    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.

    The best I can think of is replicating the decals from scratch using the texture as reference.

    That's a good idea. You should do that. Let's see how that turns out.

    That isn't a very nice statement.

    Sorry about that. Didn't mean for it to come out that way.
