R9, R8 etc can apply to the Rank of a title or sometimes the attribute Requirement on a weapon (the latter is also seen with Qs, i.e. q9, q8).

MQSC = Mount Qinkai Speed Clear
Pl (I think it's Pi actually) = Pain Inverter

Pl could mean Polish / Poland

Well since the mesmer update PI also refers to Psychic Instability (gotten more popular since the update).

I suspect FR could be "full run" as in all areas plus the pink Ape.

And I've always wondered what 'sabway' is short for. It's not on the list.
Sabway is a combination of SabbyCat and IWAY (tho IWAY has nothing to do with it)... SabbyCat (as far i know) was the original author of the 3 necro gimmick build that is most common today.

Close - it was actually a guy named Sab, who introduced the masses to the delights of the three necro build in this thread here.

As for the ...way, that's a suffix that's been appended to most popular builds since the infamous IWAY - q.v. Glaiveway, Frostway, Spiritway et al.

Oh, right.
What does the term "Go Red Engine" mean?
I've seen it around, but never fully understood it in context.
Thanks in advance.

It's the Guru swear filter. If you type in certain words they'll be replaced with that -> RED ENGINE GORED ENGINE GORED ENGINE GORED ENGINE GO. There's more about it in the Q&A FAQ sticky.
