I'm already plotting... and I have been for a few weeks now. Next year, I must remember to update my threads with pictures before the competition ends... Rolling Eyes Next year I am only going to have one build off tractor, which I will focus all my energy/time/money into so I don't end up with 3 half-baked builds. Laughing Watch out, next year I'm planning on an old gt frame, 20hp twin, bumpers, winch, and the biggest tires I can find, and front suspension. Twisted Evil yeah we'll see how that goes.

Oh I've already started planning things out. My base next year will be a 1977 Cub Cadet 1000 that will receive a fully built K341 block. My lips are sealed otherwise.

The administrative staff have not yet discussed next year's start date. To be fair, only tonight has our 2nd and 3rd place winners bee determined for this year's event.


As always, a competition will be held if there's enough intrest. It's also reasonable to assume a similar timetable.

Even if you dont think you will finish, enter! And invite people to join and participate as well! 8 months is a lot of build time and you would be surprised on what you could get done. Remember, literally nothing to lose, and with some serious dedication you could even stand to gain something!

You guys get a date decided on and I will get a video up on Redneckcomputergeek to get people on the forum. Maybe if i make it clear that I'm in it this year you can draw in a bigger crowd.

I really wanted to enter this year but didn't have the gear. So I spent this year watching you guys, getting the gear and space and getting super inspired and pumped! I will be entering this year with my daughter. She wants to build a pink off road racer. And as of today I now have just the little green Bolens to do it with. I cant wait!

I will be in for sure. I have most of a donated LT2000 stripped and ready to start. After competing and finishing the DIYgokarts.com build off last summer I am comfortable enough in my fab skills now that I am confident I can complete a decent enough tractor build. I am thinking a predator engine with a torque converter to a solid axle turning some atv tires front and rear. Still debating on whether or not to run a locked or pivoting front axle.

GTR team worked really hard this year and uh... I think we did pretty good getting this 2nd place finish. Just want to thank my sponsors, Briggs and Stratton, Carlisle tires, Champion spark plugs, Rustoleum, Tygon, Sunoco, atltf.com. This year you know, we didn't get 100% done like we wanted to but uh...we're getting a solid plan in place for the 2016 season and uh...we're gonna see how the competition goes and hopefully take the number one spot next year.

Dont forget Keystone Motorsports for inspecting pre-build to ensure it was to regulation.

I think I'll sit this one out. I got too much stuff going on. Still need to finish my tank and that will take a couple months atleast. Maybe 2017 for me.
