I would like to know this aswell, specifically the 7.3 and possibly the 6.4 if compounds are used on them.

There's more to it than a post here can cover.
Start at the above link and read everything you can.
In about 6 months you might have a slight inkling as to how it all works.

Spending money I don't have on crap I don't need to impress people I don't know.
