JASON WEBB: BEHIND THE MONSTANG

Aug 172017

Jason Webb is currently on a warpath, slaying his way to the top of every podium in sight. Thanks to Roush/Ford performance and Jason's team consisting of his dad "Speedy" Webb, Malcolm Pheifer and Smoke'm Garage/CVP's Matthew Benas, this project has now become a reality. After taking back to back wins at the last two rounds of the 2017 SupaDrift season, get a closer look at the two times National Drift Champion's Ford Performance Roush 5.0 Mustang, suitably dubbed - "The Monstang"!

This is the first time in South African motorsport history that a modern high end production car has been purpose built into a 100% specific drift race car! Jason and his team have been working on this car night and day for months to transform it from a luxury street beast into a stripped out Roush Level 3 V8 Supercharged 727HP tire slaying track weapon! With top of the line performance parts from Roush/Ford Performance, custom light weight body work fabricated by Smoke’m Garage and years of expertise and experience behind his Webb Racing Developments build team, Jason hopes this car will set a new standard in the Southern African drift scene and supercharge his career to new levels.

“What sets this car apart from the rest is how new it is. Not only that but running a Supercharged V8 is also new to the drift scene here. What stands out the most is that it is a convertible, it's pretty eye catching!”

The Monstang runs a 5.0 Roush Supercharged V8 producing 583KW and 900NM torque. From front to rear everything has been modified to drift spec. A full fibreglass body by Smoke'm Garage, custom suspension made by "Speedy" Webb, changes were made to the steering arms to make them fully adjustable allowing for a lot more steering angle. To keep that all in place a Roush 3-way adjustable coil-over setup.

To keep the rear wheels spinning there have been Ford Performance side shafts fitted which sufficiently hold the 583KW’s to the ground. A full FTF fuel system installed in order to have sufficient fuel pressure for the V8.
