Cant help you with the vector as I run a tekin setup with some 5s turnigys. I really like the turnigy batteries as they are cheap and offer great value. People have said great things about the gens ace batteris but they always seem to be out of stock.

As for servos I really like the xp ds1015. I think they are great and run them in my sc10 4x4 and rc8be. Super fast, plenty strong and offer good value. Others hae good luck with savoxs and of course the venerable 7955tg from hitec. I love snappy fast servos which is why I go with the xp. If your interested in the xp ace offers a ds1015 that is identical for about the same price.
