NASTF is aware that MBUSA is, so far, excluding the transmission control unit from their list of TRP components made available to NASTF VSPs with a valid LSID. The MBUSA TRP policy, PAC 003 dated 3/8/13, can be found under the “Theft Related Parts” tab at PAC-003 specifies TRPs in Section 3.7 and lists the TRP components currently available to NASTF VSPs in the exceptions to section 4.2.1.
