Default Good online source for suspension tuning?

Just getting into club racing with my 8ight and I'm interested in learning more about suspension tuning. More specifically how to properly correct when the car exhibits poor handling characteristics.

Currently I own a digital caliper to measure droop by the length of the shocks, Associated ride height gauge and RPM camber gauge. I've head XRay has a tutorial on suspension tuning, I downloaded something from their website but it seemed a little basic in nature.

What do you guys recommend for this information? Would also like to learn about swaybars, all aspects of shock settings, causes of car oversteering, pushing etc. etc.

Thanks as always!

Download the instruction manual for the Xray 808 buggy, in the back of the instruction manual there is a suspension tuning guide, probably one of the best it has helped me greatly.
