In ARMA  they are. They came in 2 different model Honda lawn tractors. But remember the engine needs to be in the same orientation as what the mower came with. If the mower came with a vertical mounted engine it needs to stay that way. The only exception is FX and super mod.

If you run with the heard you will never see the edge of the cliff
Racing lawn mowers is not cheap just cheaper.

yes in fxs and fx in uslmra they legal. In fact I run one. They were on simplictys were first who had gx390vs those but most people run horizontals. So you can run either or tho. Compared to my briggs. I make a lot mower power with this clone then that briggs ever did. My buddy run 31ci fully built and I beat him. Only down side about 390 or any clone or Honda is that if something breaks like push rod bents or something simple. You better have spare parts handy with you cause majority of people are racing with brigs.

THE ONLY SIMPLICITY A HONDA CAME ON WAS AN REGANT AND IT WAS A V TWIN 16HP.ONLY FOR ONE  MAYBE TWO YEARS. NEVER A GX 390.
