Daily JDM Word: Kajyuu-Idoh!

WOTD kaijyuuidoh FINToday’s word: 荷重移動/KAJYUU-IDOH, is comprised of the words 荷重/KAJYUU (weight/load) and 移動/IDOH (transfer/shift).  During 減速/GENSOKU (deceleration), especially when フルブレーキング/FURU-BUREIKINGU (full braking) is applied, the weight of the vehicle will drastically shift towards the フロント/FURONTO (front).  On the other hand (you have different fingers), the weight will naturally shift to the リア/RIA (rear) during  加速/KASOKU (acceleration), and more prominently so if the アクセル/AKUSERU (gas pedal) is at 全開/ZENKAI (full throttle).

KAJYUU-IDOU written:
* in Katakana = カジュウイドウ
* in Hiragana = かじゅういどう
* in Kanji = 荷重移動

** Be careful not to confuse KAJYUU with KAIJYUU, which are giant and usually destructive monsters/beasts such as Godzilla, Mothra, King Kong, George, Lizzie and Ralph.
