It is often tricky to say the word fast in Chabacano. Often it depends on the context on how you say the word fast in Chabacano. There are four ways I can think of to say the word fast in Chabacano.
Paspas: This word which means fast comes from the Bisayan language.
Todas: The word todas is defined as with in full force or with much force by the Chabacano dictionary of Rolando Arquiza Santos (2010). This word is also used to mean fast or loud by other people but these definitions don’t exist in Santos’ Chabacano dictionary. This word is actually a bit colloquial and none of these three definitions exist in Camins’ Chabacano dictionary.
Camins’ Chabacano dictionary was published about ten years before Santos’.
Pronto: This word comes from the Spanish language and it also means quick or fast in that language. In Italian, the word pronto also exists and means fast as well. Colloquially, pronto can also mean easy (in Chabacano).
Corre: Aside from to run, this word also means fast. Note however that the adjective corre is pronounced as cohrre (as opposed to the verb corre which is pronounced as correh).
The word rapido is markedly absent in Camins’ dictionary. It is however present in the dictionary of Rolando Arquiza Santos. I have to say though that I have never heard this word used in the Chabacano language. It might have been used in the past though. Rapido is the common Spanish word for the adjective fast.
Here are some sentences using these Chabacano words:

The word ligero is also used to mean "fast" in Chabacano. Note that this word in Spanish usually means light but can also mean quick (as in ligero de dedos, ligero de pies). Nowadays though, you would hardly hear anyone using this word. The word used by many nowadays is paspas.
So how do you know which word to use? Unfortunately, there really are no set rules on which word to use for a certain scenario so the best way to approach this dilemma is to listen to native speakers converse.
