I think in the right hands, it could be competitive. If you think about every kit that's out on the market now.Has to be tweaked one way or another to get what performance that the driver requires or desires from it. Otherwise there wouldn't be any need for the tips and tricks threads. It's the nature of the beast,so with that said This one just might take or might not take a little bit more time to get it up to speed.

I purchased this bike and out of the box I needed more speed. I put a Sidewinder 2 on it but now I can't seem to balance that front tire. Anyone else have one?

The April 2012 issue of RC Car Action will have an article I wrote in it with a bunch of DXR500 tips. It should hit the newsstands and hobby shops in about two weeks.

Thanks, man -- I hope you enjoy the article. Actually, I've been with Air Age Media since 2002 now, writing for RC Car Action, and all the various special issues and annual Buyer's Guides. I think I've done about nine or ten bike articles throughout our magazines over the years, but if I had my choice, I'd have a monthly column to focus just on bikes. (Maybe I should be careful what I wish for...)

The official title of the article is "How to Race-prep Your On-road Bike". It has tips for the SB5, DXR500, and FM-1e/SF-50x bikes. There is also a cameo appearance by Jimmy's Eini-bike.
