when a saw "terms" I was thinking something like
WOT = Wide Open Throttle
TB = throttle body
LSD = limited slip differential
VLSD = viscous limited slip differential
is that what you mean?

WOT = Wide Open Throttle = when the gas pedal is on the floor
TB = throttle body = where the amount of air coming into the engine is regulated
LSD = limited slip differential = type of differential gear arrangement that allows for some difference in rotational velocity of the output shafts, but does not allow the difference in speed to increase beyond a preset amount.
VLSD = viscous limited slip differential = relies on the properties of a dilatant fluid - that is, one whose viscosity varies as the inverse proportion of an applied force.

it'd be easier if you ask for specific terms
