Mine, in no particluar order since I couldn't decide.

Pro-Line (for providing the lexan and rubber)
Tamiya (for a lifetime of RC dedication)
HPI/HB (quickly gaining ground to become, if not already, in the top three of RC)
Tower Hobbies (for sheer size and scope)
Speedtech (for gearing towards the "Racer")

Honorable Mention:
Traxxas for their committment to the RTR scene.

Team Platinum Racing (Ok, I'm a little bias!)
Tamiya (I'm a collector, I'm obligated to say Tamiya, you know how it is)
Traxxas (My main racer!)
Team Losi (High quality, and they actually use a system of measurement I can understand!)
Trinity

It was close, especially with heavy hitters like Novak, Asssociated, ProLine, Integy, and all the others. I actually believe that most of them stand on the same tier, but you said 5, so I listed the 5 I thought made the biggest impact. Being the owner of my own R/C parts manufacturer, how can I leave myself out?

You've got every scientific mind on rcTech scratching their heads about that one...

In no certain order
  • Team Losi
  • Team Associated
  • Team Novak
  • Hitec
  • Proline/Protoform

I feel there are others that should be listed. A top ten might be a little easier to do.
