They're cheap enough to buy one and not hassle with it

ive seen and used some home made ones and when i looked at the parts they used, its just about as much money as it is to buy one, and then you have to spend time making it and all, not worth the headache IMO

Stl hobbies will make you one. Personalized with your name engraved on it. Very cool. You can find his site in the newer car action magazines or just google it. Ed (the owner), is a very nice guy. Race with him every wed night for club racing. He has a bunch of other stuff as well. From soldering jigs to any custom part/parts you might want made.... Check it out.
