    negatives are.. It stops your bird playing with your knob while driving as she will be stroking the driftstick instead. Benefits are.. You can tell your mates you drift like Ken Block just as you slide into a tree..



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    Anyone tried this with custom tune/remap?

    I have RS with Dreamscience / Ultima 2+flashed but I cant find answer anywhere if this drift stick flashing / ABS calibration process goes if you have custom tune.

    I asked from Dreamscience about it, but they didnt even know what is drift stick, so I got no confimation if this going to work.

    My RS is LHD and I found some german forum post that this will work in EU / LHD car.

    I have read it and there is this message:

    CAUTION! If a dealer or installation facility has installed and programmed your vehicle, be sure to obtain the USB cable and PC3 file from the installation facility. It is be required to restore the previous calibration or make modifications to the vehicle configuration after the vehicle has been programmed.

    I think that I can always revert back from Dreamscience to stock and use drift stick but I am afraid that if I flash/calibrate Dreamscience tune/remap with drift stick calibration I cant get back to original Dreamscience tune/remap and then back to stock.

    Mountune webshop sells drift stick so I think it will work with they tune/remap but as Dreamscience have no idea how this works and they cant confirm that I can try something I need to skip this product. It would be so cool but it is expensive decoration if I cant use it 🙂
