Car definitions section...
« on: 17 March 2008, 10:27 »
Can we possibly get a section where definitions for words etc can be read?
E.G- Whats a manifold? Catback?

And people can write their definition and it makes it easier for people like myself to understand the project threads without asking stupid questions.

Im not sure if this has been asked yet.

That would be a website in itself, and a huge one at that. If you don't know what something is, google it :tongue:

You could Google it.. But this is a car forum so I assumed it would be a nice extra. I mean. If we can get a "spotted" section. Why not one of these?

I fail to see how a spotted section relates to this. What you're asking for is a technical definition and explanation of basically every component used to build a car, for which there are far better existing resources available than something we could write or compile.

No. You misunderstood what I am asking for.

I dont want a "What every part of a car does" section. JUst a section where the most common words with relation to Golfs can be kept. You go into the MK1 section and try and understand half of what is said there... I dont.

I realise you could just google it. But it would be nice considering its a car forum  :embarassed:
