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?

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.

The OP was just asking for the differences between the sport model and RT model. I don't believe he asked what trucks are better than his, or where the short comings of his truck are.

I've seen my buddy's 2011 RT a couple times, and only been inside and driven it once. What stuck in my head as far as the interior mainly is the nice looking leather dash. I don't recall the seats.
