Yes, for $50 robot, if you not using servo, can use simple motor in place of servo but you need to have h-bridge motor driver like L293 to drive the motor and you need to change the software.
Bottom line is the construction will not going any lower cost.

... And the motor needs to either be a gear head motor, or have an external gear box.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
