A todo taco

Encontré esta frase en asihablamos.com. Se dice que significa "fuerte" o "rápido" en Colombia. Me preguntaba si es lo mismo en otro paises.

Como siempre gracias.

It looks like with the whole heel on the gas pedal. Because taco means different things in different countries, my guess it that it is a Colombian term not use in many other places.

I'm most familiar with Mexican Spanish, and I've never heard the term "a todo taco." I know that in Central America, at least, "tacos" can mean soccer cleats (shoes). That might be what the "taco" in this expression is referring to.

In Colombian slang it means 'really fast' (rápido). It can also mean 'really loud' (pone la música a todo taco), applying the fuerte meaning.
This phrase is only used in Colombia.
Another site suggests that it means 'to go all out' (still referring to Colombian slang). There's a restaurant called A Todo Taco in Bogotá, Colombia, where Mexican food is served. Reviews can't say enough about the place, so it seems they go all out to please the palate.

Espero que viaje a Colombia después de esta mierda COVID y quería saber acerca de esta frase. Gracias a todos.
Por favor, perdone mi francés.

En inglés la frase "perdone mi francés" significa perdone mi uso be mal lengua. ¿Hay una frase lo mismo en español?
