Default 2016 Challenger RT Plus questions

Helo all !
Looking @ purchasing a 16 - 17 Challenger RT Plus
With the 8 speed xsmn

Does anyone know what gear ratio the differential is with the RT Plus with the 8 speed Xsmn ?

And is it available with anti spin / LSD ?

I also wonder if there's an electronic posi locker available ( factory installed ) like the 2017 Ram 4x4 rear end ?

Thanks for any response !

Far as I remember, 8 speed auto cars get the 3.08 rear gears. And they do have anti-spin/LSD, but don't believe any electronic lockers are available from the factory. Might put too much stress on the IRS axle shafts if they did that.

Oh and on a side note... GO HOGS!!!

Besides the mechanical limited slip differential, all Challengers have an Electronic Stability Program (ESP). A major component is traction control.

Traction control monitors wheel speed using ABS wheel speed sensors. If a wheel is slipping, traction control reduces engine power to help the wheel regain traction. If necessary, traction control can also apply the brakes to the slipping wheel. This will transfer power to the other wheel (which now has more "traction") depending on surface conditions.
