    I replied to a thread in the AC Chit Chat part about car related books and though these would definitely help anyone with ACC especially those wanting to learn Motec the Last book is very well written and easy to follow

    Prepare to win (the nuts and bolts to professional race car prep) - by Carroll Smith
    Tune to win (the art and Science of racecar development and tuning - by Carroll Smith
    Race car Aerodynamics (designing for Speed) by Joesph Katz (this one can be found and downloaded as a pdf)
    A Practical Guide to Race Car Data Analysis - by Bob Knox

    The first two are written for formula cars but the basic principles apply for all racecars

    The Carroll books are a great starting point for people like me who are interested in historic racing. But from what Aris has said here in the forum and in his videos, they may lead you in the wrong direction with ACC as controlling the underfloor aerodynamics is more critical. So for example softening the front suspension or adjusting the ride height could have the opposite effect to what these adjustments would normally do.

    I do agree the the Carroll Smith books have become outdated for more modern cars. They are geared towards formula cars without areo but they are a good starting point for new people. I have yet to watch any of the Videos from Aris. I just need the time to sit down and watch them as I'm very interested in his explanations on how these cars work. Right now I normally load the aggressive setup and go. These days I just do not have the time to dig into deep setup work yet

    Highly recommended watching Aris’s video’s. I’ve been going though them trying to keep up, currently watching “a first desperate try to explain... dampers!” And find that really informative and helpful
