    I don't think anyone in their right mind would want to blow up their engine at the tracks... the purpose of track days is to test the limit of your vehicle actually.. so not point going soft on your engine and just apply 50% throttle at the tracks... rite?

    I blew my motor in Sepang b4 due to overboosting.. straight away I drove my car on to the side grass... therefore keeping minimal oil spills at the tracks. Eventually red flag was up because of this... but please understand.. it's not inconsiderate of me.. but being considerate of what you are suppose to do in the event of such accidents.

    ftzone,
    d reason y i posted wat i posted is coz THAT EG6 owner come frm d same workshop whr i do my car......n it's d regulars der who heard him saying so..he purposely whack till dat rpm range just coz it's fun n his chipped ECU allows him 2 do so.......but since his engine is relatively stock,only w d usual IHE mods...der's really no point to go even 9000rpm..wat more 10,000rpm?
    ok,fine..i agree w ur point abt testing d limits of one's car on track..but haf u seen d video?he drove all d way frm T5 whr his car was already spewing lotsa white smoke all thru T7&8 b4 d video ended...so i dun really know how far he drove...but dat is really a "DON'T" if u ask me....

    conclusion: stop your car as soon as possible on the side (preferable a safe place) if its start smoking and wait for the marshal.

    I think generally most drivers are quite considerate and respectful. Sometimes ppl don't understand the finger out the window asking them to pass me but that's ok. I just slow down and / or go off the line.

    My personal pet peeve is those POSERs who park their AWESOME rides in the pits but never go out. What gives? Living out your FnF fantasies? Pathetic. Go and park outside Euphoria or something la.

    Have to say though, SG drivers are as a whole a lot more courteous than M'sian ones.

    aalto,
    allow me 2 add 2 ur post...well,if u ask me,most of d time,trac car drivers r an ok lot...coz i think they do remember their own humble beginnig too,just like us...enjoying open track days w street driven cars......but thn again,of course,in d course of time...some of dis track car drivers think they r now so good dat they r a few rungs above ur mere mortals dat they dun gif a *toot* abt us anymore...whnever any street car is in their way,all they 1na do is push u off d racing line n get on w his/her session......
    i mean,come on..it's an OPEN TRACK DAY 4 goodness sake...if he/she is doin dat during sum track car only practise session,OR during competition,by all means,go ahead..do wat u gotta do & try 2 win....but OPEN track day?
    i had a bad experience myself whr my car was knock frm d left hand side in T9 causing my rear left fender dented(track kakis can imagine who's @ fault her,right?)........tho i was 2 blame myself coz dis happened after d chequered flag.i saw dis particular LCLY track car gunning 4 it,so i went oso lar..i was abt 6-7 cars behind him whn i floored it....overtook him after T4(i think)...thn saw a fren approaching T9...i slowed down 2 wave @ him n dis is whn d crackpot hit my car frm rear left!n worst part is......he wasn't even sorry abt it n sed it's ok wat 2 hit hit abit in track?i was like WTF?dis type of jackarse do not deserve 2 drive if u ask me!

    Akuma,

    From my experience usually track cars drivers go "jackass" when they get overtaken by a streetcar....I mean is it our fault that your slow??.....then they try to chase you back "at all cost"....

    There are alot of respected track car drivers that do have a "pro-driver mentality"......it's just that there are a few that have a "I have a track car so I'm better than you" mentality that gives others a bad name....
