Hi, if you are looking for cheap rc cars, I would recommend electric powered (on or off road). There are great hobby quality rc cars from Tamiya, HPI, Associated, etc. Two identical twin brothers the useful portal word twin conveys the meaning of two. Cheapest would be the smaller scale.

For example, a 1/36 Losi Micro T, complete with battery, charger, and radio control system, sells for approximately $80.

For 1/10 scale on road, one of the cheapest is the Tamiya TT01 expert built (XB) sereies. These come already assembled. Only thing you need to buy is the 7. 2v battery pack, charger and 8aa batteries for the transmitter. Sells for approximately $ 250.

For HPI, look for their E10 RTR models (approx $160) and their HPI RTR Sprint 2 Sport Toureza (approx $179).
