So what if you are new to cars in general. And after test driving all the pretty cars.

Where to I go for the "dummies guide articles" ?

Thanks!
For the true beginner that knows very little about cars, I often recommend the automotive section of HowStuffWorks.com is a great start. You can find well written articles about just about everything there, with accompanying diagrams/animations. If you already know the basics about cars, sites like wikipedia can fill in a few details rather well.

On the other hand, if you are simply lost in the jargon & TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms) ... there isn't much that I know of that can help. Just keep reading, ask questions, and continue to learn. We were all new here once and it took a while to figure out what some of the stuff meant.

Dragstrip, Tracking, Autocrossing, Driving Techniques Discussions
Performance driving discussions

Post up how you ran last night at the strip, ask for tips on how to get the best time when you tackle the autocross track, and find out how to keep your car running well on track days at your local road course. .
Perhaps it's time to split the description here of the "Road Course/Track and Autocross" subforum away from the original all-inclusive "Dragstrip and Launch Techniques".

Pretty strange place to ask that question (edit - post with question since deleted), but anyway . . . try this.
