I'm looking for information about an old racing plane, the PAR-1. It was a mid wing pusher from the early 50s. There is supposed to be a write up and 3 view in a two volume set of books titled: Goodyear and Formula One Racers, by Robert Hirsch. I tracked down the books on Amazon, by I'm hoping someone already has them and can look it up to see if there is much written about it. The aircraft is a single seat pusher with a Y-tail, and I'm curious about the drivetrain. Shaft drive aircraft is a topic of another thread, and I want to track down as much info as I can about this approach, which seems to have generated a lot of interest/design activity back then. It also had variable incidence on the wing, which is a whole other can of worms.
