Questions?? Brushless KV Ratings

HI Guys I am new to the whole brushless scene and was wondering if anyone has in table form the KV ratings of the current 10.5,13.5 & 17.5 motors from diff manufacturers as I have noticed vast difference's in motor performance at our club between the 13.5 I have to others that run a 13.5 !

I for example roll out at 43-45 mm and this other guy ran what he said was 39mm and he ran way quicker (1 to 1.5 sec/lap) than what I was able to run at our club with a 13.5 ( I still run faster than him with my superstock brushed motor) ! but he claims it was a higher kv rated motor compared to my speedpassion ???

is there a norm in terms of kv rating or does it vary so drastically between manufacturers ?
