I understand people being "upset" about a v6 trying to pass off as a v8, or even a 5.7 trying to seem like a more potent 6.4... even an SRT 392 having a hellcat logo... I get that. But the brackets are simple in my opinion.
The rest seems like petty arguing about upgrades that can be bought, either oem or aftermarket, and don't constitute what the car really is. I'm in the process of getting a used SP. the one I found in my price range happens to have the HC hood and front facia, the hood is matte black, and SRT badges on the grille and spoiler, and also on the wheels which happen to be SRT as well. I don't care about the badges. SRT or R/T, doesn't matter to me, but I see so many people overly sensitive about it. Personally I would like to add "6.4l hemi" badges to the sides cause I love the engine and that's why I wanted it. However that is an SRT engine anyway. So it's like people are upset because someone is "pretending to be" the SAME car... minus a hood difference, 2 pistons in the breaks, a suspension (which many change anyway), and wheels (which also many people change)??? Seems petty. After all I have researched... the biggest confusion comes to the SP simply cause it has SRT guts but allows to also use the R/T heritage with the stock exterior. However to me, all that says is SP owners can badge it either way since they are basically half breeds of sorts. What separates an SRT 392 from the Hellcat? Only the ENGINE, since many SRT392 owners get the HC hood and bumper anyway. Minus a few tech options but that's still just luxuries. In a nutshell, I don't think I am alone in thinking... between the SP and SRT 392, it's just not that big of a difference for people to be so anal about it. The rest of the trims have very defined and major differences starting with the guts. I'm beating a dead horse at this point but I just wanna put it out there cause I CANT possibly be the only one that sees this. At least I hope...
Not trying to offend anyone or troll, just my legitimate opinion and everyone is allowed their own. I respect all and I believe we are dodge family either way. I won't put anyone down and I hope everyone who joins this chat can keep it respectful.
