We've finally come to accept the fact that we'll never be Vaughn Gittin Jr. There can be only one one pure-bred drift hooligan of his caliber on this planet and truth be told, our sideways skills are paltry at best. That doesn't mean we can't pretend, though. Gittin Jr. has teamed up with a smattering of companies to give away five very limited-edition RC cars made up in the image of his sinister Ford Mustang GT drift machine. Only 5,000 of the HPI RC Ford Mustang cars will be produced in total, and Gittin Jr. is giving five of them away to Facebook fans.

To get the word out, Gittin Jr., K&N, Monster Energy and Falken Tire crafted a video demonstrating just what happens when the drifter can't get his hands on the scale Mustang. An epic chase ensues, with the RC car taking a little "How it's Made" tour of the K&N factory. The clip also features a few outtakes worth watching, as well. We won't spoil it for you, but we will say more than one RC car gave its life in the making of the film. Hit the jump to check out the video for yourself. If you want to enter the sweepstakes, head over to the K&N Facebook page for more information.

      Drifting is the rhythmic gymnastics of motorsport.

      My three and a half year old daughter was really really mad when the RC car was ran over the first time.

      In my book Vaugh Gittin Jr. and Ken Block are on the same "hype list."

        Hype list? Really? I'll give you Ken Block on his efforts in the WRC. But Vaughn Gittin, Jr. has already won a whole bunch of times in Formula D. He already has a championship, and was the first ever American driver to win in an international D1GP event. So seriously, stop with your obsession on putting down Monster Energy/Ford Racing drivers.

          And? what's your point? There are MANY great-talented drifters out there, and Gittin Jr. rubs me the wrong way.

        @Alex Butti
        And why does he rub you the wrong way? Because he likes to do promos like every athlete in the world?

      Oh man! I love my Team Associated truck, it is amazing what a good R/C car/truck can do. If you are a good parent who is into cars, you NEED to buy one for you (and your kids). I have one that is 19 years old, my dad built when I was little, and it still runs/kicks ass. Plus you can get a RTR kit that will do 104 mph out of the box.

        I had one of the original RC-10's with the gold-anodized aluminum tub chassis...I got back into r/c cars for the hell of it a few years ago, since I could never afford everything I wanted to get the first time around. There's a hell of a difference now that I can afford to get what I want, when I want it. The great thing is, they're still as much fun as they were when I was younger!
