Hi all

Just a question regarding my factory front torque gauge. So i take off in 1st gear and the needle will move then..........but not anytime after that!?
I remember when i drove an R32 gtr the gauge in that moved alot so maybe mine is faulty?

Any help or opinions would be great

The gauge only comes up when the front wheels engage. So you'd have to do something to have the computer engage them. Launch the car and keep it pinned through to third. Mine has all 4 wheels the whole time doing this with the gauge up to 10 (whatever the heck that means) through second and third.

They oversteer anyway, even with the 4wd working at capacity.

Mine does the same thing. So if I bleed up the system then the 4wd should engage more often?

Not more often. It will just engage better.
