Just got 2 new front tires on my r32 gtr and now I've noticed
the torque guage is moving up to 4%-8% under gently aceleration
and staying there while sitting at a constant speed. I am sure
It wasn't do this before, it used to move up only on hard aceleration
and dropped off after backing off. Is there something wrong ?

Same size tires all round 255/40 17s the rears do have 4000 miles on them though. Might try swaping them to see if that makes a difference.
Thanks

Yea mine used to do that all the time with 2 different types on tires front and back. Wouldn't worry about it mate. Gauges are poop anyway. Hahaha

Haha. Mines done it for 2 years and all is fine lol.

Got r888's all round now and it doesn't do it as much. Have heard even tire pressure's can affect it too ?

Haha?? It's not supposed to do it.. It can cause damage.. Not really a laughing matter.. Power shouldn't be getting sent permanently to the fronts..
