ScatPack is the smart choice for challengers. Its an RT body with SRT guts on skinny tires. The 2016 year was a 485hp 6.4L (the hellcat is a 6.2L if i remember correctly). But with the same size supercharger applied, the scatpack will outdo the 707...some get 900hp from the 6.4.

Believe it or not, it handles it weight very very well through the bends...well...did until someone turned into me head-on, I couldn't say f*** before he hit me, it was just "fuh"

I regret not buying a used car instead of the new 09 R56 I bought back in 08. I should have just bought a 05-06 if I really wanted one. Oh well!

I regret never owning an RX-8. Yes, I know that they were unreliable, had terrible fuel economy, and not that fast. But the handling and the linear power delivery are awesome, and I love the styling. Maybe I can pick on up as a summer car and to scratch the RWD itch.
