Just looked into shipping one splitter.  Quoted from $190 to $300 to ship essentially an empty box as it doesn't weigh much.  Getting raped on the dimensions.  I learned a private company with a FedEx account can get discounts as much as 85% off....probably why you can find the chin spoiler to include free shipping.  Yet for someone like me I am being asked to pay as much as $300?  FedEx gave me a local private company that has an account with them to try and get a cheaper rate...even though it goes through the same shipping company FedEx.......am I crazy or is this stupid?  Eye opener crap welcome to the shipping industry....

I've driven my car about 1100 miles this year.  So that's 1100 miles on an oil and filter change, trans drain and fill ans Redline LWSP gear oil in PTU and RDU.  Am I crazy for changing it already?  Oil ans filter I'll definitely do but should I leave the trans and gear oil?  I just drive it so hard so I'd rather just change it ...knowing I did all I could

I like that plan.  I'll do that!  I know the mileage is minimum but for peace of mind I'll do the oil and trans fluid.  I'm equally hard on the brakes.  I'll need to change those next year.
