First Electronic Handbrake made available on Ford Focus RS
For most people, when you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, you just want to get from point A to point B without running into a ton of traffic. Cars are simply seen as tools to get you to your destination without any fuss. However, there are some who view their vehicle as a finely tuned, precision machine that can lead to a lot of fun. Ford is reaching out to the people who want to have a good time when they get behind the wheel with the first electronic handbrake.
This new optional accessory on the Ford Focus RS has been designed so that drivers can take their vehicle on the track and experience a clutch free drift. Placed between the driver’s seat and the manual transmission, the Drift Stick utilizes the all-wheel drive-system and the antilock braking system to open the rear-drive unit clutches and lock the rear wheels, making the car drift with a single lever.
Watch the Drift Stick in action
New features are introduced on Ford vehicles all of the time, but how can drivers truly know if they’re worth the price if they can’t see them in action? Luckily, if you’re interested in the Drift Stick, you can watch Ken Block, a professional rally driver, take it for a spin.
