can some1 tell me what lsd means

It basically stands for 'Limited Slip Differentials'

From my knowledge, it minimises wheel spin by making full use of the torque available that is evenly distributed across the wheels in order to improve traction (grip). I guess that would result in less torque steer as well. So better acceleration, better cornering, and better performance.

Do a search on google as there are different types of LSD's available and it's much more in depth that what I've said.

Here's a thread about a recent discussion about the different LSD's available for our cars.

Dead thread, but i know what OEM is

Wiki is your friend

its practically the software you get when its purchased with a piece of hardware. It has a different license to retail versions of the software. Meaning its only to be used with the hardware that you purchased it with. basically.

OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer

that is, in the case of this forum, Toyota Genuine Parts, or the part that came with the car.

E.g. "I have the OEM foglights" => the person bought the car with standard foglights or purchased Toyota Genuine Parts foglights rather than an aftermarket brand.

Yep can be applied to other things like computers too!

This is probably a stupid question but is a prefacelift sportivo a 04 model and a facelift the 05 model? :help:

You should have asked it in the Stupid Thread in our Club Lounge section :)

You're pretty much right for the Sportivo models. Anything 05 onwards are facelifts.

However for the non-Sportivo's, the facelifts started in 04.

got a few terms im still trying to wrap my head round.

1ZZ?

2ZZ?

121?

122?

123?

these are particularly confusing... i kinda understand that 2zz referz to sportivos VVT-LI engine yea? no? and the 1ZZ referz to VVT-I yea?no? and the 121,122,123 termz have been used in a similar way although apparently the 121 is the sedan? 122 is hatch? 123 is sportivo? im pretty sure im getting it wrong somewhere along the way here...

N/A? is that referring to the engine being stock, not supercharged/ turbo?

1zz-fe - The one refers to it being the 1st generation of the ZZ series engines, fe is Toyota speak for economy tune.

2zz-ge - The 2 refers to it being the 2nd generation of the ZZ series engines, ge is Toyota speak for performance tune.

FE = Economy

GE = Performance

GZE = Performance Supercharged

GTE = Performance Turbo Charged.

ZZE121, ZZE122, ZZE123 denote what model it is, ZZE122 is the hatch in 1zz-fe engine form, ZZE123 is the hatch in 2zz-fe form.

so should your car say if its the first or second gen (1zz/2zz)? if not how do you know wich one it is? bought mine second hand so i dont know.

should do a history glossary

runx > auris

blade?

The name Corolla is part of Toyota's naming tradition of using the name Crown for their primary models, e.g. the Corona, which is Latin for crown, or the Corolla, which is Latin for small crown and Camry which is an Anglicized pronunciation of the Japanese term "kanmuri" meaning "crown".

The Corolla's chassis designation code is "E", as described in Toyota's chassis and engine codes.

Using the Corolla chassis

A slightly upmarket version called the Sprinter was sold in the Japanese home market. It was replaced in 2001 by the Allex, which was then replaced by the Blade in 2006.

There have also been several models over the years, including the Corolla Ceres (and similar Sprinter Marino) hardtop, Corolla Levin and Sprinter Trueno sports coupés and hatchbacks, and the Corolla FX hatchback, which became the Corolla RunX. The RunX was replaced by the Auris in 2006. A compact MPV named the Corolla Verso has also been released in European markets. Its Japanese counterpart is the Corolla Spacio, which has been discontinued as of the 10th generation. The US-market Scion xB is also sold in Japan as the Corolla Rumion.

The Corolla Matrix, better known just as the Matrix, shares the E120 and E140 platforms, and is considered the hatchback/sport wagon counterpart of the North American Corolla sedan, as the Corolla hatchback is not sold there. Toyota frequently combines the sales figures of the Corolla sedan and Matrix. The Pontiac Vibe, which is the General Motors badged version of the Matrix, also shares the Corolla platform. [3]

Over the years, there have been rebadged versions of the Corolla, sold by General Motors, including the 1980s' Holden Nova of Australia, and the Sprinter-based Chevrolet Nova, Chevrolet Prizm, and Geo Prizm (in the United States). The Corolla liftback (TE72) of Toyota Australia was badged as simply the T-18. The five-door liftback was sold with the Corolla Seca name in Australia and the nameplate survived on successive five-door models.

The Daihatsu Charmant was produced with the E30 through E70 series.

Using the Corolla name

The Tercel was a front wheel drive spin-off of the rear wheel drive Corolla introduced in 1980, called the Corolla Tercel which later became its own model in 1984.

The Tercel chassis was used again for the Corolla II hatchback.

why are the old corollas called TWINKYS?

EDIT.

i just realised while typing this..... it was derived from the term "twin cam" right?

Spot on mate! Same reason the Ford Escort with the Lotus twin cam engine is also often referred to as a twink. http://www.uniquecarsandparts.com.au/car_info_ford_escort_twin_cam.htm

Gotta love twin cams!
