Yes, the Kyosho Mini Z stuff is expensive. And you have to use their transmitters, or a special KO module that costs almost as much.
Speaking of used, keep an eye out for an old ABC DTM 1/24 scale car. They look very similar to an Associated 12L, and use non-proprietary electronics. I'm using the Novak Spy ESC (they have a newer version now), an airplane micro servo, and Spektrum SR3500 receiver in mine.
Losi also has their micro trucks and rally cars that might be suitable for modification as onroad cars. I've never owned one, but the price looks right!
