Although this will not caused issues such as the torque steering in front-wheel-drive cars, what caught our attention is the thing that causes the unequal length drive shaft in the NSX – an extra component attached to the transmission/rear differential (highlighted in red in the below image).

All-New 2016 Honda Pilot Official Images Released

Honda is going to reveal the redesigned 3rd generation Pilot SUV in tomorrow’s Chicago auto show, and it released the official images just half an hour ago.


We will wait for the official press release to get more detailed specs.

This is concluded from the omission of the transmission shifter, which is replaced by the push selection buttons.
