Accel and Zephyr are known to have really good tornado stalling capabilities (effectively making them mobile Stamina Drivers) and the super tight spring means that they only lose when they're KOed or when an opponent's raw Stamina is better than the Tornado Staller. Combos with high Stamina shouldn't be so hard to Burst, since they're meant to lose to Attack Beys.
I'm not familiar with burst classic but can't you use something like Atomic or Bearing?

Kind of obvious. One has great stamina and the other has great defense.

Then why aren't they banned in the regular competition?

Both are banned.

Only Hasbro's Bearing is banned because it's too tight.

There aren't as many things that can counter Atomic in Classic as in Standard. In Standard, you can use a lot of things to out-LAD Atomic, but most people would be using Atomic on Right Spin combos in Classic, meaning that only Dragoon S, Dragoon F, and Dragoon V combos with high LAD can consistently outspin it, which is rare because Hasbro Bearing is banned, no one uses TT Bearing, Xtend+ is banned, and Dragoon F isn't used on Destroy very often.

Illegal
αssault'

Recent events have proven αssault' to perform similarly to the banned Accel' and Zephyr' Drivers.
Then why is accel’ and zephyr’ banned?

I believe it has something to do with its tornado stalling movements while preserving it's own stamina: simply put, high stamina dash drivers
