Months in the making by Marcus Mackey (a/k/a SPONGEZILLA), what started out as a way to get a detailed replication of the ever popular Dirt Defender wheel plate/covers out for the Dirt Motorsport ’15 Late Models took on a mind of it’s own. A complete revamp of the DM ’15 Late Model template ensued, porting and updating of some older wheel plate textures and recreation of numerous more. Everything down to beadlock bolts, lug nuts, foam wheel plugs, front and rear hubs and hub covers and wheel texture details was recreated from the ground up (less than 1% is from the original template) for added detail.
Special thanks to Bruce Carroll, Adam Zuidema, Doug Jett Jr., Tim Miller, Cris Brumberg, Forrest Lane, Brent Crowley, J. Shawn Brassfield, Tim Bennett, Ken Short, Jerry Hockett, Brian Bowling and the Slingindirt.com community for their help, contributions, time, testing and inspiration in making this happen. I couldn’t do it without my crack beta team and their assistance, testing and input. Thanks again to Doug, Tim, Cris and Forrest!
