SWDubs Glossary

This page will act as a guide to the language used on the Swdubs forum and blog that may not be familiar to most other people out there on the internets.

This page will be updated by the Authors of the blog on a regular basis to try and make sure that it is as up to date with the current slang being used by our members.


To drive a car on the edge of its limits. “I went out for a cain last night, it was awesome”.

Chassis Notching:

When a section of the chassis is removed from the car so that the driveshaft does not impact it when the car is lowered a lot. An example.

Engine Raising:

When a car is very low you can try to save on a new weekly sump by raising the engine slightly, normally this is done by putting spacers on the engine mounts to move the whole engine up slightly.


The noise of somebody shining their helmet while looking at something enjoyable on the internet. “That picture is totally fap-worthy”.


Slang for female genital. “I bet she has an stinky gammon”.


A notorious & controversial forum member, who’s only contribution to the site involved winding everyone up. Particularly fond of BigSi, ABM & Edge, he is now banned, but still prone to making the odd appearance under various aliases.

Martyn Stance:

Another term for ‘reverse rake’. “I’d be careful mate it looks like your car has been stanced by Martyn”.
Note – For some members of the forum reverse rake is akin to killing babies and they will mercilessly take the piss and hate you for it. You have been warned.

Peeping Tom:

An image of  photographer Tom Edge, found in random places. Originally photoshopped into the occasional image on the forum, Tom has now migrated to several strategic real-world positions – including the back of a number 38 bus & the top shelf of the children’s book section in a branch of a well known high street store.


What happens to your anus after meeting some of the more ‘happy’ SWDubs members. It is also the term for putting a skinnier tyre onto a wider wheel than you normally would. This is often done to allow cars to run wider wheels while still managing to get the tyre tread under the arch and staying legal.


When a member, usually Olly or Ash, get excited or enraged about something and lose the ability to spell ‘The’. “Why teh fuck have you lowered it that much?1?!?!”
