Brake Rotor and Axle Nut [Download]

I could not find any stock looking generic brake rotors that I liked, so I decided to make my own. None of them had a modeled backside, and many were just flat cylinders. You may have seen the axle nut used in other cars I have made; I think I made it for the BN Sports FD3S RX7, but I'm not certain. I made it a year or two ago but I fixed some normals errors with it. The axle nut is visible when wheels do not have a center cap. This is often the case with racing wheels such as Work's Meister series. I am providing it for download so your cars and wheels can look more complete. If you use it, please credit me.

I modeled the inside and backside of the rotor

Stack Cluster (Integrated Race Dash Display) - v2

The Stack "Integrated Race Dash Display", or "Stack Cluster" as many know it, is a famous gauge setup that has been used by Koenigsegg, Lotus, and even Abflug in their 90's Porsche demo car. I first modeled the Stack Cluster about 2.5 years ago. This time around I have made numerous improvements. You can view the original post here.

Chevy Magnum 500 SS Wheel

I modeled this wheel in an RC 2.2" size originally, but then I decided to finish it off as accurately as possible, and I decided to submit for an AP Art portfolio. I modeled it using Autodesk Inventor and then I rendered it using Mental Ray in Inventor.
