I'm finally at the point where I can now introduce to Camaro 5 HATERADE.

Intro: I bought this 2012 Camaro 1LT back in June 2012 as an impulse buy. I was at a Starbucks doing work one sunday afternoon and the Chevy dealer was next door. I was actually looking for a Tahoe but didn't find what I like. However, as I was walking out I looked at this IOM Camaro and said "I want to test drive that!" The rest was history! What made me buy the Camaro was a few days before that I watched TF3 and we were 1 week away from July 4th so I felt very patriotic *I guess*. This was my first American car as I have owned 5 import cars in the past. I had been looking at the Challenger and Mustang (never test drove them)but never really pulled the trigger. Somehow the Camaro had my name on it.

My 2012 Camaro 1LT came stock with 90mi on the Ometer without the RS package but I did have a few other dealer installed options. it wasn't too long until the first mod began which was the blacked out taillight bezel. One thing led to another and how It's HATERADE! Enjoy my journey creating HATERADE.

Special thanks to:

If the car feels like it is on rails, you are probably driving too slow. -Ross Bentley

Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

“If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.” Mario Andretti

If you can turn, you ain't going fast enough...
