Default Crystal Switching... will it work?

I'm just wondering is it possible to switch crystal of different brand TX and RX?

I had a 2 car, 1 is a Kosho RTR equipt with Preflex RX & Servo and the other car is equipt with Futaba RX, TX & servos. I was wondering can i switch the crystal of the PREFLEX TX to my FUTABA 3PM FS PRO TX and use it to drive my PREFLEX RX & Servo equipt car.

Is crystal Universal? or are they dependednt onthe right RX & TX to work?

IF it is 27mhz AM then yes. If it is not, then you need to get the crystal designed for that system.

FYI: I used an Airtronics M8 Tx with a JR synthesized Rx, the one you can dial any channel into. I used the M8's Tx crystal.

Most of the time even FM crystals are interchangeable, but there is no guarantee this will work.
The 'generic' receivers (protech for instance) usually take most crystals. I've had less luck with mixing and matching transmitter crystals though....
