Default Touring car setup???

Hello
I'm completely new to touring cars (been into R/C in general for roughly 16 years) and need some pointers on setting up the car. Can anyone point me to a website that has a general setup guide. I'm looking for info on what positive/negative caster, camber, toe in and out, etc do to the car's handling.

I've done a number of google searches for such info but didn't come up with much.

Thanks!
Mike
