Default I need a tuning guide

I need a tuning guide for my tc5.I guess any touring (carpet)car guide will do.Anyone know where i can download one for free.It seems Associated wants to charge for that service.I spend all that money for that car and i don't get anything to help me tune it . Xray gives you a nice one.I am getting tired of asking to see one from other drivers in the pits.Really would appreciate any help.

Maybe someone here has one they could possibly send me via email

The Xray book is good, but the XXX Main book goes into a little more detail about weight transfer.

But I got every one beat, I have the privledge of racing at the same track as the author of the XXX Main book.

I will probably get the XXX main bible.It would have been a blessing to have it with me tonite.I struggled with setup on my TC3 with rubber on carpet.We have a Nascar class on wed. and everyone was passing me like i was tied to a stump.I still wish i got some kind of guide with my $300 car.

Also thanks for those links Victor A.
