Watch Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Friends Tandem Drift With A Camera Car
Our favorite part? When Gittin Jr., Geoff Stoneback, Ryan Tuerck and Chris Forsberg divebomb a downhill chicane, using the rolling camera car as a clipping point.
Drifting is difficult to master, so pro drifters Vaughn Gittin Jr., Ryan Tuerck and Chris Forsberg polish their craft every chance they get. Drifting YouTube channel Donut Media just shared some rad footage of the trio horsing around at Gridlife South in Atlanta, Georgia.
Gitten Jr.'s Competition RTR Mustang needs little introduction, but Tuerck and Forsberg opted to take their "street" cars on the track instead. Tuerck's wide body gray FR-S is stripped, caged, 2JZ-swapped (and previously painted white), and good for 500 horsepower. Meanwhile, Forsberg's plain-white Infiniti M35 grandfather-mobile is actually stripped and caged like Tuerck's monster—but swapped with Nissan's VK56DE motor, courtesy of a Nissan Titan pickup truck. Nismo individual throttle bodies, Jim Wolf camshafts, and JBA tubular headers help massage the V8 to easily make 500 horsepower.

Donut Media thinks its video could be the best drifting footage ever. No, but it's certainly among the greats. Our favorite part? When Gittin Jr., surprise guest Geoff Stoneback in the Nissan S14, Tuerck and Forsberg dived into the downhill chicane, using the rolling camera car as a clipping point as they blast past sideways. Even the cameraman couldn't help but let out a giggle at the 2:37 mark.
Forsberg shared the moment on his Instagram so that you can all watch the moment—again and again:
