Suspension N00b. Coilover Help, adjustment/setup

Hey guys, I love cars always have but decided to get into aircraft mechanics instead of cars...pretty much for the money. So now that i have a job and can afford stuff, i want to fulfil my goal of putting a car on a track. I have an 04 330ci zhp.

I am looking to get some coilovers and start doing my suspension. I am 95% percent sure i am going with the KW V3s. Seems like the best option and i can get a killer deal.

Since i am a mechanic i like to do everything myself. Is there anywhere i can learn about setting up the suspension for street/track?

-how to adjust the suspension
-break in period and what to do for that
-what settings should be?
-what the camber should be? advantages/disadvantes

I am pretty much looking for a "Tracking/Racing for dummies" I really want to learn how to tune the whole car, but first wanted to start with suspension. Any information you guys could give me or links to websites/books/videos would greatly help. THANK YOU VERY MUCH
