Mine is at 120k - shows some stiffness on full lock but no skipping/skidding or odd tyre wear - should be good in the snow !
Yer test put 4kg x 1.4m x 9.8 = 55Nm torque on the 32mm nut.
This will take longer to turn when compared to say 8kg x 1.2m x 9.8 = 94Nm which is a higher torque.
The higher the torque the faster it turns, but only up to a certain point.
