In his latest video #MustangMeltdown, Vaughn Gittin Jr. reveals his all-new 2015 livery and pushes the limits of physics from behind the wheel of his prototype competition 2015 Ford Mustang RTR on the ice-covered Warners Lake in East Berne, New York. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO
Vaughn and his team will be using this car to develop the brand-new and extremely impressive 2015 Ford Mustang chassis to support his global drift efforts in the future. In the meantime, Vaughn will compete behind the wheel of a revamped and Ready to Rock 2014 Mustang RTR sporting his new livery. Development will take place during private test sessions and through drift demos / exhibitions all over the world. Be on the lookout for this man and machine to be slaying tires at a track near you soon!
To successfully slay Warners Lake, Vaughn relied on the over 800 studs that were hand-installed in each Nitto Tire to keep him and his under 3000lb wide-body 2015 Ford Mustang RTR glued to the track for his first-time-ever drifting on the ice experience.
“This video shoot was about having fun while debuting our new livery on our prototype competition car in a unique way,” says professional funhaver and Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. “It was such a blast, but also a pretty insane experience for me with such a fast-paced learning curve. This was my first time ever driving on studs, yet alone drifting on ice. Not to mention I was behind the wheel of our one-of-a-kind prototype competition car, so there was no pressure to not destroy the car or anything! My mind was blown how well the car worked on the ice. After a few quick tests to feel the grip levels, I started tossing the car into drift extremely hard and fast – it was like the car was built for ice and I knew what I was doing! I was pretty amazed of what a 2015 Mustang with over 3200 studs and a set of Nitto Tires can do on the ice; it was not much different than driving on asphalt. As a very serious professional funhaver, you can bet I definitely did not want the day to end!”
