So I may be about to order a 392, but still trying to decide on the trim. Even though I've never been to the track, the 1320 looks to be the best deal and its a little quicker and rarer than the standard scat pack. I like the looks of a regular scat better the way I would build it (auto, plus package, caramel seats, dynamics package, AD, upgraded radio, brass monkey wheels). But like I said, it would actually come out about 2k more that way. I know that isn't very much when considering the price of these cars, but still. I could always possibly change some of the interior bits and colors of the 1320 later aftermarket if I went that route. But what has me concerned is the drag radials for daily use. I would have to get a 2nd set of wheels and tires for winter use with either build, but would most likely have to replace the drag radials with some all seasons if I went with the drag pack so that would pretty much negate any savings between the two when ordering. Plus I don't really trust the local tire place as they left some marks on my mustang wheels when putting new tires on.

IDK, I'm still kind of considering the WB (although not sure how it would look with narrower wheels and tires in the winter) or a 50th if I can find one quick at a decent discount when one of the new colors comes out.

i picked up a set of hellcat black spoked 9.5 for the front and 10.5 knockoffs for the rear on let go, for the snows. this way i pack up the 50th rims and summer tires at thanksgiving and put them back on for Easter no tires taken on and off rims
and can enjoy the challenger throughout with out having to worry about tires and rims in NY the land of potholes . there are factory standard rims out there used at a reasonable price. 50th rims you are not finding - dodge lists them as discontinued. and used brass monkeys full sets like new with a heavy tab . most people don't spend up the price for rims they don't like.
ps. the wide bodies are nice.good luck

Thanks. Yeah, I was thinking if I got a WB and ended up getting narrower wheels for winter (they say those are better in snow), I could always put some spacers on them to put the wheels towards the outside more. I do like the look of the WB from most angles except maybe the side view and it does have better traction and handle better. I will just will have to see if I can find a deal on one with most of the options I want as they are a tad pricier. I did find a regular shaker in SS that looks sweet that has most of the options I wanted plus a couple at over 9k off. But it has the sunroof (not sure I want one as they add weight) and the black seats (would rather have tan). IDK, it is a really good discount though...

I also found a SS 1320 that looks sharp with some decent options (Alpine, plus package, NAV, driver convenience and carbon and suede package) for about the same price as the shaker. Although it isn't discounted as much (5933 versus 9158) and is way too far away at over 9 hours. I thought the other one was fairly close since its one state down, but its still a 4 hours plus drive. The dealer has some nice exterior pics of the 1320, but would like to see some of the interior with that new package. A minor strange thing I also noticed is it doesn't have the bee logo on the spoiler like I thought they added to all 2020 scats.

i drove 5 states to get what i wanted . the way i look at it for $120 hotel room + meals and a extra day to get what you really want ,is a lot less painful
then kicking yourself every month when you write the check for the next couple years because it was to far, if your looking then it to far ,if its what you really want
" then its not." as for the pics call the dealer I'm sure they will send them if you ask .

Don’t humor him, he’s been looking at purchasing a Challenger for a little over 2yrs. and 2 months.

He has been buying one for over 2 years and passed on many probably be another 2 years and he will still be undecided.

The new Super Stock is coming out, but not until later this year, and it is way more than a 1320.

Maybe it is the color.....

We drove 5 1/2 hours to buy our Shaker and we just drove 5 1/2 hours and 7 hours back to get our Hellcat. Can’t believe you have been looking for two years is this true?

I think it is...Two summers ago, I wasn't really serious and just wanted to see if I could land a killer deal and waiting to pay down my Mustang more. Last summer I actually test drove a few and almost bought a couple of them, but they were not perfect with options and then last fall I almost ordered one, but then thought I better wait and see what the 20's have to offer. This past spring I was about ready, but then I hit a snag with my credit and the virus situation hit. Now, I'm re-thinking the trim I want and still could go with one of a few trims. In the back of my mind I'm also kind of want to know what the 400z will have to offer before committing or maybe wait and see what the 2022 Challenger has in store for the next gen Challenger.

BTW, I did just find almost the perfect optioned 1320 in SS (at least as good as you can go with that trim) with everything I wanted except for maybe the carbon and suede package. They are only listing it with the PD rebate and its also a half day drive. I did take a day off work next week so I will have several days off in a row (which rarely happens) so I could take a road trip later in the week if it sounds like this dealer wants to negotiate. But I had been thinking, it may be better to get one from a local dealer even if I had to order at only 1% under invoice so that if I have to take it in for anything, I could get a loaner and possibly a discount on service work, ect.

Yep...wayyyy more...And the sticker price wasn’t even throw it out there yet..so you know its at least 80 K +
Don’t get me wrong, I hope to drive it, once it comes out but I really hoped , Dodge came up with something new/different—Maybe A non-crate 426 ...another supercharger Level up from the hellcat and what one or two levels down from the demon and the redeye?

SRT guys need to think outside the box a little further...
