Do you know of any other 2018 RT options/upgrades that will be new for this year? Love the brembo addition.

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.
You're correct for the blackout trim [grille inserts, fuel door]
*R/T Shaker (base or plus) - incl. satin black spoiler
*T/A 5.7 (base or plus) - incl satin black spoiler
*SP - requires SP App Grp to get black grille / fuel door. All SP models have satin black spoiler std.

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.

The 4-piston Brembo's are more than enough for the street. The proverbial 'put you through the windshield' expression holds true on those. If I hadn't driven the SP for a while, I'm reminded of the initial bite they have compared to typical brake systems.

Red for $195? The Charger Scat Pack comes with them painted red already. My matte black brembos started looking greyish, so I bought the G2 Caliper Paint kit and did it myself.

Charger base price is +$400 over the SP Challenger, with automatic added, so you're paying more for the Charger, even if you add the $195 red caliper option on a Challenger. Better off to just order it with the option, rather than having to do it over with repainting the calipers, IMO.

Slidd the performance handling comes with more than just brakes doesn't it? When it was posted on the other forum, it had some more additions, but some seemed kinda odd.

Yeah unless already equipped will include

Paddle shifters
Performance steering
Park assist
Performance pages
245/45-20 Goodyear RSA, F1 opt.
High performance suspension
Suede/Nappa heated vented seats

I'm a little confused on the wheels because it shows the WR2 wheels on all but T/A and T/A Plus but in the option section says for all must have WRT. I think WRT will be right. The suspension is off Scat Pack and a step above STP Sport Suspension.
