Those are good suggestions, that I will try to add here soon. The other one I was considering is saucing techniques and tire warmers...not sure yet

Guide looks good. If I may add a little constructive criticism, I would think that all the adjustments should be arranged in the order of the magnitude that adjustments could be felt (i.e. tires, springs, damping, alignment etc...)

Similar to level 1,2,3 adjustments grouped together in this HPI tuning guide.

A few more........Chassis and top deck, thick versus thin. Suspension components, hard versus soft. Shock tower, high versus low.

1.1 looks very good.

Great guide, condenses the information and makes a good quick reference.
