A fantastic little book with great layout - either look up the problem and it will tell you the cause and remedy, or look up setting and it tells reaction.

It's for your pocket, or your toolbox 3 Jun 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
Carroll Smith wrote a bunch of great books. This is a not a book. This is a spiral bound pocket reference with thick heavy shiny oil/gas/water/sweat resistant pages. It collects all of the excellent cause and effect tables from Tune To Win. "If your car twists under heavy braking then you have excessive toe out or brake bias or whatever".

There are 16 pages in the Problem->Cause direction and 16 pages in the Cause->Problem direction. Both directions are presented. You switch directions by turning the book around and looking at the back of the pages.

There isn't any new information here. The information that is here is limited to the key summary information from Tune To Win. Just what you need to know at the track. The format is track appropriate.

If you want a quick problem->solution reference at the track, this is it. If you want a book with lots of new information, this is not it.

I'm using this at the track. It's fantastic.

Don't leave home without it! 27 Mar 2009
By David Whitener - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
This book isn't designed to be read at home and stored on a book shelf. It was meant to be kept in your toolbox or the glovebox of your race car. It's size and format make it REALLY easy to help make quick tuning changes at the track. It's a heavy duty and laminated so you can use it with gloves or with greasy hands! I bring it with me everywhere I race! It's a tad bit expensive at $20 but it's worth it and will pay for itself quickly. You won't want to leave home without it!

My husband wanted this and I bought it for him. He loves it. It is a sturdy, well-laminated book that he says he will use a lot.

Great Book 8 Jun 2010
By Devin LaDawri - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This is a really good book.
It provides great insight and the whole 'cause and effect' / 'effect and cause' format is well considered.

The book does not go into vehicle architecture influences. In this respect the book is more of a development tool, rather than a design guide.
