Well, they did it again, TI and DR. Jon Valvano have produced an update to the awesome TI-RSLK kit called the TI-RSLK MAX which now reduces the amount of soldering needed to assemble the kit. It also includes a modified version of the Adapter Board as well as two smaller boards for the bumper switches and Sharp IR sensors.
The TI-RSLK MAX is listed as being shipped this August, so hopefully it will be available soon. I know some folks that will be very happy about the reduction of needed soldering.
Info from the TI Community forum
