Prerunner F-150 Drifting in a Tight Parking Lot: Freaky-Ford Friday
Wet parking lot in Las Vegas serves as an interesting place for an off-road racing F-150 to go drifting.
This week’s Freaky Friday video comes to us from the YouTube channel of Evan Vendetti and it features a Ford F-150 prerunner showing off its drifting skills. We have showcased a great many prerunner trucks doing what they normally do, like racing through the mud and snow or flying through the air, but the modified F-150 in today’s video is the first that we have seen drifting on a paved surface.
The truck in this video is a 10th generation Ford F-150 that has been transformed into an street-friendly prerunner. Up front, this half-ton features an HM Racing long travel kit and out back, the owner went with a Deaver leaf pack with giant shackles, all of which makes plenty of room for the big off-road tires on aftermarket wheels.
In order to make sure that there is enough body-to-tire clearance with the new suspension and tires, the owner has installed flared front fenders and flared bedsides, along with a tubular front bumper with off-road lighting and a twin-tire rack in the bed. All of these items make this a great truck for a day of racing through the desert, but as the video shows, it also makes for a unique drift truck.
Slip Slidin’ Away
In the video above, this Ford F-150 prerunner is drifting in a fairly tight parking lot in Las Vegas. It looks as though the lot is freshly paved and it has clearly just gotten done raining, leaving a slick, wet surface behind. The lot is littered with “islands” that create some concerning obstacles, but the driver of this high-riding Ford does a great job of sliding around the parking lot, carefully avoiding the other vehicles and the many curbs.
Remarkably, an F-150 built to race through the dirt is surprisingly successful of drifting and for comparison, the video ends with a Toyota making a sad attempt to drift around the lot. Ultimately, the Tacoma just magnifies how well the big Ford slips and slides in the tight parking lot.
