in short, yes that TX can work with the trucks, but that TX will not work with those RX installed on the trucks. to get that controller to work in those trucks you will need to get a receiver compatible with your TX.
is your MX-3 the 75mhz version or the 2.4ghz? if it is a 75mhz (crystals) version i would highly suggest getting a 2.4ghz radio system, if yours is the 2.4ghz version i would try to find a compatible receiver.
if yours is the 75mhz version or if it is difficult to find a receiver compatible with the 2.4ghz may look into this radio system:
44$ GT3C (has a rechargeable battery)
37$ GT3B (uses 8 AA batteries.)

Check the servo connector from the servo for corrosion. If it’s clean, try another servo. When the steering servo stops working, try plugging the throttle servo into the steering channel on the receiver and see if it works. If it does, then the servo is bad.
