Travel Trac Rollers w/ Saris/Sportcrafter resistance unit?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Travel Trac Rollers w/ Saris/Sportcrafter resistance unit?

I was wanting to buy the Performance Travel Trac Rollers but I don't think the resistance would be very high on them. I have a compact crankset and if you look at Kreitler 3" rollers at 35mph it is only about 340W. The Travel Track rollers are 3.35" (85mm) so I figured they would even be easier. I have read that some people have fit the Saris/Sportcrafter resistance unit will work on the Nashbar Reduced Radius rollers, but since they do not fold I wanted to get the Performance Rollers. The problem is that from the pictures it looks like the Sportcrafter rollers and the Travel Trac rollers would have to have the exact same width (outside metal frame to outside metal frame) because it doesn't look like there is any adjustment to the width of the Sportcrafter/Saris resistance unit. I was wondering if anyone that had this trainer could tell me the width from the outside of the frame on one side to the outside of the frame on the other? Or if the Sportcrafter resistance unit has adjustable width. Thanks.
