Cash & Cars Lottery Winner Takes Cash Instead Of Koenigsegg CCX
This years Cash & Cars lottery made headlines everywhere when they announced they were giving out a Koenigsegg CCX as the grand prize. It would be the only CCX in Canada as the car is not street legal here. However, the winner opted to take $1M cash instead of the CCX because the small town he is from, Norman Wells only has a single 12KM road. To top it off, there are no highways that lead to Norman Wells. It would totally suck to have a CCX you couldn’t drive wasting away in your garage!

Forum Post Counts Revised, Users In Uproar
This past week the forum post counts were revised to reflect only automotive based posts. Many users saw massive drops in their post counts and as a result, their “gear”. For anyone that is still curious, only posts on the car forums count towards your post total while posts under the lounge will not. Pretty simple change, but I guess some people take their post counts really seriously.

Nissan Solves the GT-R Launch Control and Weak Tranny Issue
There were widespread reports of GT-R transmissions blowing up when the proud new owners of Nissan’s brand new Porsche eater tried to repeat the numbers they read about in car magazines. The good news is that Nissan has fixed the problem on the 2010 Nissan GT-R, so no more worrying about losing half your gears when your tranny implodes racing that pesky 911. The bad news? You might lose to the 911 as Nissan has eliminated the launch control from next years GT-R.
