She is an amazing young woman that not only works for Revo Biolabs/Tbolt™, but is also sponsored by them (as well as several other companies) in car rallies. And in case you haven’t heard of Tbolt products, their 6-hour energy shot E-Drive is our favorite at MySickRide.com (and no, we don’t get them for free, haha!)
Check out their site when you are done reading this article and checking out the pictures of Tina’s sick ride! The site is: www.TryTbolt.com
MSR: So Tina how did you become aware of and interested in car rallies?
TINA: I have several ideas as to how I became interested in them, but I know that there is not just one thing that drew me in. Growing up, my dad was always purchasing fast cars and would work on them all day to make them even faster. His obsession always fascinated me and although I had no interest back then, I was more than curious as to why he loved speed so much. A part of me feels that falling in love with cars was my subconscious’ way of trying to get closer and spend more time with my Dad.
MSR: So was a fast car number one on your list when you started driving?
TINA: When I was finally of age to get a car, I kept telling myself that I wanted to get the best gas mileage I could so that I could save money for other things. Although my first car had a four-cylinder engine and got a whopping 35mpg, I wasn’t satisfied.
MSR: So did you move up to a better, faster car or opt for modifications on that first car?
TINA: Through my research, I joined different forums and learned about certain things that I could do to my car that would not only help me get better gas mileage, but would also make my car faster. Problem was, I soon became more in love with speed and less interested in miles per gallon.
MSR: Haha that has happened to all of us here at My Sick Ride! We totally get it!
TINA: As the passion of car building started planting its roots and began to take over, I met some amazing people along the way who introduced me to car rallies, car races, autocross and track days. Although I didn’t have as much experience as the other drivers, I took a dare and tried it, just once. I remember nervously clutching my wheel at the start line of my first rally, but as soon as we took off all those feelings were left in the dust. The rush and the adrenaline have this way of controlling your body and the feeling is unmatched. I wanted more! It’s now more of an obsession than a hobby as the speed and challenges are incredibly addicting.
MSR: We would be worried for you if we didn’t all consider obsessions with speed and cars a way of life as well! So this is just the beginning for you? It sounds like you are going to keep going on this crazy, fun ride and make quite the name for yourself in the process.
TINA: Well – Here I am, three car builds and several car rallies later. I am so in love with the adventure, the speed and the cars, I have no idea when or if it will ever end. I look back at the days as a little girl when I used to watch my dad build cars and know I am experiencing the passion I saw in his eyes that I once envied so much.
MSR: Well Tina, we wish you all the best in your pursuit of speed and look forward to following your career! And for those of our fans that want to keep up as well – you can follow Tina via her blog at: http://www.tboltproducts.com/blog/ or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Tboltextreme
