Default What makes an R/T an R/T

What is the difference between a R/T and a Sport besides the badge and wheels?

As said above except you can get an RT will some of the bells and whistles.. cloth seats. Main points are the 22" wheels, the 4.10 rear axle ratio, and the higher stall torque converter.

Different springs(possibly shocks too but I'm not sure)
Sport performance hood is standard I believe
22" alcoa wheels
4.10 LSD
Loose torque converter
Badging
All the bells and whistles

I think that's the complete list.

Badging is more like Badge. We got ripped off on that. There is only one on the grille. Most off us add more our selves.

Lower towing capacity on the RT also than the Sport.

ride height, towing capacity, etc are effects of the suspension, torque converter, etc.

I don't think this is correct, even though it has a different suspension. My buddy's 2011 RT sat higher than my 2010 SLT when we were both stock. We measured, he was like 1" taller.
