Default Ridiculous header cost...why?

so i've been looking at nitro on roads, as i have a buggy and monster trucks. i was looking around at exhaust pipes and all kinds of little parts, when i noticed a header that was $274.99, it is a RB steel header. [link=http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/cPath/1_23_32/products_id/32506]here[/link] it is. i see that it is steel, and it is welded, i see that their is alot of work that went into it, but 274.99, why?

Well considering their engines are 200 - 500+ I'm not surprised, but damn thats one expensive manifold......I wonder if they have a matching pipe for the same price or more???? lol

probably just welded by hand, and makes you look cool. Not really, but yeah overpriced, like most rc hopups haha.
