Corvette Glossary


A glo ssary is an alphabetical list of terms in a particular domain of knowledge with the definitions for those terms. Traditionally, a glossary appears at the end of a book and includes terms within that book which are either newly introduced or at least uncommon.

This is our online version of Corvette jargon, specific terms, lingo, and much more. This is the Vettester Glossary.  Login, or register and submit your term to share them with all of us.

Term Definition
J Stroke Slang A method of demonstrating one's manliness in a very unique fashion. A J Stroke is burning rubber by first starting in reverse and having the tires burning and while the tires are still spinning and burning, you engage a forward gear (much easier with an automatic transmission where you shift from R to D) and continue burning rubber in a forward direction. The car rear tires typically will move sideways some so that the resulting burnt rubber creates rubber marks on the road in the shape of a J. One J Stroke indicates a wimp car since it has an open differential and is obviously not a performance vehicle. Two J Strokes side by side indicate a performance car with a limited slip rear end. (A very tongue in cheek commentary) This practice was primarily engaged in during the late '60s and early '70s when manufacturers had 5 year / 50,000 mile warranties on their cars. As this quickly destroys tires, rear axles, differentials, u-joints, and transmissions, few individuals do this if they have to pay for the damage.
