I use a tc2 esc and and well i am thinking that any esc would work for drifting as long as the esc can handle your motor

and when you say "firebird" (also what year?) do you mean the REAL car and well if you drifting in that i would STONGLY NOT recomend that for drifting because the suspension design on that car is NOT good

sorry but i would get a different car to drift
