I have now had my R/T Classic 6 speed for 2 1/2 months. I love the look of the car and sound, but I find myself wanting a little more. I originally had planned to purchase an automatic SRT-8 and to use it as my daily driver. This way my wife could drive it occassionally, and I would not get annoyed in traffic with the stick. Well, after reading a lot of threads this car will be my daily driver as I will be selling my winter used Pontiac Grand Prix no matter what I end up doing. Some will be mad at me for saying this, but the brakes on the R/T do not instill confidence at all. I have also noticed a lack of steering response through the wheel the more I drive it. I have the Super Track Pack, which helps rectify this to an extent, but I seem to rememer the SRT-8 feeling more planted and responsive. I also miss those SRT seats as I cannot find an ideal position for my R/T's seats for some reason. In fact, after I drove the SRT and R/T back to back with autos, I had written the R/T off. Then I drove the R/T with 6 speed and bit the bullet. It is still a wonderful car, but I am kicking myself since knowing I could have had the 6.1L SRT-8 for not much more. The 392 obviously is a different animal, but I do not want to spend 45k on a car right now. Therefore, I am left with a decision to make - keep my R/T Classic and do some minor tweaking OR get a used auto 6.1L SRT-8 and leave it alone. I could pick up one with 2k miles right by my house for 33K. I would probably lose about 3K on my R/T because of taxes. I don't care about gas mileage as I get about 18mpg with my R/T right now on premium. The SRT-8 I would imagine 15mpg with the auto due to my mixed driving commute. Anyone switch from a 6 speed to auto R/T to SRT-8? I think a part of me would miss the stick, but it would be nice to let the Mrs. drive once in a awhile. Plus, it is not be as stressful. Sorry for my ramblings. You guys have great insight, so I figured I'd ask. Any former R/T owners go through anything similar, or am I just crazy?
