I just ran a brand new set of Pilot Sport Cups all last weekend at a track near Vegas. Put them through about 10 heat cycles of about 20-30 minutes per cycle. They last very well, and look like they have another 10 cycles to go before they are shot. Grip is very good after they are warmed up....seemed like they might have started to fade a bit when the outside temp reached about 93 degrees. I was careful to run them at 32psi hot, and about 24-26 psi cold. Good tire for track work, and probably worth the extra $$$$$ because of the longevity.
PS, I was racing a Shelby Cobra with 570 hp, and 335/17 Hoosiers on the rear.....I took him in the corners every time.
