im guessing his items are for sale as he still does produce(bigger orders); i know he's a real busy person though since he has college, owns an r/c track, job, etc.

i know S&N's trackside in Milwaukee,Wi carries Paradigm stuff...i don't know about other tracks around the World since i dont travel REAL far

well, tryed amazon for the book, would have bought it used if they had one,so if anybody out there has a copy of Big Jim's Rc Motor Black Book they would like to sell, I'd be greatful. Or another source to buy it from. I've checked most of the bookstores on line and it is no longer available in print for new purchases. Eddie from Br00d was very quick to reply to my Email question, thanks Eddie, Thanks also to you all for the help so far.
