Great video's showing how its done, looking forward to seeing some owners on here getting their RS sideways.
The vehicle will not let you do some of the manoeuvres that you see Ken Block doing.‘[In the Ford] if you’re going into a turn and you really want to have the vehicle’s rear end sliding into oversteer, what the system does is to send more torque and speed to the outside rear wheel to get that effect,’ Ray Kuczera, GKN’s vice president of global product technology told the aforementioned source. ‘And that’s before you press the drift button.’
The first video here shows Mr. Block driving the heck out of the Focus RS at Goodwood Festival of Speed. The second is a Gymkhana routine, and believe me, it's impressive."It allows you to do much more extreme manoeuvres than a standard car, but it’s not going to let you go crazy – you are still not Ken Block!" Ray added.
Great post, it helps to understand the specific and dynamics of what factors into it all coming together.They had an article up on the home page this week about that actually http://www.focusrsclub.com/forum/169-2016-ford-focus-rs-news/2074-drift-mode-explained.html
cheers for the vid!
