Summary of the SRT Chat Session.

I have gone through the thread and picked out some of the really good stuff and put it all together. Enjoy!

Member Question:
Initially I understood the 2008 Challengers were going to have Limited Slip Diffs., but since then I've heard that only the 09's will have the "Sure Grip" version . I've had many people on this forum help explain the various types available, but I still don't know what's coming on my 08, Canadian 500.
Member Question: From an overall project standpoint, what was the overall goal when creating the Challenger SRT8 when compared to the overall goal of the Charger SRT8. Basically, how did the vision differ from the Charger SRT8 when you set out to create the Challenger SRT8?
Member Question: Knowing the Charger SRT8 is very similar in platform, I am curious if there were there any significant barriers you ran into with the Challenger SRT8 or if a lot of the things were easily translated from the Charger into the Challenger with minimal tweaking.
Member Question: Is the Challenger SRT exhaust different from the Charger SRT? Does it still have the suitcase and Resonators? Will there be Mopar brand headers, Catback, or a complete system?
Member Question: Are SRT's getting the slotted rotors? Are the SRT rotors the same size as the Chargers?
Member Question: Do the hood scoops on the SRT Challenger duct air to the intake or just flow cool air over the engine?
Member Question: The 09 SRT will have a 6spd option. Is there a diff change or it the same diff that's in the charger? If it's the same will the 3.91 gears and carrier fit in the charger diff? What size if the new ring gear?
Member Question: I noticed on the Challenger concept car that there wasn't a whole lot of room for an increase in tire size in the rear to improve "launch" traction. Does the production Challenger have the same space restriction?
Member Question: Is the Suregrip coming out for the 09's an Auburn (cone) or clutch style differential?
Member Question: Why doesn’t the summer tire option for the SRT Challenger come with P255/45ZR20 tires all around instead of P245s in front and P255s in the rear? Also, is there much of a drop-off in handling/performance between the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires and the Goodyear Eagle RS-A all-weather tires?
Member Question: Why doesn’t Dodge put on better tires like the Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position or Michelin Pilot Sport PS2?
Member Question: For the '09 MY I believe I had read that the 6-speed w/Trak Pak resulted in the muffler being replaced with two resonators. Are there any other exhaust related modifications with the Trak Pak?
Member Question: Is there something more complex than monitoring the A/F ratios and knock sensors fooling us into thinking we have a good tune on our cars when we really don't? Most people are tuning with a sniffer on the exhaust or a bung into the exhaust manifold. Any help is appreciated - thanks. I'm of the crowd who really appreciates the starting point you give us.
Member Question: Why did you guys wait till now to incorporate a 6 speed option with the Hemi engine?
Member Question: Why are you just now coming out with a true limited slip differential as opposed to the brake limited diff in the current lx's?
Member Question: Current road tests of the 2008 Challenger SRT has it consistently doing the 1/4 mi. in 13.3 sec. and 108 mph. How much faster, will the 6-speed manual be in the 2009?
Member Question: Why would the manual have a higher top speed if it has a lower gear ratio than the autostick? Also, does the manual have the same $2,100 gas guzzler tax?
Again, I would like to thank the SRT Engineers for spending their time with us yesterday and we hope to do it again sometime soon! Cheers!
