    Time to test drive the car before replacing the Front Brake Disc.


    After the brake pedal kick back issue was improved by replacing the Right Drive Shaft and wheel speed sensor, I was hoping to completely solve this by working on the Left side…

  2. Wheel Speed Sensor and Drive Shaft 07

    Unless your NSX is for the track day only, you need soft viscosity but strong oil film for the manual transmission oil.

    Unlike other Gbox, not all of the gears are submerged in the oil on our NSX.

    It circulates the oil by the built-in oil pump which is operated by the Final Driven Gear and spot showers the oil to each component through the hollow shafts so soft viscosity is the key factor until it warms up.

    Started to refurbish the drive shaft.


    Due to the excessive corrosion at the wheel speed trigger teeth, outer joint had to be replaced and I bought used complete drive shaft from my friend.

    It looked fine from outside but when I opened the Inner Joint and inspected it, one of the roller was cracked.


    Because ...
