Then I can put bigger ( taller tires on it which will bring the chasis higher.
After looking I dont think spacers will do it, it will have to be longer drive axles

Need to accommodate larger rims and tires.
I'm thinking a longer axle may work.
Whats the longest axle that will fit the stock cvd or complete cvd changeout if I have to.
There is so little clearance.
Tires have to clear the chassis and muffler when turning for a little dirt trackin
or just running at the ballfield.
seeking positive input to a solution !
I think there is a market for this conversion since there are so many NTC3's out there.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
hey ALFACENTORI I think you need to start your own thread as this one isn't gunna help you much poeple comming on here are looking for info on the PNB race meeting

RV's are welcomed with open arms. We have plenty of parking for everyone and we will be opening up another section of the property so everyone will be comfy. Bring any size and we will find a spot for you. Just remember there are no hookups so bring a generator. The facility is doing a renovation on the rv hookups and they will not be ready.


Thanks Dave....that kicks ass!!


I'll have the 31' Crossroads behind me.

Hey everyone,

Just spent the better part of the day at the Arena building drivers stand, pit lane, pit wall, staging area and other features.

great news, the track blew out last year, which some liked but most didn't. We found that great ga clay rests about 6 inches deep. Dave assured us that we will dig down the entire track and be racing on Ga clay!!!

Can you say BLUE GROOVE!! Can't wait.

A big thanks to Jammie, Logan, Josh, Travis, Shannon and Nick for a
hard days work today at the PNB. We assembled the drivers stand,
Staging area and pit lane. Work also began on the "great wall" and it
should be up in the next couple of days.

Again, Thanks a ton fellas. Almost time to go racing!!!!

I would love for the track to be grooved. It is going to be tough with all the cars/trucks running with no water. From what I understand, there will be very little track maintenance and very little water.

I completely understand why the crew is doing this, and I am not complaing. If they get a good pack the track should hold up better than last year. The track area is HUGE, so I understand they can only do so much as far as dirt goes $$$$$$.

Signed up and ready to GO!!

We will be watering and doing maintenance on friday all day and night at certain intervals. The track should be in great shape come saturday for qualifying. Saturday is the only day we will not touch the track. track prep starts back up on sunday before and during the mains.

It will be a great surface, Georgia red clay!!!!
