    Okay, I've got this from a car magazine: Crome&Flames. It was a 1970 Challenger R/T Hemi special. Here's what it said:

    "This car was the first Hemi Challenger R/T. R/T stands for Road and Track. Road seems normal but Track? Track because this Hemi also feels at home on a dragstrip. There were many young kids who would go out and rent this Hemi and go dragracing with it, because of it's 425 horsepower."

    So there you go R/T stands for Road and Track.

    Thank you. But it is pretty obvious it means Road And Track. I mean look at the Viper RT/10, Charger RT. All these cars feel home on the road as well on the track... But now I think about it. Viper RT/10, does the RT stand for Road/Track???

    I was joking in my last post it is deffenetly Road/Track because i dont think a viper would be a rally car.

    Road and Track. Rapid transit was part of Plymouth. Dodge had the Scat Pak. Many believe the Challenger and the 'Cuda were the same, but in fact these 2 cars shared virtually no sheetmetal. The Plymouth Barracuda was styled with sharper lines, as the Challenger was more upscale with smoother curves and more chrome. The Challenger was larger as well, it was 191.3 inches long comapared to the 'Cudas 186.7 inches. It was wider at 76.1 inches wide as the Plymouth was slimmer at 74.4 inches. Finally, the Challenger rode on a 110 inch wheelbase (the Barracuda was on a 108 inch wheelbase). Ironically, with similar options, the E-bodies's weights were pretty much identical. No matter what R/T means, it stands for raised performance characteristics.

    Perhaps the Japanese phase will end soon and we can get back to real competition.

    hey i was watching a kind of birgraphy on the 71 challenger on Supercars.net, and they said it was road and track. Just casue you hear it from someone doesnt mean its true, you have to get it in writing, seriously an authorized dodge dealer or just go to some other website or something but dont just tell us and expect us not to ask for proof<!-- Signature -->
