Car tech is interesting to study. You cannot, however, master automobile technology overnight. With time, patience, dedicated efforts and the right resources, you can learn a lot about car tech.
How to find the right car tech resources
The answer lies first in the matter of which channel would be most convenient for you. There are physical print resources in the form of magazines and more. Then there is the more popular and the more convenient option, the digital versions which are available on the internet.
If you prefer reading magazines, doing it old school, then hunt for a library in your locality. Find one that you can trust. Compare the membership fees and the collection they have. Once you have a library membership you would have access to a large collection of magazines without actually have to purchase all of them. And the biggest advantage here is that you would be able to access even old issues which are hard to find.
Internet resources are chosen mainly because they are easy to access. When you choose a library you would still have to physically travel to the library to pick your magazine. But with the internet, you can obtain all the information you need without even stepping out of your house. The content available however would have to be verified sometimes. With the ease of extracting and uploading information on the internet, almost everyone has access to it. So finding a reliable source is what matters. There is also some misleading information available on the internet. So pick your source with care.
When you access Internet-based resources one other option is the ease of finding suppliers and vendors. So if you are looking to upgrade your car you can find easy links to purchase sites. I found a great reconditioned engine this way while browsing for some information.
