    What about the new plumbed in fire extinguisher system you have now is it to cool the tyres when you let all 200 bhp go. tawny

    Technically it was the factory that produced their wheels that went bust rather than Compomotive themselves. They're still trading and according to their website are reintroducing their wheels with new manufacturing partners
