Thanks.

If you say tranny in England people think you either mean a Ford transit van or a transsexual (person who changed there gender).

Not just Honda guys...

I'm Australian, and we shorten EVERYTHING, and/or put a y/ie/o on the end

So gearbox becomes 'box, transmission becomes tranny, distributor becomes dizzy, carburettor becomes carbie, differential becomes diff etc etc


I'm a walking encyclopedia/dictionary when it comes to car terms though, so if there are any doozies out there send them my way and I should be able to answer them.

afaik = as far as I know
idc = I don't care
afk = away from keyboard
prolly = probably

there are lots and lots more, don't know if I can sum them all up Razz

As for the above, as long as you don't shorten gearbox with boxxy Laughing
