    The Scat Pack Challenger with 392 Hemi, the Hellcat Challenger and the Redeye Challenger?

    There are big price differences in these 3 models.

    Like it has been said many times in the forum

    All depends of how you drive and maintain them.

    I have an IDEA,
    Buy one of each and report back to us after 5 years?

    The only way to compare is to have the same driver drive all three.

    My problem was I have a hell of a time just finding ONE of mine with a 6-speed,
    let alone THREE the exactly the same.

    I say Pick what you like, forget what the idiots on the Internet say, you won't be disappointed.

    the scat pack 392 is the cheaper way to go. infact that would be the way I would go if i was to buy a new one, I dont have the finances that other people have and I am not going to pay as much for a car that I paid for my house. I priced a scat pack 392 fur just under 50K the way I would have it. and that is much cheaper than a hell cat or a red eye, you spend another 6K on a super charger and that is still cheap than the other and have just as much horsepower as those also.

    I see your point. The Scat Pack is suppose to be the best bang for buck. I love the look of the shaker in the hood. But would you go wide body option as that will eliminate shaker hood feature and you get to pay $6,000 more for adaptive suspension, wider tires and I think better brakes. Most of which will improve performance of getting that power to the ground and making it a safer car or not as squirrely with the skinny tires.

    For me I would go shaker. That appeals more to me than the wide body.

    I concur with you on this as far as cosmetics goes that shaker is old school and looks great. Too bad you can't have it both ways because just the idea of having a more stable car and getting that power to the ground makes for better performance. I don't know why they had to change the hood style for the wide body because it limits choices for us consumers.

    My wife's cousin bought a 2017 leftover 392 Charger Daytona. That car is SICK FAST! He got it for $40K! Hell of a deal.

    Though I don't care for the looks of the WB I would probably go for it in white color since it's more functional in getting the power to the ground.

    And yet another reason I am glad I found my 2010 with only 8,500 miles :)
