I don't think it's possible to build a tamiya compatible IR battle tank on your budget. You can get the tank, but the aftermarket boards and the apple to become tamiya compatible to battle with a club add considerably to the price. Just the tamiya apple and emitter alone will set you back about 90 bucks (almost half your budget), and even the impact is about 60. Then it's over a hundred more for a clark or IBU, so I just don't think you can get a tamiya compatible battle tank for $200. Your best bet is to save your money and start with a Tamiya Tiger or Sherman. I'm sure that's not what you want to hear, and I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that's just the way it is.
