Ford Performance Drift Stick for 2016, 2017 and 2018 Focus RS: the first-ever, rally-inspired electronic handbrake, developed and designed for Focus RS and approved by rally and stunt star Ken Block.
Note: Available for purchase in March 2018.
The Drift Stick is an aluminum lever between the driver's seat and manual transmission on a Focus RS and utilizes the all-wheel-drive system in conjunction with the antilock braking system. The lever opens the rear-drive unit clutches and applies hydraulic pressure to lock the rear wheels, inducing a drift with the simple pull of a lever. The results are clutch-free drift turns very similar to the experience of a real rally car.
Ken Block, of Gymkhana/rally/stunt/drifting video fame, had final sign off on the product and pushed for the electronic handbrake to provide every-day drivers with the quickest possible way to get the Focus RS sideways for large-angle drifts.
