Default Understanding Car Setup

HI EVERYONE
This is my second season racing tc on carpet,the problem is I spent all my time on learning how to tune motors. my stock motors are wicked fast just as fast as the top guys at my track.With that I learned that as fast as my car is it does me NO good if I can not control the car.Does anyone know of a book or website that explains the affects that all the adjustment on our cars have so I can understand setup. What I mean is if I change droop ,camber link position,castor etc. what does each do , or are the results of each adjustment learned by trial and error ?
THANKS
