With a win at the Canadian Sport Compact Series under his belt, James Houghton turned up at Gridlife Midwest with high expectations.

His hopes were nearly dashed when the K-Tuned Acura suffered from gearbox problems on Friday. Saturday’s wet weather turned out to be a blessing in disguise as James was able to run the car on low boost, compensating for the lack of 4th gear.

Despite missing a gear and running on low boost, James proved victorious on Saturday winning the Bracket Battle outright!

“Considered I managed to win without a 4th gear is a great testament to how the car is built and the great components we use. I cannot thank everyone enough for all the hard work! This win is dedicated to my team and all our great sponsors, we cannot do this without you!

James’ Acura uses Haltech’s Elite 2500 ECU for all its engine management duties.
