A Slice of Humble Pie

As you are all no doubt aware, I am happy to take the bashing stick to FPV and Ford on those occasions when I feel that it's justified.

I recently did this in a thread exhorting FPV to lift their game after the extensive delays and early quality issues with the FPV product range.

Todays mail produced a very nice letter from Happy Jack with an apology for the delay and a little sweetener to ease the pain.

Apart from being a very warm gesture this is also a massive step in the right direction for positive Public Relations and I want to be the first to congratulate HJ and the team on taking this step.

I'll still beat you up occasionally but I'll try to be gentler.

Cheers
Russ

An excellent response and result. It never fails to impress me how HJ manages to put his "personal touch" on so so many things! He's everywhere!

I take my hat off to the man!

HJ - if you read this, I am sincerely unhappy with the performance of my AU V8 auto. I was thinking something along the lines of a 5.6L stroker motor from the last T series might just ease my pain!

Great Stuff Russell. Always good to see a company like FPV so reactive.
