I now understand why I was getting a few pm's from different people about a buyers guide for 300's... unknown to me I even got my name on the article!

Evoman, your car looks stunning in those photos bud, nice one. Reading through it I only winced a couple of times which is rare for me and an article of that type! Good couple of links to here too.

I knew this would happen the minute you said to me "exclusive". Chris's name is on it as he sent me advice on 300 series weaknesses, a subject he knows a lot better than most. I then wrote and sent off my bit with knowledge of his included. It appears they've used quite a lot of my bit too, but then I guess it's easy to state the same facts about the series.

Make it clear to Harry that it wasn't my intention to butt-in to his project, I sent off an article to RC and they decided to use it before I knew you guys were involved.

Like I say, I knew when I read your PM saying Harry was doing this as an exclusive that this would happen. But the wheels were already in motion.
