I can't speak for the racing end of things but for bashinf the Firestorm is almost bulletproof. A buddy of mine has one and in a gallon and a half of heavy bashing the only things to break were a oneway bearing, clutch spring, and the wing off the body. You will want to add a rx pack when funds are available, that made a huge difference.

Hope this helps
