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?

^the express has the bottom line interior, the RT (and maybe some sports) I think have leather and all that jazz...
Only thing my truck did not come with was trailer hitch cause i had my own other then that you name it its got it lol

r/t's also come with 22'' rims beefed up suspension different torque converter and the badge on the grill that so many have put on there trucks (posers) lol

My RCSB Sport 4x4 will Crush any of the local R/T's at the track here. :gy:

aftermarket has better options for suspension, torque converters, and better gears
I race it on 4 drag radials in 4WD ...now I'm taking down 6.1L SRT8's

Yes it cost me more than a stock R/T but who wants to drives a stock truck, to me it's worth every penny I've spent.



SRT8's go for over $50k+ so I still came out okay for LOT less.
Wooooooo cool them jets we were talking about leather lol

Hey not saying your wrong but on my window sticker it says leather interior does it look just like yours yep is it leather the f if i know im not a seamstress i hope it is since ive been treating it with leather cleaner for awhile, hope if its not that wont hurt it. But what about the dash and steering wheel they look leather. So if its not leather what is it and does leather conditioner f it up

It's called Caprice vinyl officially, but its not real leather.

Ram's with the "Real Leather" option look very similar,
but the seat inserts are perforated leather.

Are your inserts perforated leather, or cloth "Y.E.S." material?
So will it hurt to use leather conditioner and ya i have the seats with the cloth in the middle but what about the dash and steering wheel
