Speed--itís ironic that you mention that book. Iíve owned it for about a year now and just today I printed it. I didnít think it was worth $19.95 let alone the 50 bucks. It is geared more towards the paved track racer. Once you buy it they try to sell you some more crap buy asking you to review a new book for 10 days for free, but only after they get a credit card number and verification to charge you another 50 bucks. Itís only free if you call them within the 10 days to cancel the charge.

Some useful information, you could buy a couple Steve Smith books for the price. There are more than enough people here on the board that will give you much more info; for free and thatís priceless. Iíve bought a lot of books and I think Iíve learned more here than I have in the books. If you just got to have a book or two I would recommend Street Stock Technology and Dirt Stock Car Tech, from Steve Smith. Good Luck.

I agree, not worth it! Everything in it is on the forum! Just run a search on what you're looking for. The Steve Smith books are alot better...loojack

I've been racing for about a year and a half. I bought the book last fall. I agree this forum kick---. But the book does have a couple of good things in it I found help full but then again I'm still a rookie. Don't know if its worth the 50 bucks I spent. Make a nice quick referance out in the shop. He didnt try to sell me any thing extra and he does answer email questions. Just my 2 cents worth.

I bought "street stock tips and tricks" from fetterly motorsports. Its worth the $20 just as a quick reference when you may not be able to get stuff off the forum. I use it and like it but obviously it is nothing compared to this place. I have also made notes in my book from here so I have the best of both worlds.... good luck....
