I would look at http://s3.invisionfree.com/rcdrift or groovydrift.com . Many of the drifters wire up their own lights for their bodies. I'm sure they would be able to help you. also, Tamiya makes a light kit, but it is a bit on the pricy side. http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXMGB0&P=7

Also try these guys. I have three different light sets and one sound set from them. All great stuff.

The real trick is using the right resistors so you don't over or under power the leds. This is my favorite calculator. www.ledcalc.com.

I regularly run lights both on and off road. Best way is to make your own. I use an old servo connector to my receiver to get a nice 6 volt supply. www.superbrightleds.com has several different ones depending on what you want.
