I'm runnning BT003 right now and the tread is kinda low and my first track day is this weekedn its a two day. I may run out of tread but im kinda broke so was gonna buy some new bt-016 for $212 and take them with me. Do you think this may cause a crash cuz i have never used the bt016 or will this fine to take just in case???

No, but you can get the 003's for 40 bucks more than that.

since this will be your first track day, i think the BT016 should work fine for you. since you'll be spending most of your time learning the line and won't be carrying a lot of speed initially.

Either would be fine but they are different. I had BT016s and switched to the BT003 R/S and I can tell you there is a huge difference in carcas design. The BT003 R/S is taller in the middle and has a much more aggresive design, the motorcycle really wants to fal in much faster. This is also one reason why I picked them up but it is also taking a little bit to get used to the different design.
Bottom line is the BT016 is a street tire and the BT003 R/S is a street/track tire and both are designed that way.
