Hobbywind Xerun 6.5T says KV 3650 - 5200 (???)
http://www.hobbypartz.com/07e-c-sd-6-5t-3650-blue.html

Turnigy Trackstar 6,5T IS 5150KV
http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store...or_5150KV.html

Reesy Sonic 6,5T is 540 size but no KV Rating.

What about size? 540 VS 550 ?
Poles?? i saw somewhere 3...
Rotor Size ? What about all that ?
Also what pinion gears i will need?
Doesn't matter - buy the 6.5 you like and they will all be approximately the same. Just look on the setup sheets and they all have gearing for 5.5, 6.5, and 7.5 motors. Get the Turnigy and see if you like that turn motor, then buy a better one once you have decided.

Bent
Of course, however, I measured my car with both rims, back to back so that's about as close as I'm gonna get to comparing two kinds of rims on the car.

The slipper was set fine, I can key one end of the out drive and turn the spur without much force... I simply had the brakes set too strong, and possibly I had a bad input gear, either way I had the brakes set way to strong...

The reason I ask is that it says it's for high traction but I run on clay

Aluminum will deflect less and be more consistent than the composite part. Like the difference between riding a steel tubed bicycle and one made from aluminum. Plus more holes to play with...

Default Sway bars

Anybody else not running sway bars in their 2015 on med-high bite clay/dirt? Got this from the basic clay setup and it seems good...just curious.

You could technically stack saddles where the shorty sits, soooo..., yeah, it should be legal.

I think the rule will change eventually anyway, it already did once when a company ran a shorty in a car that was technically not legal. It should happen again as shorty packs are becoming the new standard in 10th scale off road.

So i have a 2014 XB4 that I am really happy with. I see its easy to drop in a center diff for the 2015 but i can not find out if this is possible with the 2014. Looks like i would have to get new drive shafts and maybe new top plates? Or maybe its not feasible.
Any info would be great.

Nothing is impossible, but the centre diff doesn't fit the '13-14 cars, unless you mod the hell out of it.
