The effects of rapid rotation on stellar evolution can be profound but we are only now starting to gather the data necessary to adequately determine the validity of the many proposed models of rotating stars. Some aspects of stellar rotation, particularly the treatment of angular momentum transport within convective zones, still remain very poorly explored. Distinguishing between different models is made difficult by the typically large number of free parameters in models compared with the amount of available data. This also makes it difficult to determine whether increasing the complexity of a model actually results in a better reflection of reality. We present a new code to straightforwardly compare different rotating stellar models using otherwise identical input physics. We use it to compare several models with different treatments for the transport of angular momentum within convective zones.
