Kenichi Yamamoto Rotary Book in PDF

A freind of mine found this on the web. I have not read it yet but I hear its very informative and usually goes for $100 on ebay. You can get it here. I have no idea who put it up on the web. Sorry if its a repost.

The Renesis and 4 rotor docs are new to me, but both Yamamoto books can also be found here:

I need brush up on my calculus.

Yea, I had the Yamamoto books, but I found the 4-rotor article absolutely interesting. Thanks for that!

For some reason the PDF's of the yamamoto books only have the first 10 or so pages. All the other pages are blank. I downloaded other PDF's from that reference site linked and the pages all show up fine.

Anyone else having this problem?

Wow! That is amazing! It's like reading a white paper but way more enjoyable.

Has anybody look into the Street Rotary HP1549 by Mark Warner? Is it worth the money?

Amazing that I've never ran across these before. Will be saving. For anyone looking at this, the first few links are old and no longer work. Refer to post #14
