While we’re not the most versed drifting guys in the world, we know entertaining video when we see it! This three minute film shows drift-master Vaughn Gittin Jr. chasing a miniature of himself in his K&N backed Ford Mustang. While Gittin’s skills are on full display for all to see, the dude who was off camera driving the R/C car needs some love too because he’s a master! At the end you’ll see a few outtakes where the R/C car falls prey to the full sized, tire smoking beast that Gittin drives, but during the actual edited film, it is poetry in motion.
Vaughn is a neat guy and his Mustang is a true tire shredding screamer. We have been him at work in person and the man can handle a car like few others. Note some of the finesse work he performs in this video, like sending the back end of the car under a trailer and not peeling the roof off, a la Smokey and the Bandit!
K&N is using this video as the intro for a program where you can sign up to win one of the R/C cars featured in the film. They’re not going to give you one of the squashed ones, instead you’ll be able to wing your ‘lectronic Mustang around at home and pretend you too are Vaughn Gittin!
