Any help would be great. I have a couple of chassis programs but they are a little ahead of my tools and knowledge. Thanks

Jammin go for it. The whole idea is to help out the new people or the ones who might of forgot. That way you can race with them and have a good time instead of having to look out for them.

I have several race&chassis books. The steve smith books are good for general race car construction and info. my favorite chassis book is "Chassis Engineering" by Herb Adams.It is written by a racer in understandable language. I got this book at a local Davis-kidd bookstore. $19.95 Good Luck.

I know a chassis analyzer would sure help me out. Another thing that might be nice is a place where people could list their setups of what works for them. Or at least a "starting" setup such as spring rates, alignment, weights, tire pressures, etc. This would have helped a TON before spending a year and a half learning and trying out different things on the chassis setup end.
