Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle 2 : Details on the Mustang Cobra!

The mustang has the following mods to help it be the beast it was for the video. All work including paint, and custom welding was done by Car Crafters in Albuquerque, NM by Sean, Luigi and Brian!

The car is now for sale!!!

Quick over view of the car:
Dynoed at 490 hp and 490 ft lbs of torque
Fully customized and modified suspension
4 point roll cage with Sparco seats and 5 point belts

a. Upgraded fuel injectors
b. Terminator throttle body
c. Custom x-pipe exhaust - no cats or mufflers, stops just past rear axle making it legal for any drift organization.
d. Custom air intake
e. Port and Polished supercharger
f. Billet pulley system for 12 plus lbs of boost
g. AC compressor eliminator
h. Aeromotive fuel pump with return system for constant high pressure
i. MSD 2-step rev-limiter, cuts the ignition before the fuel, unlike the stock ECU and is much better on the engine.

a. Eliminated the AC condenser for better cooling
b. Big aftermarket power steering cooler 
c. Steeda heat exchanger
d. Big aluminum radiator
e. Dual electric fans for over 2,000 cfm of air flow

a. Full Maximum Motorsports track package, minus cross member, to remain legal for all drifting organizations. This includes their purpose built dampeners, coil-over adders with correct spring rates, upper camber / caster plates, strut brace, all bushings replaced (including all of the rear IRS bushings), tie rod ends with bump steer adjustment. 
b. Custom blocks were made to relocate the front sway bar to allow for more steering angle
c. The front lower control arms were all custom fabbed out of DOM tubing. We had to make two different sets. The first set was very close to the stock arms just with more room but we found that we needed more camber and caster so a second set was made an inch and a half longer and we relocated the lower ball joint. Both sets will be included.
d. Front knuckles were cut and reinforced to allow for more angle and also worked to make sure the bump steer was perfect.
e. The final alignment was done and a lot of work has been done to make it handle great for drifting. On top of the alignment, the car is scaled and set-up for correct ride height, front to rear balance and cross weight.

a. All the stock interior has been removed. This includes the heater box, radio, ac, stereo, carpet, headliner, center console, air bags, the stock steering column, etc.
b. The stock steering column was replaced with a solid shaft and a quick release racing steering wheel.
c. The ignition, starter, police lights, wipers, fuel pump, and fans are all on a custom carbon dash panel where the old radio was.
d. The boost gauge, water temp gauge, oil pressure gauge are all mounted on a custom carbon panel.
e. The headlights still operate from the stock switch.
f. The RPM, Speed, and other stock gauges work.
g. Sparco Racing Seats
h. 5-point racing harness for the driver and a 4 point harness for the passenger
i. Battery relocated to behind the passenger seat to offset the weight of the driver
j. 4 point roll cage is in the car currently, this will be legal for most pro-am drifting.

Someone made the car on forza 4! If you see more, screen shot them and post them in the comments section :)

Hope this helps to answer some of the questions floating around out there about it :)

This was submitted in the comments section, and he did an amazing job and after 8 hours of work produced this! attention to detail is spot on! His xbl gamertag is TehScrmin3agl3 Hit him up and buy this from his storefront!


  1. Hello Dan, followed you from youtube, I used your ref pics to make my own forza creation. I created everything from scratch and most of the decals' letters had to be made block by block. I put 8 hours into it now, (I've been up all night and chugged 7 java monsters) but I finally got it done. I hope yall enjoy it as much as I do.
    More pics available upon request, e-mail is

    1. I also fixed the spelling error and made the paint job for the cobra stang too. The fixed ones are up on my storefront, my username is my GT.

  2. That looks amazing!!! I am going to throw them in the blog post if you don't mind :)

  3. Thank you! Here is a pic of the fixed version. I guess no sleep and monster doesn't help spelling abilities.

  4. Those are MB Battles. 18x9.75 +15 :)

    1. I would have expected -15 with the concave appearance. Shame they don't come any wider. I need some in 10.5" for my Termi...

    2. what's the front wheel size?

    3. where did you find 18x9.75? I've only found 18x9.5. not a huge differance, but at least for the rear the that extra .25 helps

  5. Post interior pics to see how the stang looks striped

  6. I'll see if I can sneak in there and snap some shots for you :)
