first trackday you wont scrape anything
Not necessarily true.
On my first track day, I was feeling pretty good. Hanging off A LOT, draggin knees, and such. One of the CR's told me to follow him. He went through the slowest turn of the track a bit faster than I had been taking it, and low and behold my brake pedal touched down. I ground it down and bent it back just from the lean angle. I thought I was going to low side, and stood it up into the grass. I probably could have gotten my upper body off a bit more, and I worked on that a lot after that, but I was hanging off a lot, and still did this. So IMO, yes take them off, but don't necessarily think that just because it is your first track day you won't drag anything. You may end up doing just that as your form is not going to be ideal until you work it out some. Just take it slow, work on your lines and your body position.
