Default Any good resources for nitro noobs?

I've been in RC awhile now, and am about to try my hand at nitro for the first time. Does anyone know of a good resource for getting started - basic setup and tunings, maintenance, etc?

I've found good bits here and there but mostly it's aimed at getting the most out of an engine or how to dial it in. Right now I just want to get some information for the first time I take this out to the track and practice so I won't be completely lost or do something that damages the engine. I do plan on racing where there will be people that are willing to help, but I'll need some solo practice time since it's also my first 1/8 scale.
