Many have noticed that NFSCars had been down for over 3 days. The reason for this was a change on the server, the site is moved to a different directory and an new admin system for managing sites has been implemented.
Unfortunately we had to wait until TechSupport came back from their weekend and updated the DNS settings for site.nfscars.com before the site was accessable again…
There are some errors here and there, I know of it, but I wont be able to fix it for at least another 12 hours as I have to go to work.
If you see an error, let me know by posting it here or in the NFSCars Bugreports & Suggestions forum on the messageboard.
I know of the error with the uploadscripts though.
Today NFSCars passed the huge amount of 2000 cars!!! This is one of the biggest milestones NFSCars has ever reached, and were very happy with it!
Id like to thank all the car creators for supplying NFSCars with lots of cars - especially over the last few months cars are added on a daily basis! Thank you car creators!
Offcourse I would also like to thank everyone else who made this possible, namely the site admins (current ones as well as previous ones), my current host (thanks Mike & Justin!), GameSpy/SportPlanet (for hosting me for almost 2 years!) and offcourse all of you visitors!!! Without the huge amounts of visitors coming to NFSCars each day (5000 unique visitors a day, over 80.000 pageviews a day!), this site would have died a long time ago!
Offcourse 2000 is not the limit - well keep working on the site as long as we can and as long as people keep visiting and cars are being uploaded! Keep those cars coming!

Finally NFSCheats is back. After moving first the subsites, forum and later NFSCharts to RacerPlanet they now finally moved NFSCheats itself.
After months of work, NFSCheats has been redesigned and is now running smooth on the RacerPlanet Network. The forums have been restructured as well, so check them out and get posting.
NFSCheats is your source for Need For Speed news and Racer content coming soon.
Go see the great new design at www.nfscheats.com!
Wammy and venom_fnf_designs opened a new site

You can also upload your cars there.. I uploaded some allready.And there is one of my cars there that you wont find anywhere else (not even on my site).
They are brand new so give them a visit and upload some cars!!!!
Their URl is
SITE ADMIN AT NFSCARS.COM
We changed http://nfscars.bmw-alberta.com to http://site.nfscars.com as URL for NFSCars, as this looks much nicer. The reason why we are not using www.nfscars.com is that this URL is hosted elsewhere and will stay there. You are adviced to use www.nfscars.com as it will always get on NFSCars.com or will dispay an nice errorpage with links to other NFS sites when the site is down.
Just so you know :D
A lot of people probably noticed that NFSCars has been down since Tuesday night. The reason was that RedHat Linux (the operating system on the server) practically died… Therefor, the serveradmins decided to install FreeBSD (a different, more capable operating system in this situation). The entire site had to be backed up for that, which took time. After that, FreeBSD had to be installed and configured, which also took time. When that was ready, NFSCars had to be re-uploaded again, which took over a day…
It was back up earlier today, but not everything worked well, but now everything seems to be ok and the site is running quite well.
This weekend will be the first heavy test for FreeBSD for us, so lets see if it manages to stay in one piece ;)
Sorry about any inconvenience we might have caused you!
Although everybody is waiting for Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit to be released, EA decided to delay the game to September 2002!!! This is very bad news, it means we have to wait quite a few more months before we can take a look at game on the PS2. The reason for the delay unknown.
More bad news: there was a strong rumor lately that NFS:HP2 was also going to be released on PC, XBox and GameCube. Unfortunately, the rumor started at the Norwegian NFS website, which made an error about this. EA still denies that there will be a PC version, let alone an XBOx or GameCube version.
Both newsitems were reported at NFSWorld.org.
I have reopened my team and renamed it to VENOMS.. Its an online racing team.
Each weekend we race each other on a certain track and see whos the best driver ;)
