Question for the 996 cab guys.

Would you guys be interested in a one-touch button to put the top up or down?

I know there are some products already out there like this but the least expensive one is around $150.

The only function of this product would be to able to press the Top-Up or Top-Down button once and have the top do it's thing. No operation while moving ( you can do that with the pin 18 mid if you really want to). It would be for the 996 Cab and 986.

So the question is:

Would you buy this, and if so, how much would you like to pay for it?

The prototype was a success! The poduct will be called Robo-Top!

I will place an order for the production batch tomorrow and I'll hopefully have the product in my hands and ready to sell by next Monday, but that depends on the manufacturer's shipping.

The website will be ready and released to you guys this Saturday.

I have an '03 and can currently open and close the top while moving. Would I lose that capability if it's already there?

While it's convenient, $150 is quite a high price to pay just to save a few seconds. And I can't do anything else anyway while the top in operation.

The price will be closer to half of that. And it is possible to operate the top while moving. Details will be on my website.

I'd be interested if I don't lose the capability of the top operation while moving. Sometimes I want to put the top up/down in slow traffic situations and having a stick shift makes this a bit challenging.

You will not lose that capability.

The boards were ordered this past week. Depending on the manufacture's production schedule and shipping time, it should be around 2 weeks until I will be able to sell.

I will release the website at that time.

I currently have the product operating in my car and I LOVE it.

I'm looking forward to the release of Robo-Top!

Thanks. Looks promising. That mod makes the top work as you'd expect it to. Can it stop opening or closing as well, e.g. for an emergency situation?

Absolutely.

So, what's the latest on these? Needing another winter project... If I wait too long, may have to Fiskerize my exhaust... :drive:

The manufacturer's shipping is taking far longer than I had planned, but they should be en route. I'll keep you guys posted on when they become available, which should be soon, but I won't know until they get here.

Thanks for your continued interest!

Can you provide any rough ideas as to installation details & level of difficulty? Thanks hilo!

Yes, installation could not possibly be easier. 1 out of 10 on the difficulty scale.

Is there a way to make this mod so that the windows don't fully drop when lowering the roof. That would speed up closing/opening significantly.

^^ I do not know of a mod that does what you're asking for.

Boards came in a few days ago. They will be assembled more than likely on Tuesday.

Robo-Top units will be available sometime later this week!

I'll release the website and details then!
