    Looking for 111 lbs. Does this look close?

    it looks like 121 to me.
    See where the little index lines come down from the 120 to the black indexer with the 1 on it , that should not be at 120 you might want to change that to read 110
    and then leave the 1 where it is on the black indexer.

      The 100 was visible before using the black dial.

        Maybe you would have to go to the 100 and then add the 11 with the black dial. as far as that goes even if you went to 100 with the bigger dial and then to 9 or 10 with the black would get you to 109 or 110. hope this helps.

          You should just have to rotate one full turn back to the one, and that should be 111 Ft/Lbs

            The numbers stagger side to side. 100 on the left, then 110 on the right and then to the one. Put your glasses on... LOL

              That looks like 121 to me. I would back it up all the way, find what i know is zero, give it ten turns to 100, study your marks, then add eleven.
              And dont forget to unwind all the tension off before you put it away.

                        Always use a wheel chock too. Then back over it when leaving.

                                  Man these modern cars. Only went to torque them due to a discussion on hellcat.org. The 2 piece monster Brembo front brakes make some kind of clicking sound. Mine don’t do that when moving. When coming to rest at a complete stop there is an occasional double click. Like some kind of reset or cycle. Does it once then not again til the next drive. I’m gonna call it a characteristic. For 21 the copper has been outlawed so the brakes are even larger to compensate. I think RC better go out to the garage and check on that new Daytona. I did use the socket he recommended to prevent scratches :).

                                    All honesty anything around what they recommend is ok 10 over isn't going to hurt anything. Tighter is better then loose !
                                    But your last picture looks like 111 to me !
