after hitting a red barrier on BL1, the car goes flying (which i think is legit, seeing how i hit it)... eventually i land upside down on one of the guardrails, and then it launches me across the track. i guess it didn't like me landing there.
I don't think the CFL has any impact on us getting an NHL team. The Ti-Cats play their games at Ivor Wynne Stadium (for the time being, who knows if they'll actually build the new stadium for the Commonwealth Games)
you could probably shake it out, or crack it open and fish out the loose piece... but unless it gets into the gears, i can't see that causing a problem unless it's made of metal.
as for the rest of it, it's hard to say... you could spend the time changing the pots, but who knows if that's where the faults lie... maybe try cleaning out the wheel's internals first, perhaps. hopefully you haven't damaged anything that would require crazy amounts of soldering.
