This is a very interesting Thread and I wish to give my 2 cents in.
I do agree 100% on what Taylor-Racing just mentioned which I must say is the Bottom Line of it all!
I salute and support gonsped idea because I submit to the fact that .21 On-Road Motors moreso modified ones like JPs, Collaris, M. Rossis alike are getting more and more rediculously priced. But we all have to realize that this is all part of business and BIG Business, it is
. At the present time, no one is able to match their quality and performance and also at the same time able to put it in Mass Production and that is why they controll that part of the market and therefore dictate their price. And I bet, that whoever will be able to follow suit (whether in the form of copying or any other form) in matching the performance and quality AND be able to put it in mass production
, will not charge that much less than what above mentioned manufacturers charges now. Because if people start catering to their business, they wouldn't be going into this or any other good business, for that matter, if they wouldn't choose to make more money. And that is what it is all about .... "making more and more of them".
We should be thankful that we have these aray of motors to choose from and it would just be up to the consumers to make that choice.
