Radhad?

I get when Max asks Nux if he's a black thumb, ie someone who is good with engines. What the heck is a Rad Had/ hand though? Someone asks Nux if he's a Radhad or says he's a Radhad, it might be Capable i think.

Rev head. Same as gearhead.

Definitely "revhead", which is slang for someone who loves cars.

It's a pretty common expression in Australia for someone who's really into cars. Is it used anywhere else?

Wondering if George dropped some Aussie slang in?

Miller has said in interviews that the world of Fury Road has a limited vocabulary derived from a reduced level of communication. There's loads of great terms, many of which are derived from slang. I actually feel it was better done in Thunderdome as it was wittier.

I've head it used in the UK, usually about bikers who like to go fast though.

Bear in mind there's Aussie slang such as Sprog, Doof, and Fang It, so in short yes he did.

Yep, there are a few. "Fang it!!!" being the most noticeable one.

McFeasting, Fucucima, Aqua Cola, guzzoline, Thunder up, Decapito being numerous other examples of slang or just changed up words.

Despite what the subtitles might read, I'm 100% certain that it's Fukushima, not Fucucima :P

It's referencing the Japanese nuclear disaster, hence "kami-crazy Fukushima warboys".
