You can run without it but you have to do warm up laps to bring it to it's operating temp for the rubber to stick. Without warmer, the tire stickiness, or longevity decreases.

And one set of tires cost what warmers do. Buy warmers.

You can also get more fast laps out of your trackdays then just warm up laps to get your tires hot.

Plus you look cooler in the paddock.
