The Drift Stick uses the RS' all-wheel-drive and antilock brake systems to help initiate drifts by opening the rear clutches and using hydraulic pressure to lock the back wheels when pulling the aluminum lever.

Drift Stick was developed by the same team of engineers who worked on the Focus RS' Drift Mode.

Ford says the implementation of a hydraulic handbrake would be more involved and not easily reversible, while the electronic system uses existing Focus RS hardware and requires less pressure than a hydraulic unit to engage and disengage.
