Time to Drift in a Mustang With Vaughn Gittin Jr.

Drifting

"Drifting is essentially a dog fight." - Vaughn Gittin Jr.

Want to know what it’s like to be behind the wheel of a drifting competition spec Ford Mustang? Of course you do, and today Mustang RTR creator Vaughn Gittin Jr. is giving online viewers the chance. With an 850 horsepower Ford Racing engine under the hood, the Mustang RTR is a custom-built, all-American drift machine that competes in a sport that’s mainly dominated by foreign cars. As host Justin Bell learns from Gittin Jr. himself, drifting is more than just man and machine going sideways.

There’s actually a lot more going on in terms of lateral grip and control. Call it science in motion. Sure, the stock Mustang sold in dealers right now is a highly capable drift machine, but it's not as insane as the Mustang RTR.
