Putnam Raceway
Time: 1:18.77
MODS
Tires: 305/30R19 XL 101y Cup2's (non R compound) Square
Alignment: Track spec. Camber -2.5 front -2.0 rear
Brakes: Hawk DTC70/60
Engine: Cold air intake, Cat Delete, E50 fuel, DSX lid

This is a new to me track, and my driving line could greatly be improved but I'm told anything under 1:20 at this track is damn fast for a car on street tires. Most all the other cars in my group were on slicks. Unfortunately, oil temps were getting up to 300, and coolant up to 240. Looks like an Oil cooler may be in my future...

Im overall pretty happy with the performance of the cup2's. I will be switching to Goodyear 3R to see how they compare (they are much cheaper). I also have a set of Toyo R888R that I tried out at this event and was not impressed. They are 2 seconds a lap slower overall.
