After acquiring a Dolphin emulator and an ISO for NASCAR 2005, I did a texture dump of the Whelen (read: Featherlite) Modified cars in the game so I could work on a pack for you guys. There's just one problem: the texture used is... a bit different than the Whelen template provided by Ground Pounder Designs.

Figure 2: My quickly abandoned attempt at porting it to the "Chassis Dynamics" template. Note the obvious errors.

I will provide the textures from NASCAR 2005 here for anyone who wants to help take this project on.

Since Whelen in the EA games don't have yellow flags, they don't have pit stalls. I tried dumping a generic EA Sports pit texture, but all attempts at that have failed. Since the texture dumps also dumped the numbers, I will paint the pit crews for all the cars.

Good luck and have fun!

Great mod! It brings back memories from NASCAR 2005 Chase for the Cup and it would be great to do this. Maybe I can help. How do we make it look as great as the game?

I'm hoping they can make the NASCAR 2005 Featherlite cars for the Whelen mod so people can enjoy them for themselves. I've always wanted those cars made for NR2003 and can use you guys help. So can the person posting this forum. I'm trying to do this for your website.

Sorry for not being online/active in a while, let me see if I can straighten things out.

What exactly are you wanting people to do here.?
I've given the extracted textures from NASCAR 2005's Whelen Modified cars to all y'all to use as a base to try and recreate them on the Whelen mod for NR2003. Not a specific request for one individual to do it, it's just here for anyone to pick up if they want to.

Is anybody else interested in doing this mod?
Not a new mod, would be a carset for an already created mod.

They're here! It's an early Halloween treat for you guys. Credit LiutenantHardhat for coming up with the idea for this project, EA Sports for their textures, Ground Pounder Designs for their amazing Whelen templates, and DaleTona for helping me out with the first car. It would not've been possible without him. You guys also have my permission and if it's okay with LiutenantHardhat to post them on other websites such as Mediafire (specifically) so that the carset doesn't get lost. That's if you guys are interested. Note, also the drivers names are the same from NASCAR 2005: Chase for the Cup and they are not rated. Since there were also no crews in the game, there are none here, either. Sorry if this post is a little long. Hope you guys like and enjoy and the carset as I did my best with them. Have fun!

OH MY GOD YES

Now THIS is one fine piece of work, my friend. Amazingly done! Definitely going to be running these for a LONG time.

I give my 110% approval to have these cars hosted on other sites (don't forget to add it to this site's downloads section as well!). One thing: I know that the Whelen/Featherlite modifieds don't have pit crews in NASCAR 2005, but sometimes you're really glad that NR2003 has them. If it's okay with you, I'd like to churn out some (really basic) pit crews for the cars for purely aesthetic reasons (and to make finding my pit box easier lol).
