Its been a while since I read this book, so I'll comment as I remember it. The book covered many topics that are involved with building a racecar from the ground up. It discusses the different types of axle set-ups, with pros and cons. It covers chassis design, braking, suspension, and aerodynamics. It is a good start if you are looking to design your own car, but you will probably be left wanting more specific information. This book tends to be more general.
