I would like to know what track you can get a 350 up to 169 MPH on.

lol, an oval track? What fun is that?
Most tracks are technical w/ turns and probably a ~1/4 mile straightaway. Was only able to get up to 120-130 on the one I went to

I only race on the streets.



Ask any racer, any real racer. Street racing > tracks.

The FI guys on some tracks can reach speeds like what the OP said, but they are far and few between....

+1 for some tracks in a FI Z.

or other options are

Bonneville Salt Flats

El Mirage Lake bed

The silver state run possibly, but I've never run their "course" so I wouldn't know if its possible to get that speed in an N/A Z.... FI...definitely possible.

The only other option is a highway or something out in the mid west somewhere honestly. Just comes with the cop risk.

I think the OP has been watching a bit too much of 2F2F. Or maybe he is talking Grand Turismo? Someone should point out that the rated top speed of the stock Z is something a shade under 160 to begin with. Unless those numbers have changed, but I have never seen a review that said 169.
