Default controller for mgt for local races

I am looking for a new fm system for running my mgt. I do plan to do some racing at the local track. I want to spend $100-200 for the setup. The less money I spend on the controller the more I can spend on the truck. Is there really that big a difference in the fm systems that use crystals?

Also, One mag says the steering servo is very good then another mag says it needs a little more...Should I get a radio with a great servo for the steering?

the JR XS3 is a great radio,FM,synth you can uaually find them cheap on ebay like 100.00 new.

with the left over buy a good servo like a hitec5645 had great luck with that one. my LHS sells them for 54.99
