Would that strut brace be color-coded to match exterior paint?
That Mopar single piece brace probably wouldn't clear the shaker scoop - instead Mopar offered these (this is my car)

The Mopar strut braces have been powder coat silver metallic and have the riveted on Mopar brand plate.

The color match braces are aftermarket items

Welcome to Challengertalk Sullonone. It's looking like the GT is now more a level between SXT and R/T. With the GT having more options included, and perhaps available. On the Charger at least, the SXT versions get the 292HP V6, while the GT version gets the 300HP version. All SXT and GT Challengers get the 305HP version and the A8. Thus SXT is both RWD and AWD, as is the GT. Looks like you can get the Performance Handling Group on the GT (not sure of the AWD GT).

See the options here:

Yeo, the one piece MOPAR brace won't fit the Shaker.


The TA will more than likely have this one for the factory option. They do make a difference:

I wish Dodge would offer a real T/A performance package from the factory, despite their weight and size these cars can really handle if they're set up correctly.

I'd include stuff like front and rear strut braces, subframe connectors, lowering springs or coilovers, beefed up rear linkage, poly bushings all around, an option for something equivalent to MagneRide suspension (I think the SRT adaptive isn't as advanced), maybe a different hydraulic steering box with a tighter ratio, hell maybe even an option for carbon ceramic brakes for those with really deep pockets. And an option for side exit exhaust if possible. And for God's sake, much better tires, sized 305 or larger in the rear.

All that together would be expensive, but maybe they could offer them all as separate options, or as different level performance packages like Ford does with the Mustang.

Don't understand the lack of a T/A Widebody either, it seems like a natural and would look incredible. Maybe for 2020 we'll get the 426 Widebody T/A and SRT back!

Those struts look good. I noticed you have torred w/ the black/ruby redy interior. How does those shades of red match? Internet pics don't do it much justice. If you were to do it again would you do the same, or go w/ black interior? Thanks for the info!

Torred is a brighter shade of red over the Ruby red - I'm fine with that. Its more of what I'd refer to as a "vintage red" vs. how the 50s / 60s Chevys had really bright red interiors.

Here's another shot of my interior - one's in natural sunlight, the other is with flash fill - digital cameras will skew colors especially reds with orange overtones

I LOVE my ruby / black leather - only offered for '15/'16. I did not want an all black interior

You can essentially order that car now as a Scat Pack with the options that made the old SRT392 different from the old Scat Pack. So my guess is the thinking is there was no reason to have a separate SRT392, just option the Scat Pack with the adaptive suspension and all the goodies that were on the old SRT392.

I'm very interested in what the 1320 drag package is going to consist of, a bump in power for the 392 would be nice but probably too much to hope for. I know it says late availability but hopefully we get some details on this package soon, as it might help a few folks decide if they need to start saving their pennies.
