I spent 30+ years learning about aerodynamics, suspension, choosing tires, exhaust, engines etc. RM said, if, you can read, this information above will afford you years of experimenting and especially wasting resources to get the level of education where you make intelligent choices.

We can't all be engineers, but hopefully, you can read and understand the basis of their dynamics to be a successful at your endeavors. Urban legend learning is great, only, if the sources you choose are valid.
