        My understanding from the translation is that they will produce it for you, but at a high cost. It is more effective and cost effective to use the Yokomo Drift Package Basic as a donor. This is their recommendation.
        The post has been updated with 2 new images at the bottom, they are the official release info from Wrap-Up, check it out.
