the short straight is a 55mm section, probably a short terminal track
like the one's used in those small suitcase boxes. But anyway, if you
take a circle of 8510 (145mm radii) sections and include a 55mm straight
(8503) before the last quarter turn then you can go on with 8520 (195mm
radii) for the outer circle. The middle of both circles will be 5mm of
center, but since those two helixes are not on the same base, it don't
show much. But you can see it on your picture. The center of the inner
circle is a little to the left of the center of the outer circle.
For the same result in a combination of 8520 (195mm radii) for the inner
circle and 8530 (220mm radii) for the outer circle you just have to
exchange the 8503 straigth (55mm) with a 8504 straight (25mm), In this
case the two circle lines will be apart only 25mm, but they will have
the same center.
I don't know about MTL and Rokuhan tracks if they have those short
sections, but then you just have to customize a longer straight section.
On another thought with flextrack you can do anything you want too... ;-)
