MUST SEE FOR DRIFTING FANS! Exploring The Engineering Behind Vaughn Gittin Jr’s Formula Drift Ford Mustang!
It might sound a little bit strange but a drifting car is composed by very complex engineering. Yeah, we were also surprised because we’ve seen many drifting car’s cockpits and on the way they look we thought that only a stiffer rear suspension, special tires and strong engine are enough.
Yeah, sounds like, one, two, three and you have the perfect drifting car, but the things are not standing like that! That’s why we dig deeper this time and the video we found features the engineering behind Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s drifting beast, the Ford Mustang RTR!
Starting from the engine, 410cc naturally aspirated V8 which is drinking strong fuel juice, 110 octane and delivers amazingly 840HP and 740lb-ft of torque, everything else on this Mustang is custom with high performance features. The suspension, the gear ratio, the differential, the torque splitter, every single bolt has a meaning and accompanies some other part… Someone says, less is more but in this case less is nothing!
The result is obvious, Vaughn Gittin Jr. is rocking with his Ford Mustang RTR. Yeah, drifts at high speed, crazy spins and incredible engine sound! Honestly this video raised the standards and our opinion for the drifting cars! The same will happen at your side once you watch the video below.
