It should be a tad lower. Their price is always a bit higher.

My thoughts are what kv to order seems as most of t pro4hd users use the 4300kv. So when I order the zombie should I go with a 4000kv or there 4850kv. I run on large outdoor tracks. Any suggestions

The HD is a 550 can motor, these are 545 can's like the hobbywing motor. For a large track go with the higher kv 4850.

Picked up my Zombie 4850 last Saturday...Also have a Revtech 4800...I thought the Revtech 4800 was fast, but the Zombie will make you say "wow!" either in a good or bad way...Increased droop, decreased droop makes no difference, with the Zombie 4850 on board things are going to squat when you pull the trigger...This motor is Nasty Fast and you better be two things if you buy it for your Short Course (more truck, less tire) Truck...1-A very good driver...2-Very good with set ups...Anything less, and you're asking for nothing but a lot of breaks, and a bad time at the track...8th scale E buggies and Truggies (open wheel/more tire) rigs will probably get along good with the Zombie 4850 (IMO). At many tracks I think "Usasble" power will come into question...The motor may be overkill in the opinions of many....In my opinion it's overkill on anything smaller than a large 8th scale track, and I do mean large.

Just ordered my 4000 for my new losi scte 2.0. I run at a large indoor clay track so I hope I picked a good kv. I'm excited for this beast to show up!

Just got it in the mail...this thing is huge! The freaking rotor is like an inch in diameter. It's going to be killer.
On a side note, I'm going to be using a hobbywing sct pro to control this rocket. Do you guys foresee any issues?

I'd be curious to know the exact diameter of the rotor of this motor. The HW SCT motor and Tekin HD has 18.5mm rotors. Do you think the Zombie's is bigger?

It will be interesting to compare those, here's a post from RC*Phreak with pics and measurements.
http://www.rctech.net/forum/11623300-post18.html
19.07 & 27.39 for the HW rotor. I would not be shocked if HW made that motor for Trinity and just put adjustable timing on it for a premium price

Edit... a little late haha!
So smaller diameter and longer than the HW 3656
