whats the best street and track driving book out there,I know most of you guys..have them all.So whats the cream of the crop the go to book.

There used to be a book when i was in the "classic" mini cooper club it was called David Vizards Tuning the BMC A series.
I can tell you everyone used it like a bible when building their cars .It was always amazing to me.That every one read the same book,and every one had different ideas of what the man said,just dont understand how that happens.Its like they read separate books. They made different choices and built totaly different engines and suspension,when this guy dyno tested every single part and gave graphs to back up the data.

Im so far behind ,that I think Im in first.

Yep, that book has it all pretty much. Just ignore the psyco-babble and soak up the technical details. Code likes to turn motorcycle riding into some kind of weird mind exercise. But all the technical stuff is right on.

i'd agree with jb and joe, and i've picked up or read through most of them out there right now. i hate doing budgets, so the Code analogies and mind melt stuff leaves me a little dry. but they all have something to offer, if only different perspectives...which helps you realize there is a different approach for every rider, and that's a good thing to know and be comfortable with. and it seems there are some holes in all of them... things that aren't formulaic, like starting and passing strategies, are kinda glossed over.

anyway, i'm spending too much of my working allowance on my biking budget and i'm in danger of over running my lunch line.
