Default Are brake discs universal?

Are center diff outdrives sized similiar? Reason I ask is that my car doesn't come with fiber brake discs, but jammin, AE, HB and losi do and I'd like to try them out. Thanks!

The Losi hole is smaller than many others so you almost need vehicle specific one although i think Mugen fits my CEN
