Yep, seems like that option bounced around, component wise, over the years.


I liked my R/TC brakes during the time that I had the car. (4 1/2 years and 42k (s)miles. They stopped fine, and thought that Brembos weren't a big deal, or needed.


Once I got my Scat Pack, within the first few stops, I knew what these Brembos were all about. It's a major brake upgrade IMO.


The '18 R/T owners are in for a treat if they go with this option.

I believe RS said this performance package was only available for Shakers and T/As?

These are the 4 piston Brembos that come standard on the scat pack and not the 6 piston on SRT and Hellcat front brakes.

All R/T, just require STP and WRT. Shaker and T/A already have one or both.

Correct, 4-piston. Same as standard brakes on Scat Packs.

save the money and stay with black brembos. A hot chick asked if I had chicken livers stuck on my wheels. They were my red brembos on my SRT8.
She got in my head and now I realize the rest of the world sees what we don't see.

This is great news for the RT brothers! My '14 RT STP was seriously lacking in the brakes department.

When I jumped in my TA 392, the difference was incredible. I didn't know brakes made such a big difference.

I highly recommend any sort of brake upgrades, even if you don't "race", you still need to stop at some point. These 6 piston feel rock solid, I haven't tried the 4 piston but I can imagine it being a great upgrade from standard brakes.

I hope this option opens up the ability to get the WRT wheels on a 5.7 R/T blacktop. That is pretty much exactly what I am looking for.

Ooh sorry, neither the WRT wheels or Brembos will be available on Blacktop.

Looks like Blacktop on R/T also comes standard without the stripe now and it must be ordered separately if you want it.

Thanks for that info, that will help me out. Basically wanted a 5.7 R/T with the all black trim and WRT wheels but the only way to do that it seems is a shaker, T/A or jump to a 6.4 SP. Was hoping that would change for 18.

One more thing, since you seem to have the answer every time I have a question. Do they will give a $500 dollar credit for shaker stripe deletes or they do away with that? Thanks again.

No, no more $500 credit, that ended after 2016.
