read a lot about options to adjust stance distance on North boards. Unfortunately they don't have any recommendations for guys like me weighing in at 240 pounds (110 kilos).
Mostly I ride a Select 135 or a x ride 133 in choppy conditions and I have both boards adjusted to 65 centimeters. Does anyone think its too far? Does it flatten out the rocker/scoop too much?
just cant get good info on the Track system to optimize for my weight,

A basic stance would be shoulder width. You could also jump to the ground from a few feet up or so, and see how your feet land. I wouldn't worry too much about weight in relation to your stance.
