Post Big Jim's Motor Book

Was wondering where I could purchase one. Team Paradigm is out of stock, and with Jim passing "R.I.P" I'm sure you cant get one form his site any longer. If anyone knows please post.

Try checking Hobbytalk.com

Hank was the co-author on the black book he still might be selling it.

I have a copy and think it's great. He repeats himself quite a bit because it's mostly copied from forum posts, and some of the info is a bit dated (who runs an MVP anymore? ) But the techniques and explanations on why certain things work the way they do is awesome.

I got mine the same way through Trafford Publishing Direct. Mine took about 2 weeks from payment. The book is very informative and I have learned a lot from it, an invaluable resource for understanding motors. A great book from a smart man.

Burps, again you are too misinformed to impress others, you seem to be confused in what you are talking about, while Jim has departed this world as we know it, he left more information behind then most people will ever be able to use and it appears that you are incapable of understanding the treasured information he left behind. As for finding the local go faster 10 to 1 says he is using Jim's information.
