Does anybody know if you could get Big Jim's books in PDF format for purchase?

I found the book less than useful and sold mine. Several articles within the book are repeated word for word in different chapters. Hank has reproduced a good portion of the book on HobbyTalk at the following link.

Hank wrote the book...

Pretty much the entire book is up on hobbytalk.....maybe just minus a few things from the back, that really have nothing to do with motor tuning are missing......it may be all up there though, I just didn't really look as I have a couple copies myself....

The book has plenty of useful information.....some is outdated, some repeat itself, but it still has good stuff.

You can also find a ton of good info on his forum at www.rccars.com in the Big Jim forum......it doesn't get used much anymore since he died, but its loaded with info, including more update stuff on the newer motors...

Book doesn't always work for some, some just don't apply it correctly......all I know is it helped lead my company to 13 national titles over the last 3 years......so it must have something good in it.

Later EddieO
