Don't know if its considered performance, but I will be installing the air ride suspension in weeks to come.

“All Show’, “All Go” or Both, Why?

It’s all show. It's a Scion xA 1.5L motor, not very much horsepower, but with the suspension, body kit, and paint. Really not looking to go too fast with it.

I would love to give a shout out to all my friends in alpha SQUAD, AFTERMATH, and SCIONAPOCALYPSE. I would like to give a shout to all the companies that have supported me.
