I have ordered my first set of kits. Taking them to RA this weekend. Bank is dragging it's feet getting the business account set up but it should be active soon. New business cc paid for these, I'm using it like our normal card.... all hings business related go on it and are paid at the end of the month with either proceeds or from our other accounts. I fully expect this to be in the red for a little while until that initial purchase has been paid back.

Pete suggested bring some to the challenge which is brilliant.

For a website, just use Shopify and whichever low to no-code hosting service (wix/Squarespace/etc) you can build an integrated shop with. For a really minimum solution you could even just list on Etsy

Racer's Oil Analysis Resource

Have the contact and form live. I have kits ready to roll. Offseason is kinda the worst time to start but at least I' ready for spring!

Because I'm an idiot... Do we submit the form, then you ship the kit? I'm confused because the form asks for miles/hours, which may go up. 

In reply to Pete Gossett (Forum Supporter) :

The process is you email/contact me to order kits. I send them to you, you fill, then fill out the form at the time you take the sample. The form gets to me before the sample so I can pre-log everything with the lab and once the bottles get to me they get dropped off for testing. 

Once the lab is done, I make out your report and you get an email with the results and report detailing those. It took about 4 business days from the time James mailed the first ones in from Chicago until he had a report.

Got it! I'm going to wait until one of the fleet is nearing time for an oil change, then contact you. I'm afraid if I order 4-kits now(or even just one) there's at least a 50/50 chance I'll lose it by then.

I like that model, your ducks are already in a row and the potential for there to be turn around of results and a report before the following weekend is impressive. I currently can't even mail something to myself in the same zip code and have it within a week

Digging around on the site, which I bookmarked, I even spotted a challenge car! (Okay, challenge winner).

I don't know how I missed this up to now. I probably sent my oil out to your former employer. I'm in. Congrats on following your dream in what seems like a very organized fashion. And congrats to Pete, the Capt and others for the wise guidance. 
I love a good startup.
