Actually I was thinking I could build a second simplicity if I ever found another one to get parts from. Who knows though.

Yeah that would definitely be cool to see!

Lol, yeah I know I wanted to do that, just didn't have time to mess with it for this year. Had to finish the trailer and the other tractor. After haspin some time I will add a back up light. I want to make a nice bracket for it so it's good and tucked in, trying to decide on a place for it under the seat.

Good idea with the back up light. Mutt needs one. Maybe a dash light too? Could set it up like an old tractor to where one of those little GM bulbs goes in and there's a little cover that goes on over with a slit in it to shine the light just over the dash.

Haspin Pics! Here's some that I took out there. I got a ton of video too which will be loaded in the next couple of weeks as I get time to edit. The simplicity didn't have any major issues and I was pretty hard on it. The new alternator belt tensioner worked way better than the old spring tensioner. No more jumping around and the belt stayed good this time. I hit some stream beds and rocks pretty hard and rammed my way through some mud holes. Got up to the running boards in the stream this time and had it on it's side dragging along some huge ruts here and there. I tipped it over at speed on the last day bending the steering wheel pretty good and putting a slight bend in the hood. Once again the front suspension held up no problem and I was a lot harder on it than 2016 Haspin. Still using the same clutch belt that I started with originally. Brakes worked well and the new jackshaft brake worked great for shifting. It took a bit of getting used to but it helped a lot. Huge improvement. I came up with a list of future mods that might be good which I'll get into later. For now here's some pics.

@mr.modified I was hoping to use a few haspin pix for the header the next few months.  OK to use one or more of yours?

Sure use any ones you want. I wish I took more pics in the stream beds. I'll get some screen shots from my videos too.

Nice shots man!  You and the trailer get full air in that one shot?

That must have been a rough landing bounce

Actually log jump landings are not as bad with the super simplicity as you would think from looking at the pics. The front suspension takes up much of the front end blow and the rear doesn't actually get off the ground that far. If I ever get around to editing more video I'll put those scenes in slow motion as well. It's best if you rise up off the seat as much as possible before the back wheels hit.

Also it looks like I was going 50 mph and launching over the log in that top pic, but really that's just on the way back down after hopping over. The slow-mo is a lot neater than the normal video.
