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

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.
