That's for a TX and module. No RX
I'd say get the JR XS3. It's under 200usd. It's synthesized, so you don't have to spend more money on extra radio crystals. And it's FM so you'll get less glitching.
AM runs on a wider or longer radio band than FM. That makes it more open to glitches than FM. A glitch is when your car loses signal and does what ever it wants. This usually results in broken parts and much frustration.
