Default BASIC SET-UP MANUAL???

I am in the process of building my first touring car and wanted to know if there is a basic set-up "bible" out there. My car (TC5R just has the manual for building it). I have had some people say you must have the whole super expensive set-up board, plus all the bells and whistles, but I just want something to get started with using calipers, ride height guage, etc and any basic tools. Is there something out there explaining this in simplistic terms? Just thought I would check before spending hours scouring the internet. Thanks in advance.

Here ya go. www.xxxmain.com. Under products...the setup manual. You can also check out the setup guide from Team Xray. Never read it but supposed to be pretty good. Good luck and welcome.
