I don't think a race team is concerned with costs like the average Joe. They run through tires and brakes that cost more. Super sprint is only around $1300 or so now. Also they mentioned design as a reason stating that considerable gains weren't worth it over cutting stock pipes. Plus I have seen 15 whp dynos too.
No its not i looked at the price last week. Still stupid.

The tires race teams run depending on what requirements are, are usually actually not too badly priced.. When the most exxy tires you can really get street are $400-$450 each
