I went to a Chinamart and bought 2 pretty standard remote control cars for about R120. That's something like... $17? Each has a 27MHz remote with four inputs.

Take off all the plastic and junk, and you have a really good chassis with...everything you need really.

I'm planning on re-using them for robots. But for that cheap, there's no reason not to autopsy them and figure out what a RC car needs and how it gets done. Or transplant entire pieces to your homemade RC car (motors, steering, H-bridge, sender, reciever, wheels, axle, base, multicolored epileptic LEDs...)

get a control from a old toy that broke like this      these toys brake realy easy because they are so small so you or one of your freinds should have one.

the control system is very hard to make and it would be best to by one.
the motor can be used from any electronical car.      prety much you find the points on the control system for the motor and batery and solder them on then for the steering you can make with lego usein some pivits and gears  and mount / glue it all to the toy car   i'll try to get some pics for you
