James Houghton managed a 2:11.811 for the second fastest time of the day. We just featured this car along with having James on the Slip Angle Podcast. Needless to say, making an 800hp Garrett GTX3582R Gen2 powered FWD track car is difficult. James and Cole had a drag race down the front straight at the end of the event and it looked like James pulled a little bit on Cole based on the video floating online.
James visited the Rally Ready Ranch run by Texas Dave after Super Lap. I was a bit lost trying to figure out how to get to the garages at COTA so Dave came out and grabbed me from the parking lot. It sounded like James had as good of a time in the UTVs as I did.
This was probably one of most mild things we did in the UTV during my bachelor party at Rally Ready. Bombing through the woods in the UTVs was an unreal experience. Go to Austin, eat BBQ, go to Rally Ready. I do recommend eating the BBQ after driving at Rally Ready as the proper order of operations.
Austin local Jenson Little knocked out the third fastest time of 2:16.311 in what has to be the mildest looking Unlimited class car ever. I mean, I see much more crazy body work on street cars. I can’t even tell if those are the stock fender flares or not. The aero is only a simple splitter, canards, and a rear wing. That’s it from what I could see.
The engine bay is pretty clean. My dad asked what the purpose was for the sock on the brake fluid reservoir along with what the suspension remote reservoirs were. Oh, he also asked what the BOV was. There’s a black tube going across the engine bay in front of the engine which I’m sure stiffen things up.
