I also was looking into the 8 speed R/T, but my dealer couldn't even build one when I asked them about it. I since have come to the conclusion that the 8 speed takes away too many things that make the R/t unique. With the TorqueFlite you lose the special TC and the 4.10 gear. And the rotary knob, although cool, doesn't seem very sporty. With the console shifter, I can replace that with something neat, the knob you can not.
