Default Stock Class Motors. What's Legal?

Is a 13.5 brushless the limit for ROAR Stock class? I see some motors rated in terms of 4600kv or 5700kv instead of turns. Which of these, if any, equate to a 13.5(if I'm correct about the 13.5)? I'm getting into electric stadium trucks and have only run nitro before so I don't know much about this. Thanks for any input

ROAR stock is 17.5 BL 27t brushed
Not sure exactly which kv rated one that is; probably depends on the motor?

Uncensored motors are not roar legal. Those are the motors that are usually rated in KV's instead of turns. Mamba max or sidewinder brushless are not roar legal.

I believe Fazznick is correct. Seeing that the topic of this thread is for stock motors, the uncensored motors still are not legal for stock. They were only recently legalized for Mod.

For a list of ROAR approved motors for stock class go to their webpage.They have a full list of BL and brushed stockers.
also The 13.5 is a superstock motor, and for 2009 the 10.5 is considered mod, not a superstock/19t equivalent.
