I wonder, did you ever do some own research?

There are so many "what is the best..." topics to find.

Beside that, any preferences and budget?

There is no one best product for any of these items.

These threads usually only bring either some useful but rather general advice (so you still have to do your own research to decide) or you will hear from people who want you to get what they use - even though they may have little experience over all or may have never tried a different product to theirs. Or they just want to push their sponsors, etc... often bold caims with little to no reason given.

And Roelof is right: these "What's the best..." threads pop up regularly. There's probably dozens all over RCtech already.

Anyway some basic recommendations (I'm not claiming for anything to be "the best" - just solid, good options):
ESC - I've been happy with Hobbywing for many years and so have many of my club mates. Other options available.
Servos - too diverse to single any of them out. I've been happy with my Sanwa servos, but there are lots of others out there.
Motor - that's where you'll hear the wildest stories and claims, based on personal preference. Personally I race either mod classes or stock classes with spec motor, so no personal opinion from me.
Radios - pretty much anything from Sanwa (except the MX-6), Futaba, or the Flysky Noble (including Pro or Plus models) is usually a solid to excellent choice. Lots of personal preference, too. Pricing is a major factor, too.
Battery - Again, lots of personal preference and you'll hear lots of different claims about what's "best". Personally, if I had to get a new battery now, I'd try EAM. They seemed to have left a very good impression at the 1/12th worlds. No personal experience with them yet. But again, other good batteries out there as well.

Welcome back to RC. As a place to start from, why not go with the Reedy ensemble as shown in the spec sheet? Just a thought and my 2cents. -AC

It's not so much about "What's the best." It's more about "What can you afford." Certain price points can have a "best product."

Example: What's the best Racing ESC for under $65?
Answer: HobbyWing Justock Xerun XR10 G3.
