The V-8 engine revs and roars as the rear tires teeter on the edge of traction. Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s light touch on the steering wheel delivers seemingly effortless car control as his Mustang RTR slides right where he was it to go.
Drifting requires a special driving skill set, and Vaughn definitely has the gift. We have ridden with him as he mirrored the movements of another Mustang just a couple of feet away, and it is a sight to behold. If you haven’t had the chance to strap into one of Vaughn’s Mustang RTRs, you can now do it virtually thanks to a new video from Nitto Tire…
“Experience drifting like you have never before!” says the video description. “Ride along with Vaughn Gittin Jr. in his Monster Energy/Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR and get sideways around Angel Stadium during Auto Enthusiast Day 2015 Presented by Driving Line.”
To get the full 360-degree experience as Vaughn shreds those Nitto NT555 G2 tires, there are a few ways to enjoy this video. If you own an Android device, you can watch in on the YouTube and move your device around to see the different angles. If you want to watch it on your computer, use the Google Chrome browser and you can use the mouse to change your view.
Those wanting a virtual-reality-style experience, you can use Google Cardboard to turn your Android device into a VR headset.
