I have heard the Corally 21.5 motors are fast, as for ESC, I like the Tekin RS/Pro, but others are happy with a Hobbyking ESC for its value and still a good perfomer.

Ask that question to 10 different people and you'll get 10 different answers.
This is what I have noticed to be popular around the people I race with in 21.5 blinky.

Motors. (in no set order)
Reedy Sonic
Trinity Revtech
Thunder Power
Team Powers
Speed Passion

Esc. (in no set order)
Tekin RS, RS Pro
Hobbywing Xtreme Stock
Hobbywing V2 60A SD
Hobbywing 1/2 Cell
Speed Passion

There's probably a few more that I have missed.
Also depends on your budget, Last year I bought a Tekin combo of RS esc, hotwire & 21.5 motor for about $300AU. A short time ago before the AU$ took a nose dive I picked up a Hobbywing Combo of 60A Xtreme Stock esc (not the Justock), LCD programming box & 21.5 motor for about $160AU.

I'm now having more success with my Hobbywing combo then I did with my Tekin, sure the Hobbywing motor has no timing on it but with it's torque I'm running a roll out of between 71-72 mm and the Hobbywing esc feels more "smooth" then my Tekin does.

With all the choices out there you have a lot of combinations that may or may not work for you, I got lucky with mine and am happy with the combination of performance and value for money.

Opinion #3 My personal choice in my Xray T3'10 is an LRP X-12 21.5 and the LRP SPX Zero. I run it in the USGT class at my local club. In that same club there are as many different combinations of motor's and esc's as there are personalities. Each person (as previously stated) has there own opinion as to what works best for them. Not all motors are created equally; each brand has it's own unique "feel". That is that each motor has a different torque band where it generates the most power per given timing degree and final drive ratio. And all what I just typed has largely to do with your intended use for the motor. So in the end You have to decide what works best for you. I am lucky enough to be in club where other racers offered to let me borrow their motor to see if that was the right choice for me.
