Default Whats the deal with Fioroni

I've been looking at hop ups for my 8ight and noticed a lot of *overpriced* stuff. How does Fioroni get away with higher prices than everyone else? Are they just a bling factor or what? Do the pros race with these parts?

Generally speaking, the pros drive mostly, if not entirely stock setups.

I heard read/heard that before. So even more of a question of who and why. 250 bucks for a differential? WTF?

There is no Fioroni part I have ever seen that that is the "best". There is always something equal or better from another company that is cheaper.

Their products seem more expensive now than they used to be, possibly because of the weak american dollar.

Their torsen diffs have always been expensive, but I remember they used to be around $150.
