That book to my knowledge is no longer in print, since BigJims passing.

You can sometimes find copies for sale in the Swap and Sell sections...

You can also find most of the information that became the book in the interviews with BigJim and Hank of Hobbytalk (they have been saved)

http://www.hobbytalk.com/bbs1/showth...4&page=2&pp=30

After Jim moved away from the HobbyTalk forums he had a forum on the rccars.com web site. There is a LOT of his motor info there too.

Things are headed towards a return of the SWT Series, but for
2017 the focus will be on the Encino Velodrome (and dirt oval racing)

Amazon.com was the only place I ever found it...

http://www.amazon.com/Big-Jims-Motor.../dp/1553690869

and it says unavailable currently with no knowledge if it will be back. I guess only Hank knows that answer.

Search the For Sale forum on this site, as well as ebay.

I picked up one last fall at one of those places.

I remember Hank posting some info after BigJim's passing about Jim's daughter not allowing the book to be reprinted.

Thankfully HANK had the whole transcript from his interview on HIS website, so HE has the rights to that content.

If someone wants to take the time to build their OWN book, I believe ALL the info that is in the book is in that HobbyTalk interview.

A little editing and copy/paste and you can make all your own pages w/pictures, and illustrations that were included.

Personally, I just keep that link in my favorites for reference (Plus I copied the entire content onto my hard drive...just in case something ever happens to it there.)
