Do the math. You'll love it.
yeah i'll do the math, i'll employ 10 people at china for a whole year for $50,000 at a plastic mould factory.

if its costing you $50,000+ for a plastic mould you aint getting it from the best place u can.

I must point out that it was mugenlife that posted the mold price ranges he sees, not Chazz(not saying mugenlife is wrong).

Sure you COULD get 100 Chinese workers and make a composite part for cheap, but could you make a GOOD composite part? Have you seen some of the parts coming out of Associated now?

I will also point out that X-Factory parts are 100% Made in the USA
