I just look at stuff and if they come back complement them or something and that might REALLY turn up thier ego and might even spill out thier setup and secret tuning tips

I really don't care as long as they don't end up picking it up and bending stuff and all... that is over the line (way over). But up until that point, I really don't care as long as I'm watching. Behind my back, just walk past please, out of courtesy.

The top guys really have their own setups, and when some of the other guys are having problems, they are glad to share it, because most of us prefer to see close racing. Even if one of the usually faster guys are having a bad day, he can usually find a couple people with opinions of how to improve b4 the day is done.

There are some guys that are too much into winning that you know they aren't going to release their most of their setup secrets, but anything beside those couple 1/10 to 2/10 of a second time savers are free to be told to anyone who cares to listen.

Wild Cherry, that was............................................... ...

If someone's touching your stuff, just talk about whatever it is. "Pretty cool, huh?" Beware of the shifty-eyed bystander with the large overcoat!

I guess I need to clarify what I mean.

When a guy has his junk hanging out on the table and it looks like you might be able to , you know, learn something by getting next to it. Is that cool?

And if it looks like something that you might, I don't know, envy or something, can you just pick his rig up (gently of course) and check it out.

How long is too long to hold on to it?

Cut it out when you get the annoyed vibe... Seriously, that is a good gauge. Just hold it for a short time, pick it up, put it down. If you are really looking at something, like the smoothness of the drive train for touring cars, then just long enough for you to experience it. I'd say 5 seconds is fine with me.
