That's a pretty subjective thing. I would think that if you fit the new engine and get the driveline together, re-engineer the steering (as you mentioned in the thread),replace the tires, fix the brakes, wiring, paint, etc- IE a FULL rebuild, then sure!
i ment if i do the steering and get the driveline moving, just to get me moving, can i do a real build for the event, aka get my tractor ready to build.
Basically can i start the comp w/ a custom steering setup and engine? Then go into a full build.. I just want it to drive atm lol

ope engines but there shouldnt be a limit on how much hp you can have, i could see if we were meeting up and going head to head but the fact that its going to be based on uniqueness, and build quality i think it shouldnt matter how much hp it is

The limit would apply to stock horsepower rating. You can modify and make as much hp as you want.

Precisely. I mentioned that to Jay on a previous post.

Do what you gotta do, and we'll see when the time comes. You can make your plea then.

I like the popular vote idea. Also im thinkin you should be able to vote for more then one entry but no one entry more then once. If I see two builds that are equally impressive in there own way I'd want to vote for both seein how each would deserve a vote.

It's sounding good. Folks can follow the build threads and I assume once a build is done the builder can post a bunch of picks showing off his/her handy-work and maybe even a short video clip of the machine performing. I assume no voting will be allowed till after the end date and that voting will open for a defined period of time.. week, 2 weeks, whatever...

You are correct in your assumptions.
