Default I have a Futaba Radio without ESC

By purchasing a car kit with ESC, how do I know the Radio will work with the ESC?

Just about any ESC will work w/ any radio. For the most part, its Plug-and-play

Default When one is racing

what keeps the car's frequencies from driving the other car? Especially when it's 10 cars and more. What keeps the radio on one specific car.

The crystals determine which frequency a transmitter and receiver combo are operating on. In a 10 car race all 10 cars would need to have different frequencies in order to avoid conflicts.
