I've always been fascinated by and wanted to know more about the internals of a car: everything from the engine to the transmission to the suspension and the chassis. Currently I am a year 1 ME student, so I don't have enough physics knowledge to study the logistics in depth in that regard. However, I would like to start studying the differents parts and mechanisms and their functions and how they all fit in together to create such amazingly complex machines. In a sense, I guess I'm looking for some literature, perhaps a great series of books, that future mechanics would study at a vocational school where very little physics knowledge is required. If you know of any, I'd really appreciate your recommendations. On another note, if you can think of something else that my time could be better spent on (besides getting an early start on the Physics, because I already have), feel free to make those recommendations a well. Thanks.
