Crank length and the moment you hit the ground in a velodrome

I normaly use 165 cranks on a wooden velodrome track.
The banks there have 43 or 47 degress-
Now the most time i am inside on the 47 track.
For me is the question, if i stay straight not one degree inside to the center, how much space is there till i knock the ground.

Not only the crank length are decide about... the BB drop from my frame and the pedal axle is the nex point.

I try to find data in geometry from several frames for track cycling

My own frame has only 45 DROP
Cinelli has 50
PlanetX Track Pro has 58
Caad Track 10 has 57
Look is about 50

So i think if you uses tracks with higher banks 45 plus...
You have to look for the BB drop also ...

For Sprinters not above 50 and crank length 167,5

A 57 frame with 170mm cranks could you knock out from the ground. What you thing about?
