Search three-letter acronyms!

Post

There are so many three-letter acronyms used in F1... F1 is synonymous with the three-letter acronym!
So why, oh why is it impossible to search this site for anything word with less than three letters. Surely a clause or a list of acronyms could be added to the search algorithm, allowing us to quickly find old and new tech without having to resort to an exhausting and tedious Google search?!!

Yeah, TLAs ( 8) )are hard to search by, and unfortunately so are the two letter variety. Good idea about having a cross reference built in to the search function. It would be nice to have a moderated library of TLAs which users can make contributions to.

It's a technical issue really. Sadly, our search capabilities are not as advanced as Google ;)

Anyway, check our glossary:

If you're missing something there, suggest an addition!

I have a question: in the glossary, toe-out is said to be unwanted but Mercedes' DAS has been created to maximize the toe-out in the corners… Can someone explain this?
