Regular readers know the last time Lethal Performance picked up a new project vehicle at Weikert Ford in Lake Wales, Florida, that the company did so in smoking style. So, when Team Lethal got word that its 2016 Focus RS was on the way, the company hatched a plan to give the car’s infamous Drift Mode a test right there on the dealer lot.

This is how to properly take delivery of your new Focus RS project car—with Ford Performance/Multimatic Motorsports driver Billy Johnson ensuring that Drift Mode works properly.

“We have been buying cars from these guys since 2008. That’s where it started with these guys and ever since then we continue to purchase our cars from them,” Jared explained. “As always, we like to do something special when we take delivery of our cars. Typically we like to beat the crap out of them. Our last car, you probably saw, we had our GT350 here and we started doing some burnouts in the front of the lot here.”

That last time resulted in a nice test of the car’s Line Lock feature right in front of the dealership. Lethal Performance’s Jonas Cooper did a massive burnout in the car before even driving it off the lot to head down its path to supercharged stardom as the first 10-second GT350.
