Well if your asking me I would say Slingshot batteries are the best but you will get many different company names from this question If you want battery brand I would say that the East Power 4200 or the E-power 4500 are the most durable cells.

EP cells are great, i would also recomend slingshot. Checkpoint makes a great motor, you can also look into motor tuning companies like banzai motors

I haven't tried Checkpoint motors yet. Right now I'm using Team Orion OJ signature series Revolution motors, which I really like. Huge power and the wear is fairly low, but perhaps the best part is the fact you don't have to solder the wires onto the motor.
