Is there anywhere that has the hard stats for the races IE what they get bonuses in to start the game or negatives in?

That's a pretty nebulous question given that the different races have different tech affinities, different ship section preferences, different baseline ship toughness, different industrial/economy/research foci, different strategic and tactical drive characteristics... what exactly are you looking for?

If you say 'everything' I could type an answer 3 pages long and not cover it all, so don't say that.

Like what research techs they lean towards, like Ive noticed Hivers tend towards ballistics and Liir seem more so towards Torpedoes and bio stuff.

Yep, Hivers, Tarka and Zuul prefer ballistics over energy weapons, Liir and Morrigi prefer energy weapons over ballistics, and Humans are somewhere in between. There are other subdivisions too, for instance Humans and Morrigi tend to prefer direct fire torpedoes over seeking torpedoes, whereas Hivers and Liir prefer seeking torpedoes. You can find a chart of the various tech chances on the wiki here. There are lots of other useful bits of info there as well; this is a link to the front page.

Zuul do get a penalty to economy and to research, but their ships are very cheap and they mount a lot of guns. Zuul also get bonus command points and can often field bigger fleets than other races.
