No clue, you can probably find a '21 sales brochure on-line & see what was offered. The SRT wheels are wider & have a diff off-set than the R/T's.

So got into it with a Later Model Challenger HC the other day. I was in sport mode, not using Launch, traction control off. I was through the intersection before he had any real traction. I have no doubt it would have been different from a rolling start.

It was cold out but we both had our windows about half way down. It was so neat to hear both Superchargers whining away at each other.

I wanted to talk but he took the interstate.

It wouldn't surprise me if an older air cooled 911 would beat a Hellcat through an intersection. Especially if it's cold.

If he wants all of them and can only have one, how does your statement fit?

I don't think a Charger or challenger hellcat on street tires(especially stock rubber) could hang with a Durango or Trackhawk, especially in the cold season on the street. My car doesn't hook on 305 Michelins this time of year below 80 mph. In the summer though my car is fairly quick out of the hole and then a monster up top, would eat a Durnago up even after a couple car lengths on the launch.

But I've been to the drag strip on rear drag tires with my Challenger and it's so much faster than either of those two it's not even funny, like way over a second quicker. Roll out even and then just pull away like it's a 392.

I've run both Durangos and Trackhawks at the track and handled both of them when we were all stock.

So you don't consider a SUV built on a truck platform to be a truck?
