At ASI it was confirmed that Raw Thrills’ would release a conversion kit for their racer Tokyo Drift and now we have the official word that the kits are now available. As we have stated before, the kits will go for a little over $2000 (price depends on the distributor but expect between $2200 and $2600) and can go into any Crusin’ USA/World/Exotica, California Speed or Off Road Challenge cabinet. I was also told that they can go into SF Rush 2049 cabinets but that is not in the press release. From what I saw at ASI, as long as the person who does the conversion does a good job at fitting everything correctly and cleaning the cabinets up properly, it can appear to the untrained eye that these are new cabinets but your results will vary from one arcade to the other obviously. Hit the post break for the full release.
