Taco typically refers to bending something in half (ie, "the pack was taco'd in that crash"). It stems from the U shaped bend of a taco shell.
Mushroomed is another typical slang for impact damage that causes a flared distortion.
P.S. I'm not sure if that's specifically how it's used on other forums, but that's the slang usage I've heard at flying fields.
