Some friends and I are putting together some spec tire - 2S - blinky - 13.5 cars to run as a second class and put some rubber in the track, any suggestions on where to start for tire height (60mm?) and rollout? Track is small (~80x~40) with black carpet.

I would start with the tires at 53-54mm, rollout @40-45mm for 13.5. I would suggest 17.5 for that size of a track instead of 13.5. Rollout for 17.5 50mm

For club racing, I've gone with up to 55mm in tire diameter, it's not as sharp, but it's all right. This was with an XRay X10, the main problem was getting the ride height low enough with the bigger tires, really...

I run 13.5T blinky 2S at a tiny track (52x33), it's all right, but if you're not sure, starting with a 17.5T isn't a bad idea...

55mm tire is a little too high for CRC Black Carpet, you will traction roll. Ride height:4-5mm.
I don't have a problem with ride height with my SM Roadkill. I have been able to maintain 4-5mm ride height all the down to the rim.
