sporty" FWDs like the Celica, FTO, AE92+ Levin/Trueno/etc, Dodge Daytona, Probe/MX6, and so on get used up and forgotten rather than being kept around like RWDs sporty cars. Extends to stuff that isn't trying to be sporty too, people actually like and want the 91-96 B bodies but all the other retarded FWD dogshit GM pumped out at the time has already rusted away and been crushed and nobody cares or wants one save for the few diehard 3800 nerds left.
Are these things absurdly tiny? I saw a guy riding in a really tiny rwd convertible honda the other day and I don't know what it was
honda beat if he was on the right side of the car
that or s2000
honda s660 maybe? del sols are rougly miata sized, the s660 is 30 cms (a foot) shorter
Looks good, doesnt weigh much, amazing aftermarket, fun with a few simple mods, so easy a child could work on it, cheap (not so much anymore)
It was fairly affordable, good mpg, was light, and had decent storage space. Tuners went to it because it's suspension was good, it was low weight, and it shared a lot with other hondas.
its biggest downfall was wheelbase. you could autocross or do some micky mouse shit, but anything mid to high speed was sketchy af.
Everyday honda fans get constantly fucked in the ass by honda not offering any affordable rwd sporty models so the fans who can't afford s2k or nsx latch onto any of the sporty looking fwd shitboxes and put them on a pedestal.
>who can't afford s2k
Shouldn't the average american enthusiast be able to afford it? If you can dish out 30k for an 86 you may as well get an s2k.
>you may as well get an s2k.
S2k doesn't have a fake engine noisemaker or McDonald's, not worth 30k.
honda also fucked their fans again by making their cheapest rwd a gay convertible instead of a real car.
So their fans are in the unenviable position of either getting an nsx or pretending the crx and del sol are good.
>convertibles are gay
Fat bald hairlet detected.
Are you seriously going to pretend convertibles aren't gay? The only thing fags love more than getting their asshole fisted, touching kids and stds is convertibles.
It was the perfect 1st car, light, affordable, great on gas, great handling, easy to make power, dead simple, reliable, and good trunk space
The only people I've seen who tried to say convertibles are gay all were balding or bald, if anything women prefer guys with convertibles
>The only people I've seen who tried to say convertibles are gay
Literal fags voted miata the gay car of the year like 20 times. The s2000 is just a more expensive, heavier miata.
That's not because it's a convertible, that's because the Miata is round and inoffensive, same reason the Alpine A110 was voted the 2019 European Gay Car of the Year
It's a double wishbone car that weighs nothing and is cheap anon, there's not much too it, that's why people like it, for what it doesn't have, no power anything, no sound deadening, barely anything for impact beams, you can actually see out of the bitch, and because it weighs nothing, yoy actually get the same or better fuel economy than a brand new car without some ridiculous engineering or a hybrid drive train.
We went backwards.
My uncle had one and then someone stole it, after that he bought an Integra GS-R and someone stole that too.
Can never have nice things.
It was featured in enough videogames for people to remember it as being a good car.
fuel efficient (esp. when stock)
everyone from the time has seen one, driven one, wrecked one, or owned one. everyone remembers the cute little crx's. it's a nostalgia hit for them.
torsion bars are cooler
>What's so special about it?
it's light. that's about it. it's a gay ass car for homosexuals.
