Front Torque Meter

Recommended Posts

i have recently purchased a gtr 34 vspec and just wondering how the torque meter gets its reading? my seem to break traction a bit too easy with cat back and abit more boost and some shitty brand new tyres. Car has gone in today and get it back on fri getting a new heavy duty clutch and lighter flywheel installed and just wondering if the transfer case gives the reading wen it pushes the front wheel or if the transfer case was not working will it give a reading at all ?

i just want to make sure my transfer case is working... i am new to gtr 1st gtr i have owned!!

Front guards do get some black marks like the rear marks when it feels like its wheel spinning so ne info would be great thanks guys

Didn't you PM me recently? :)

I think your been too paranoid, the GTR traction system isn't perfect, its designed to lose the rear a little before the front kicks in on a corner.

The front torque gauge shows that the transfer case is engaging the front wheels from memory...

There are numerous threads detailing how the ATTESSA AWD system works. Try reading them to determine if yours behaves the same or not.

    • OK, buy MSD. You be the guinea pig. It's not as if 6x$95 is all that much more than $470 anyway.
    • Mega effort mate well done.  If it makes you feel better... - My new front and rear mains leaked immediately, meaning I had to redo timing again and remove gearbox to replace.  - When testing the rear main ws good I had the selector cables off the box (box in neutral, no drive shafts in) but there was enough vibration for it try and grab a gear at idle speeds and it spat the diff shims out, so box had to come out again... There's always "something". 
    • Oh that is my favourite, done it more than once
    • Can't forget them. Have spent the better part of the last 2 years in Bunbury. Any longer and I would have to get one of each.
    • Hit it hard last night, was in the shed till 2:30am. Had to get everything ready to try fit engine today as neighbour is going away tomorrow. This happenned today      Was going smoothly, till it wasn't. Had to lower the sway bar, remove engine mounts to get the engine to its spot and then refit everything. Head drain also created some clearance issues but got there in the end. Some idiot put the drain return on the sump virtually where the engine mount is. Hose fits on but is less than ideal, going to have to revisit it and fit a 90° fitting. Had some hiccups last night too with getting the flywheel and gearbox on. Firstly forgot the sandwich plate, so had to remove clutch and flywheel again. Then gearbox went on smoothly but then realised new block has an alignment dowel in the same spot as gearbox. GB off again to remove said dowel. Cnut. Anyway, it's in now. AC and PS pumps refitted, tail shaft bolted up as well. Left to do is reconnect all harnesses and plugs. Looks like a big mess ATM. Fit dump pipe, radiator, shifter, intake piping and associated bits, air box fill, afluids and hopefully fire it up. Looks like couriers please has lost my break in oil again. Useless pricks. Looks like I'll just get whatever mineral oil is on special at super shit auto. Hopefully it will actually run after all this or I'm going to burn it, lol.
