Don't forget to try your local hobby shop. If its a half decent shop they will probably have them in stock, or can get them easily. Remember to have part numbers before you go in, so finding the parts is easier. They can also show you different radio's and get you setup with servos and such.

Definetely buy an FM radio system. AM radios are terrible with nitros.

75mhz and 27mhz cannot be mixed. It's best to use 75mhz though.

Those 2 plastic piece are your clutch. My advice, throw them in the garbage and buy an MIP 4n1 clutch, it is a thousand times better. You will get more bottom end and your engine will idle alot better. The MIP clutch comes with instructions on howto install it. If you want to just run the stock clutch though basically all you have to do to install it is just slide the shoes onto the pegs sticking out of your flywheel. You need to put them on so that the clutch shoes engage on the trailing edge (note: your engine spins counter clockwise). To get the clutch nut off the crankshaft you will need to stop the piston from turning over. The easiest way to do this is to remove the exhaust header and glow plug and then insert a large/thick zip tie in through the glo plug hole and out through the exhaust port. Then you can loosen the nut off, to tighten it back up do the same thing and slowly tighten the nut until the zip tie gets cut through, at that point the nut will be tight enough. Make sure to use locktite on the nut as well. Also if you dont have the complete building manual for the GT I would highly recommend going onto AE's site and buying one (for some reason you cant download it! Although all the others are avaliable for download). The manual shows howto build the truck from the ground up.
