Ok but my point is that paying more because of the legitimate engineering overheads of a legitimate business is not the same as "just paying more for the name" IMO, as if the place in china and Precision are similar companies with the same overheads but precision gouge you just because it says precision on it. Like you say, you are paying for R&D.

(I crushed a 240 with some stuff done to it. Honest.)
