The Mod Squad - Top mods and tracks

Often referred to (and promoted in their banner) as "The Home of NASCAR Heat", The Mod Squad has created some of the top mods and has a large searchable support forum archive. TMS is also home to most of the Heat Community's top mod and track developers.

FFS Racing has operated as a development community, online racing league, online racing team and most recently as the NASCAR Heat Superstore - a NASCAR Heat mod, track and tool archive. Despite it's name, NASCAR Heat is a 16 year old PC racing sim that has a strong, active, modding community. NASCAR Heat & Heat Core currently has hundreds of different mods (or car types) and over one thousand tracks. From oval stock car racing to quarter mile dirt modifieds and sport car prototypes at LeMans we have what you are looking for! Don't forget about the speed boats, monster trucks and stunt tracks!

Cart Heat (CartHeat)

Old CartHeat Mod by Thomas Heineman from 2001

This release is dedicated to all you CART fans out there. Those that have been patiently waiting for this mod to arrive. I wish I could have finished it properly, but instead of not releasing it at all, i decided to release it as is.

All modifications this mod contains are made by Thomas Heineman - except for the physics. They are made by Steve Blankenship, who also made some setups for them.
Also the "led" graphics is made by John Bodin who also did some physics together with SB.

Legend Car Heat (LCH)

Old LCH Mod by Rapid Roy from 2002

Craftsman Truck Series (CTS)

Old CTS Mod by High Compression from 2001

High Compression is proud to present the CTS patch for NASCAR Heat. We hope you enjoy playing with them as much as we do (If Sean's AI wasn't so much fun to race, We'd have finished them a long time ago!) Inside you'll find 3 highly detailed models, Dodge, Ford and Chevy. Complete with new cockpits, damage model and accurate physics. 44 schemes from the 2000 Craftsman Truck Series season are also included. There are new AI, Truck setups, and a few surprises.
