Widen that sucker if you want it to be a real basher, Seb's conversion is the best. Just get a pair of RPM's Losi LXT front arms, some longer turnbuckles, front wheels all around, and you're set!

I've never heard of the "graphite tie bar" and "Jay Pede tranny conversion" though, what are those?

The graphite tie bar goes on the front hinge pins that go through the bulkhead. It keeps the bulkhead from allowing the pins to get bent sideways. Getting an aluminum bulkhead up front makes it so that the tie bar is no longer needed (as I am currently doing with my rustler).
Jay's conversion is where you take an aluminum motor plate from the Traxxas Hawk or SRT or similar and mod it to fit onto a Rustler/Pede gearbox. Only problem is that these plates are virtually impossible to find these days.

yea i got ahold of some brand new plates for the jay pede they are in the mail. as for making it wider i plan on it before to long but im gonna use the nitro rush arms instead of the losi arms (or i mite jsut wait nad get the aluminum ones from FLM)

top things on my list are
the rpm big bearings
-tranny mods
-aluminum shocks
-and brushless

the other stuff can wait if i run out of money because those are my main things

And what is the advantage to this? Just the motor cooling?

People here hate Nitro, I love it. I start it, run it about 50 ft from me and it dies, I go after it. Perfect exercise
