Daily JDM Word: Ichi-Go!

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.

Daily JDM Word: Maru-Meh!

WOTD 2018.3.27 (marume) FIN

Today’s word 丸目/MARU-MEH (round headlight) is comprised of the characters 丸/MARU (round) and 目/MEH (eye), often used as a nickname for such cars including the New Age/Bug-Eye Impreza, as well as the early DC2 Integra.

MARU-MEH written:
* in Kanji (丸目)
* in Hiragana (まるめ)
* in Katakana (マルメ)

Other related words include:
涙目/NAMIDA-MEH = Tear Eye (e.g. Blobeye Impreza)
鷹目/TAKA-MEH = Hawk Eye (e.g. Hawkeye Impreza)
横目/YOKO-MEH = Side/Long Light (e.g. Kouki DC2 Integra)
4灯/YON-TOH = Four Light (e.g. Zenki DC2 Integra)
6灯/ROKU-TOH = Six Light (e.g. Dangun DC2 Integra)

BTW: the Casablanca Impreza also has some MARU-MEH…they were not popular and are sometimes sold for next to nothing…like this example, which is probably the cheapest “Good Buy or Goodbye” we’ve found so far!
