    Sorry mate
     The website on the Mito is for an Italian tyre manufacture and the 500 is the assetto corse 500 limited production race car for a one make race series.

    Looks like this is a little different as it hasn't got the small mirrors which seem to be fitted to the race cars.

    I can see what you are saying Reteb, but that is definately an Assetto Corse.

    here like to the page with the info on the car: http://www.marangonipress.com/en-US/car-tyres-25en.html?idblock=799

    with the quote from the engine mods:
    "The extensively tuned engine now delivers 220 HP, a good 65 HP more than the original version, with powerful delivery even at low revs. The power kit designed by Mariani also includes a new bearing-mounted rotary turbine, downpipe complete with metal catalyst, rear stainless"

    I know I'm probably alone here, but I think the 500 looks completely kitsch especially those race numbers. Just like some leftover stickers from an Airfix kit. The wing wouldn't even make it to Max Power. Halfords Italia?

    Maragoni have been successful in hitting the Mito with even more ugly sticks.

    You'd be surprised at how effective small wings like that are at speed in a small front-wheel drive car. You'd rather have one than not when you're racing. I get tetchy when the team can 't be bothered to refit the diffuser on my car in between tests..... As for the mirrors, I would be surprised if the production mirrors are left on for the Trofeo Cup. You go through enough of them so its often cheaper to use the OEM ones instead of some excessively exensive Sparco efforts.
