I want to write a car race, but I didn't find anything about cars! The articels on www.gamedev.com (http://www.gamedev.com) didn't help me! I was able to pogramm linear acceleration, but not the hard with angular acceleration. An the combination of both are even worse! Where can I find these things. I found three Books at amazon.com about physics and mechanics, but aren't there tutorials on the net?
Thanks Johannes

Check out some NeHe Tutorials. You'll find something there but not much, unfortunately. I really recommend buying a book about physics simulations.

If you aren't comfortable with vector math, just use 2 linear equations. One for +-X and one for +-Y. From there you can get a vector with magnitude.
