In general, all the AZL locomotives with 4 digit model numbers run with 10% variation in speed curves, which seems to be typical in all scales. I've had no problems running AZL in DC consists, although I don't have an SD45. If 10% variation bothers you, you can always go to DCC and speed match.

I have a 3 unit set of SD45's and have run them with a wide variety of other AZL engines with no problems. The only problems I have encountered is trying to MU AZL with MTL as the speed tables are drastically different. I tend to pair up engines that run at the same speeds so none are pulling or pushing too much as this lends to derailments.
