I voted 'pay up if you can't wait'
paying extra for 'expedited' isn't unheard of
I am very happy with my sprocket and adapter
(I got lucky and ordered at the perfect time in the production schedule)
I showed your handiwork to a lot of people at the deathrace and they all loved it
perhaps stock stuff like the shimano cb adapter and sprockets, intakes,,,etc could be at the same rate/price and custom items should be priced accordingly
custom by definition is time-consuming and therefore costly
