Daily JDM word: Choi-Biki

WOTD 3.23.2018 (choi biki) 2
Today’s word: ちょい引き、comprised of ちょい/Choi(slight) and 引き/Hiki, which is the the noun form of the verb 引く/Hiku (to pull).  When Hiki/Hiku and other words starting with the H sound are combined with a previous word, the H sound (hiki) changes to a B (biki).  Choi-Biki most often refers to a quick/slight pull on the handbrake to upset the rear traction and initiating a drift.

ちょい/Choi is a useful adjective, and can be used in other situations including:
* ちょい踏み/ Choi Fu-mi: slight pedal press (accelerator or brake)
* ちょい下げ/ Choi Sa-geh: slight drop/lowering
* ちょい乗り/ Choi No-ri: short hop/quick errand, as opposed to 通勤/Tsuu-kin (commuting)
