It is possible, heres a tip, DONT! Its just a stupid idea! Theres a good risk you'll hurt yourself and your ride! So do your self a favor and just keep to the burn outs!

Your answer is yes, however don't expect anything like formula drift stuff, but yes you can get sideways. Instill don't recommend it!

Re: how to drift in an auto v6 mustang ?

I have a 2010 v6 and i can still drift it like a dream,even 80 horse power short of yours Just turn off traction control and use your gears underneath drive. I usually roll into turns doing 10, start drifting in first gear, and pop it into second after i hit about 20. Highly suggest using a CLOSED COURSE.

Re: how to drift in an auto v6 mustang ?

I used to have an auto suv...with 20s on it. It was rear wheel drive and when there was wet pavement i could do nice powerslides...snow....i could do a powerslide down an entire block....now i have my manual mustang...first stickshift car ive owned...got the hang of it right away its so much fun...ill nvr go back to auto for a sports car! And its such a nice car i dont want to drift it...those pirellis are not cheap to replace. If you want to turn heads just make your stang look good and do the speed limit. Let hondas and neons speed by u all day...the stang drives and looks amazing even slow. People will respect you for driving with respect. Speed and drift around and look like a moron and theyll just be hoping you smash into a pole!

Not to hijack the thread... but how do they sound? From videos i thought they sounded great on the 4.0's but wasn't too impressed on the 3.7's. Better in person I'm sure??

I really like the catback exhaust I know this is probably a dumb question but does the exhaust increase the car's performance

Can you do it, sure! Just stick to sanctioned events like I do. I've seen a few auto cars do well, but I don't expect it would be great. What are are you from, any events in your area.

Why don't you buy an older car and designate it for drifting? Even in wide open spaces or sanctioned events there's a high risk of damaging or wrecking your mustang.

I've got a car that I use for drift... It's not a mustang though. Click image for larger version

If you go to a scca sanctioned event, it's highly unlikely that an accident would happen. But would still be possible. Building a car is great if you have the funds, but I drift mine! Course I'm braver than most when it comes to my stang. Than and I have a daily.

Lol I'm not a crazy professional drifter I don't enter any events or competition I usually do it for so I could have better car control and and impress a few Btw i have sucussefuly figured how to the drift the only main concern is I can't hold the car sideways for long enough because the car decides to shift maybe if I start on third and the gear decides to downshifts to 2nd because I usually start on first gear and hold it sideways then the gear shift to second and I usually drift in a very open space I know what some of u are asking why don't I drift with a ****ty car the only problem with that is I don't have any extra money to buy a crappy car

Btw random fact in Finland to pass your driving test you have to be able to perform a successful powerslide because if u can control your car from skidding or sliding u should be able to handle it and not panic like a *****

dude dont drift a mustang if your going to drift get a light tuner such as a 240sx they can be purchased really cheap and if u get the jdm engine from the s13 version it will be a drift machine. not saying a mustang cant drift it just takes a toll on the car and if u watch the drift circuit you will notice the muscle cars are pushing loads more power than the tuners are which with a v6 i dont know how well itd work
