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.

Just getting a car together after quite a couple year break now.

I would like to be able to run 235 and 200mm wide, if I get the IRS 235mm axle kit can I just buy the 200mm diff side hub and it will fit on the 235mm axle?

No,

The offset is different and you need a lot of spacers to get the 200mm hub working.
It will also stick out of the side of the car.
Get a cheap ass 10R5 rear axle so you can do both.

No, as previously stated. Also as a note the old 200mm to 235mm conversion hubs from CRC are no good!!! Just if you were considering it, they add additional weight, and not to mention a crazy imbalance. Best bet is to have dedicated cars! That is how we do it in Europe, we run EGT (200mm) & Pro10 (235mm) with dedicated cars.

It is a bit tragic how Pro10/235 is considered a pan car class. NO!.. it is supposed to be the fastest RC car class.. So naturally it would be a Pan car assuming you have a low weight limit or no weight limit at all. Pan cars are the fastest layout once grip is high enough.

the pro 10 class at the birds was 17.5 blinky 2s. They were as fast as 1/12 mod. Plenty fast for carpet.

OMG Dale, the first picture we have seen before was such a deception... Once properly cut, it is very very nice. Thank you.

They were a bit slower, weren't they? I distinctly remember 1/12 mod being the fastest class, but Pro10 was definitely right there behind them.

I'm not saying 17.5T is slow, or anything like that, but usually, the problem is the car having too much power for typical drivers to handle, I tried 17.5T, 13.5T, and 10.5T, on a very tight track (which would make it even more difficult to handle), and as an "average at best" driver (I was in the very bottom heat of the 13.5T stock 1/12 at the last national race I've attended here in the UK!), I found the 10.5T to be too much, but I could handle the 13.5T just fine. 17.5T really isn't much slower, though, especially on a tight track!
