Default R/T vs Sport

Kinda new to the forums here. I was trying to figure out how to eek a couple more horses out of my '08 V6 SXT when my brother shot me a link to my local dealership with a '12 Sport with a Hemi. I was drooling over it when he, just for fun (or so he thought), sent me a link for a '12 R/T in south Houston. Long story short, I picked up my new R/T on Thursday. Will post picks soon.

My question is, having never really even heard of the R/T until last week, what are the major differences between the R/T I bought and the Hemi Sport I didn't? Obviously there's badges (awesome), and 22" wheels, I read somewhere about 4.10 gears vs 3.76 or so on the Sport. I also read an old thread that referenced a 2600 stall converter. What other performance bonuses does the R/T have?

That's about it, gears and torque converter.

Standard gear for a Sport is either 3.55's or 3.92's
Torque Converter stall is 2300 standard, R/T has a 2600.

RT has:

Badging, every option, 4.10's, slightly higher stall converter, I think the sport appearance hood is standard, I think the 22" alcoa wheels are standard, and it has it's own suspension(springs) not shared by other models.

Cool. Thanks guys. My R/T definitely looks cooler than the Sport that was already on the lot. Now I'm off to the tint shop with it.

The Sport I was looking at had an identical interior as the R/T (maybe that was an Express). It had body-color bumpers too. Different hood and rims looked like the only real difference.

Some pics of the new R/T. Will have updates after window tint and put my Texans plates on it (waiting on registration sticker).
