I think I have the same set of R/C rims on my Traxxas Nitro Rustler. I believe they were made by RPM (the R/C ones), and they match some American Racing rims like mentioned above...I'll go have a look in my shop and see if I can't identify them..

Yea...in high school, I built a headache rack out of 2x2x0.125 square stock....basically looked like a stinger for your hitch. I put two leds on each side and those were a PITA!! Best thing to use is household wire, the solid copper kind. I worked that through, then taped....MAJORLY taped the wires to the solid wire. BAM! done!. Still, it was a big **** pain.

Please see link in a few posts above. It's all custom. He converted the front Independent suspension into a solid axle suspension system. The link Zabeard posted has some info. Zach also did a solid axle swap.
