I have not heard of a 'kit' being available for this or any other RIDGID TS.
There is a dado insert for the table that must be used in place of the stock insert, or you can make your own zero clearance insert which is usually a better choice to help eliminate tear out.
A quick search on dado blades should find a couple threads from the past month or two.
Don't skimp on the quality of the dado set, and don't jump into a 8" dado set right off without considering a 6" set. You're not likely to be making dados deeper than an inch anyway so why subject your saw to the extra weight of an 8" dado set. Smaller diameter blades will also help with vibration.
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
