    Nothing don't even look at it, learn how to throw the car and you'll be one of the few in mustangs that don't do lazy hydro drags.

    Learn without is better, then fit one to use as or if you need it.

    Yeah. Because you need to rip that E brake and then y'all need to power over. That is HOW you drift ¬_¬

    Whats an E break? I mean, I know its the handbreak,, but why do the Americans call it an E break? It cant stand for emergency, because, well, thats going to go wrong!

    As others have said, if it hasnt got an LSD just weld the diff and go have some fun. Just find somewhere safe & legal to play, start off trying to do a controled power slide donut, then move onto a figure of 8. This will get you practicing your throttle control.

    Most cars in America run automatic transmission.

    In an auto you put the box in 'Park' which locks the transmission in place stopping the car from moving.
    That means the handbrake is now a secondary brake, only needed in an emergancy if the Park brake on the transmission fails.

    Don't they call it like an emergency brake? Even though you shouldn't pull it in an emergency...

    Just the generic name it's given.

    When was the last time you saw someone actually keep a pair of gloves in the glovebox??
    Usually it's full of old receipts, sweets and pens.
