Wasn't there a tutorial DVD released by one of the training publishers on rigging a 4 wheel vehicle a in the last year or so? I can't seem to find it. I thought it was a digitaltutors product, but I could be wrong. Anyone recall that one or have I finally gone nuts?

It was done by 3dQuakers.

Here is the store link: car rigging (http://store6.esellerate.net/store/ProductInfo.aspx?StoreIDC=STR6605273669&SkuIDC=SKU70752703929&pc=)

And a demo (http://3dquakers1.com/webroot5/download.php?det=18) of it.

Yeah, I picked it up and went through it once. Haven't gone through and tryed to replicate the results yet though... The rig demonstrated doesn't do everything that I want it to do, and will inevitably just be the primer for me figuring things out for my own needs.

The big difference is that I want to be able to "drive" the vehicle independantly, with keyframes or on a path and have the simulation react accordingly, not have the RBD simulation drive the motion. It's going to be a big task for me. Hopefully I'll be able to show some results, and maybe processes when I get it nailed down.
