    Many thanks to Stretch at the Mazda6 boards for posting these.

    While most of this isn't track specific, it provides the underlayings for the fundimentals of setuping up your car.

    ME468 Engine Design
    ME470 Vehicle Structural Design
    ME481 Vehicle Design

    These are not light readings, but great information to be had.

    WOW.. Thanks so much for saving this guys, I just spent two hours reading every one of those threads. I can't believe how many times the proverbial light bulb turned on in my head. I've got a few pages of notes to go over now, but WOW that's like the Ford Focus guide to vehicle dynamics and driving.

    My favorite part was a comment by Michael in the ABS post. "Auto-X is Largely Go Like Hell, Brake Like Hell, and Turn as required".

    Thanks

    Hey,
    I'm interested in all this!,
    BUT I don't know how to navigate these web sites. How do I find these articles.
    Please be specific, I'm computer troubled.
    Thanks,

    I just added the books thread... I figure that will be a good resource once everybody has chimed in.
