So just so I have this straight...everything on this car should be some sort of metric bolt/nut, by default, or is it kind of a mixed bag when it comes to things like fasteners for exterior pieces?

I believe that is the quintessential issue that it boils down to. It essentially depends on where a person prioritizes engine vs options on their criteria list for this particular kind of car. I...

It may very well be, for all I know. ;)

I just know that the more commonly seen 1/4 x 20 thread does not work. So it worked out that a 1/4 x 28 (finer pitch) did the trick.

If anyone with...

Just comparing torque peak isn't really enough to tell you what's going on down low. The current Eagle Hemi was a significant improvement over the pre-vct Hemi. It's a one generation improvement...

It [newer transmissions in the vein of the A8] definitely addresses the situation from the opposite extreme...no doubt about that!

The Dodge Magnum was awd with a pre-vct Hemi (350 hp?), it weighed 4400+ lbs, and it had a tall 2.65 axle, right? Yes, that is a lot to pull, but I promise you...you put a v6 in its place, and...

This little bit is a conceptually flawed argument, altogether. The real value in the v8 is not necessarily the pk hp (I presume that is the "extra hp" you refer to). It is just a stronger engine...

The 6.1 is not the same block, period, iirc. It's very similar in some dimensions, but not derived from the Eagle block, at all.

I'm almost thinking maybe the better direction to go is smaller diameter and stronger metallic material (i.e., titanium). That's only if you stay reasonable with the hp/torque rating. Once you are...

The whole notion of weight reduction vs rotational mass can be a bit dicey when it comes to stuff like driveshafts (so be careful). Things can be made in a lighter material, and it will likely be...

I don't know if that [25% take rate from the RT] is a given or not. It comes down to the buying philosophy that is applied as far as picking the car...tons of options vs elemental powertrain...

Still...3900 lbs is not a wispy-light SE Challenger, any longer.

Additionally, some RT's have come in around 3970-ish lbs, as well.

Interesting tidbit from the article:

CURB WEIGHT (F/R DIST) 3,900 lb (53/47%)

It's no longer the "svelte" weight of earlier SE's, nor is it 50/50 like somebody suggested earlier (not that I...

I'll be the first to admit that the 235 wide Michelin "touring" tires that come on a stock RT are way short for the job. It's not the car...it's the tires. If that is what is being compared in that...

You don't want to listen...that much is clear. The take-home point, at this point...by your own actions, you may be as much of the problem as the "people" you are railing against. Think about it.

Suffice to say, turning every discussion into an SE vs RT battle is a poor strategy. It just muddies the water, on what people are really saying.
