A word that I tend to use when I myself am driving in a relatively speedy fashion is 'FLOATING'. For example, 'Your car was FLOATING going down the straight.'

Pssh, Dialed was so 2010...

My buggy is a "Threat" today.

My buggy feels "Good" or "Great". simple but effective...


On the flip side:


My buggy is a "Yardsale" waiting to happen.


A seemingly un-familiar term and introducing a few others:


Made a Clean Pass on that buggy and then promptly got "Tool-boxed" or "Train-wrecked" in the next corner by it.


"Bowling Ball"/ "Pin Ball"- buggy or truck: Where someone in a low-main qualifying spot, runs the field through the first corner like bowling pins; resulting in a "Yardsale" and then a re-start.

If our cars are hooked up, they are '1-800'.

If there is something wrong with a car, it's '9-1-1'.

Been using those for years to try and get off of the 'dialed' tip.

"Money"
"On Rails"
"Full Tilt"
"Singing" when referring to nitro
"Lethal"
"Stuck"

these are some of my favorites

Dialed can not be defined by not using the word dialed in the definition. Nothing can come close to dialed. Sounds wierd but it is the truth.

When I see someones car that seems to be getting around the track very well I generally tell them that their car looked "good" May not sound all that cool, but I guess I don't feel I need to try to act cool when the rest of the world see's us as adults that still play with toys
