Crystals should come in two packs, one for the receiver and one for the transmitter, you should use the same frequency crystal in both.

the rx and tx need to be the same frequency to work
as freak said they should come in a pack of 2 from a LHS;)

Not unless you remove the filters from the receiver, and then you can expect mass glitching when anyone else is running between 24mhz and 30mhz. RC car receivers don't come in 29mhz; do you have a link to your receiver?

I thought it was just AM, FM and 2.4ghz and the crystals tell you the actual frequency (unless you're using 2.4ghz). You won't happen to be using a wal-mart-esque R/C car, would you?

What you want to hear is no you cannot use a 27mhz transmitter with a 29mhz reciever. I'm assuming your reciever is quite old, as I also have 29mhz gear in my on road tourer, which I used to use back in the late 80's. If your having trouble finding a new transmitter, you may need to get a new reciever also, and switch to 27mhz.
