Default On-Road Tuning Guide?

Does anybody know of some good free tuning guides for on-road touring cars? I currently have a TA-05 and would like to understand the impact of all the different tuning options.

Thanks!

The corally Phi manual, Xray manual and tunig guide, type-r manual and TC5 manuals all have sections about how to fine tune your car and the changes it will make. There is also a book floating around XXX-MAIN put out, its a good place to start.

Hudy makes a great one. Free, it has colour pics, and it's very descriptive.

Yeah, just found the Hudy guide after doing a different (more successful) search on the forums. Of course, it makes me want a Hudy set-up station even more. But, at this point (I'm still a rookie), the Wife Acceptance Factor is NILL for that type of investment .

Not necessarily just for how to set things, but the theory behind it all.

Oh yeah. I still plan to read it all (along with some websites I found), it just also gives me the desire to have a set-up station as well :P.

The Serpent setup guide is great and is more inline with most chassis designs avaiable.
The Xray has a lot more info though.
Between the two of them you have all you need to know.
Download them here :
