I put together a handbook for one of my teams that was pretty new to alcohol racing when I was going to miss a race with them a few years ago. Everyone seemed to like them and I have had some interest in making some more, so I figured I would give it a go.
This handbook is the way I operate and maintain a car at the track. I wish I could say I was smart enough to have come up with all of this, but this is what I have learned from working under some great minds in alcohol racing. We use these methods on Chris Foster and Fred Hanssen's Championship winning-teams.
Everybody has a little bit different needs for the situation or car, but I think this is a great guide for anyone who runs TAD/TAFC/Pro Mod or any blown alcohol car.
The handbook is laminated and spiral bound so it will hold up at the track.

Things to look for.
With purchase I will email an Excel Tune Up log sheet, along with pdf's to print out Bearing measurement log, Clutch measurement log and Post Race Maintenance/Parts run log sheet.
Many of you may be up to speed with what you do on your car, but I think this could be something to hand a new guy to get him up to speed with what goes on. These are pretty detailed instructions for each of these procedures.
