2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320

The drag-oriented, street-legal 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 was recently given the green light to be modified for competition in NHRA Stock and Super Stock Sportsman class competition for the 2019 season.

Named for the quarter-mile distance (1,320 feet), the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is powered by the 392 HEMI V-8 engine that delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. With a quarter-mile elapsed time (E.T.) of 11.70 seconds at 115 miles per hour (mph), the showroom-stock Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is the fastest naturally aspirated, street-legal muscle car available.

The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 can be modified for competition in NHRA according to Stock and Super Stock class rules. The vehicle will feature a class weight break of 8.72 and carry a minimum weight of 3,400 lbs.

In Stock Eliminator, the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 fits directly into the “B” Stock category, with competitors able to move up and down to run in the “A” or “C” Stock classes.
The Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 can compete in the SS/FA class in Super Stock, but is also eligible for other specific classifications such as SS/EA or SS/GA.

The Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is also approved to race without modification in National Muscle Car Association (NMCA) events as part of the Stock/Super Stock Combo class, or in modified form in any number of other NMCA classes, making it a true street/strip vehicle.

“With the new 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 hitting showrooms, we know it’s just a short time before the ‘Angry Bee’ is buzzing the quarter-mile in NHRA and NMCA competition,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “The 1320 brings the drag racing technology we launched on the limited-production Demon and pairs it with the proven 392 HEMI engine to create a blank canvas for the serious grassroots drag racer who may have one car that needs to do double duty — both at the drag strip and on the street.”

Dodge//SRT engineers added drag-specific components and technologies that allow the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 to hit both the street and the drag strip and deliver quick launches when the Christmas tree goes green at the quarter-mile. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 features include:
· TorqueFlite 8HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission, TransBrake, Torque Reserve, which works in conjunction with the TransBrake and Launch Control by managing fuel flow to cylinders and controlling spark advance or retard to balance engine rpm and torque to maximize power delivery and launch performance, and Nexen SUR4G Drag Spec 275/40R20 street-legal drag radials.

The SRT-tuned three-mode Adaptive Damping Suspension (ADS) is electronically re-tuned for the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320, and includes Drag Mode that, when engaged, optimizes weight transfer to the rear for best launch traction.

Just like its big brother, the Dodge Demon, the Scat Pack 1320 begins with a standard interior configuration that includes the driver’s seat only to help reduce weight by approximately 114 pounds; front passenger seat and rear seat are available individually as $1 options. The model also boasts a performance-tuned asymmetrical limited-slip differential with 3.09 final drive, extreme-duty 41-spline rear axle half shafts adopted from the Challenger SRT Demon, a line lock, launch assist, launch Control, low-gloss black 20 x 9.5-inch aluminum-forged wheels with knurled bead seats to minimize tire slip on the wheel, a Brembo high-performance brake package with four-piston calipers, and a new “Angry Bee” interpretation of the legendary Dodge Super Bee logo marks the vehicle’s front fenders, instrument panel, headlamps, instrument gauge cluster startup splash screen and key fob.

In drag strip testing compared with a Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 shaves .3 seconds off the quarter-mile time to 11.70 seconds at 115 mph and cuts .3 seconds off the 0-60 mph acceleration time to 3.8 seconds.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 Package adds $3,995 to the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $38,995 for the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack. The mandatory automatic transmission adds $1,595 and the destination charge adds $1,495.
