Ken Block's 14y/o Daughter Gets Drift Lessons from Formula Drift Champ -Vaughn Gittin Jr.
When we set out to build the Vanilla Ice inspired, drop top 5.0 Fox body Mustang, we had one major goal in mind - Teach my daughter Lia to drift with it. For her instructor, I enlisted the help of my friend and Formula Drift Champion, Vaughn Gittin Jr. As it turned out, Lia would get the FULL drift experience. Breaking parts, track side modifications, running out of fuel, and persevering through it all to finally nail the final trick. The Borla Exhaust completely changed the tune of this Fox and not surprisingly, the Toyo Tires we ran held up through the entire day!

    Drifting is about feeling it in the seat of your pants. With all that open space, close your eyes and trust the equipment and training. Then the lightbulb moment happens!

    This is why the Camaro is better at least one of the many reasons. I had an 87 iroc had it for 15 years no issues and I didn't almost everything to it I just needed to catch it on fire 🔥 but everything else is did. Sold it because it was parked out front but I didn't really use it. All my friends had 5.0 mustangs they all died from one thing or another. 😂🤣😂🤣

    The fox body (Hatchback) 5L Windsor block was one of the lightest pony cars of it's era. The Windsor block was the lightest of Ford's V8s at the time (Compared with the M, and Cleveland blocks) and the Mustang wasn't a heavy car, either. Pretty perfect for quarter mile, especially with a stroker kit to up the torque, a C6 transmission with a floor shifter... Honestly, I don't know much about drifting, I'm old, but back in my day, that was pretty much the car to beat in drag racing. Not counting more expensive heavier cars like the 'vette. Those brute forced to get the Power/Weight ration, but the pony cars were actually relatively svelte. Not the best handling, though. So, they must have done a lot on the back end to make it controlable.

Besides this is a total clapped out s#itbox of a car. So are you retiring Ken NO More Ford, No more Hooingan Mustang. (I'll just sit back and make money from my kid?) No more me watching Mr Block............. It's over

    She needs wheel work. All this is much easier if her hands stay apart (Shuffle steering) and she learns to use caster effect to her benefit. Feel the car, work the drift, let the steering wheel spin through your hands and look where you want to go. A little practice and she'll be a natural.
