    We had some incredible good fortune a few weeks back at Formula Drift Round 4 at Wall Stadium. Vaughn Gittin Jr., gave us a walkaround of his 2013 RTR prototype and we were able to borrow the car to cruise the Jersey Shore for a few hours.

    Hey, So I have a few questions about drifting, hopefully you guys can answer them. :) First of all, is it possible to even drift with a v6 stang? And I am guessing it probably wouldn't work with it just stock or with a few minor bolt-ons, so what needs to be added to a v6 to be able to? And how...
