If you have attended the SRT Track Experience then you would knooooow that all SRT's are track CAPABLE cars made for daily driving on the street!!! Especially the 2 gens! These cars are very comfortable on the street and very capable on the track.. THE PERFECT blend of both worlds! I attended the SRT Experience and beat the crap outta those cars all day in 104 degree heat! 90mph turns 120mph straights... Eyeball bulging braking on the new all season RSAs! The BEAUTY of the SRT is you can have all the luxury bells and whistles, comfort, looks, decent mileage AND performance of a track car! Street and Racing Technology is the perfect definition! The only true track car offered now is the BOSS purposely built for the track horrible on the street as a daily driver. I honestly would like to see two professional drivers race 10 laps in a bone stock Boss vs a bone stock YJ 6spd then switch. I know the BOSS would win but by how much?!! Point being I would rather have a car I can drive in comfortably every day, that I can go rip up the track on the weekend! Vs driving a track car everyday on the street. After attending the SRT Experience I learned that I have NEVER came close to pushing my car to its true capabilities on the street! I also learned that I will never try to on the street. The extra $ you spend on a SRT is truly worth it if you want a well balanced performance vehicle. I often see the comparison between the R/T and SRT being mostly in the hp and straight line performance, but it is so much more than that :thumbup:

I love the rt. but it's not for me. As I said before the only thing they have in common is the skin pretty much. Srt is a COMPLETELY different car, I meant beast. Can you hear me? You rt guys.
Like I said, love the rt but its not for.
There's nothing wrong with owning a rt. I stare at everyone of them on the street drove one and loved how smooth and classy it was. Even pushed it hard so I can at understand the rt guys. Loved it but again it's not for me.
You rt guys should proud and happy with your cars and beat on us or say what if .....
Stop all the non sense. We're all passionate challenger lovers. The beauty of it is its diversity.

P.S. I also went to the srt track.
I was able to push those cars to the limit (and actually beyond it, and I in trouble for it at the course) because no matter how hard I pushed the damn car, It would not loose it. Then when we went on the hot lap, I asked the instructor from scale of 1 to 10 what level were we pushing it and he said 4 or 5. Then he said he'll show me an 8. And my god, I was blown away.
So go drive a 392 and you'll understand that it's not about hp. IT'S A COMPLETE DIFFERENT BEAST.
And that ahole who reviewed it, should've taken it to track and then gave his HONEST opinion. Not be sarcastic and compare it to a fat chick. (Guess he was referring to his wife from firsthand experience)
The srt is a Balanced car, period.
I'm done here

I'm pretty sure he doesn't hate the SRT by any means, I think what he is saying is that SRT owners believe they drive the chariot of the gods and look down upon R/T guys when in reality the differences are negligible.
I'm sure the SRT is a completely different beast than the R/T, just like I'm sure a 426 swapped into an R/T would be a completely different beast than an SRT. You have to put it all in perspective.

Some people will choose an R/T just because of the classic package. does that make them inferior? Not at all, infact drop a new gen 426 crate and there and you'll have an iconic throwback that stays true to it's roots while delivering even more power than an SRT.

Some people will choose an SRT because of the clout that comes with owning one, is that a bad thing? Not at all. Everyone should get what suits them best, and what they are gonna enjoy, and should also respect others decisions even if they differ.

GRRRRRR with that completely diff beast metaphor again lol!!!
bro, it's a 470 horse 392 not a 580 Horse Tall Block Chebby BB. Now that's a diff beast. I don't consider 100 horses to be a diff beast.

It does have something to do with nostalgia as well I recall hearing a guy on here mention that R/T badge, and that is the one thing I really loved seeing and that is something only the R/T Challenger has, it is , was and always has been the R/T badge as far as Challenger lineage goes.Change is always a constant though as things always progress and that progression led to the SRT8 with corinthiean leather and butt crack warmers lol.

Hmm... After hours of track abuse at the SRT Exp... Those Brembos performed flawlessly!!! I don't understand how we did hours of laps and not one cars brakes FADED to the point of skidding, a malfunction or accident! They seemed to work better the hotter they got!

I agree 100hp is not a different beast... 100hp+better handling+better braking+forged wheels+ stickier tires+LSD= a different beast!!!

Back to the 100hp... If that doesn't make SRT a different beast than a R/T alone... Then why do so many put superchargers on their R/Ts and THEN say... Now It's a totally different beast?!! Or... I can now run down a SRT?!! I understand the heritage spirit of the R/T name plate... I don't understand why so many are offended by SRT name plate and owners?!!

Forget that it's 100 ponies. When your looking at 370 HP and you increase it by 28%, yes that is a "diff beast"! Hey you started this thread. Not me.
