give-up
 n.— «Every track has different characteristics on what is commonly called “give-up.” In other words, if you take two, is the car going to slow down or not?…A guy can adjust the car on a track that previously had what we thought was slower speed when you only take two tires. That’s the part I like. I like that part better than anything.» —“Trust in the tires” by Dave D’Onofrio Concord Monitor (New Hampshire) Sept. 16, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
