    Del Sol Vtec Question

    Hi Honda fans!

    Quick ?. Why are Del Sol VTECs not autocrossed as often as the Civic Si? Is the Del Sol suspension inferior to the Civic Si? If so how? I've read that the ZC 160 hp motor is often swapped into older Civic Sis so there must be a reason other than Del Sol styling.

    What do ya think?

    They tend to be more rare and therefore more expensive than your standard civic hatch.

    but this is the main reason...

    Del Sol S curb weight: 2295 lbs
    Del Sol Si curb weight: 2414 lbs
    Del Sol VTEC curb weight: 2522 lbs

    EG VX curb weight: 2094 lbs
    EG CX curb weight: 2108 lbs
    EG DX curb weight: 2178 lbs
    EG Si curb weight: 2390 lbs

    These are 92-95 specs.

    It's because only girls own Del Sols. :wink:

    it's also due to the fact that the rear window, although cool that it rolls down, literally cuts the chassis in half.. not good for strength.

    ^ yea that too. Ride around in one with a stiff suspension and you can hear the roof flexing and rubbing.
