Sadly by the time you can fly your new racer well enough to race it, it will be behind the technology that was developed while it was being made/shipped.
Things are moving very fast in this area. But you have to get started somewhere so pick the one that will be easiest to fix and get flying.

To answer your question more directly. All of them look like they could fly fast enough to be competitive. I have seen several races where the last place quad won as the others crashed out and where the first place quad was identical to others in the race but lapped the field. Remember that it is more than the quad racing and you will crash. Have fun and be safe

This issue was touched on in this tread.......:

Like Flubber eluded to...........crashing and rebuilding is a major part of the racing game. It seems to me that it would be more "practical" to build yourself a beater" with a decent FPV system to learn on.....then go out and compete with a better craft that can be "plug & play" assembled.......seems it would save more time and money in the long run since crashing is inevitable regardless what you build or buy..........even the pro's will tell you that.........
