That's actually a good idea and I've kinda thought of that too, but I think if I built one for the TTC or haspin, it would be better to not build the frame and front end the same way. Just because the original is a tad too high up. And then you'd kinda have a completely different machine. So I don't know. For now I guess I'll just keep it on hand till I need it. It's in good shape tho. And it is nice that all the hub cabs are there. Not like I'll use them but it's cool.

Right now I'm trying to clean up so I can eventually get back to the adventure edition. It needs some changes and then re-assembly after all the temporary mods from the 2020 TTC. Honestly I don't know about a simplicity entry for the 2021 TTC. The Broadmoor R/S project is in question at this point and I've been busy.

What made you decide to use the Sears back half over the simplicity? I’ve always wondered that

I used the back part of the sears frame just because I wanted to use a 633 trans and it fit the bolts easy. The stock simplicity transaxles are heavy enough but the shifters work kinda weird and there's no high/low range. Also the one that came in that tractor I believe had pins to hold the wheels instead of key ways. So I was limited to 10" tires. The 633 and sears rear wheels were a better option.

Gotcha, makes sense. Probably easier to find replacement transaxles too

I may show up with something, I just don't exactly know what. The Broadmoor RS I think would have been fairly competitive in the 2019 TTC. But the 2020 course was considerably rougher than the first year and I think that my super low setup that I had in mind might be a bit too low. I thought of making some sort of stripped down machine that's closer to a conventional tractor layout and putting some simplicity "body panels" on but I don't really know how things are gonna go. I imagine I would still show up even if I don't run a tractor. I even thought about somehow using the mostly stock Broadmoor 728 I recently picked up. But the stock simplicity's are kind of an odd setup and I don't think it would fair too well. Back when I started out with a stock one it wasn't too great of an off road machine really.
