“All Show’, “All Go” or Both, Why?

Currently the car is mostly show with a bit of go. Im building the car up little by little and for some reason I always start with the show aspect rather than the go part.  This is how I have always started with the rides in the past and present. I can’t seem to get enough of the street credibility although you can’t get the full amount of cred until the ride is complete.  Be on the look out for many future up-grades. New rim swap coming in the next few months as well.
