This is a good start. Now what can be done in the weight reduction arena...
Well, not a whole lot really. Not for the big ones. Barring expensive materials like carbon or aluminum, just not a lot of places you can shave weight without adding cost. Full size cars weigh, its simply a matter of being big.

I used to own one of the first SRT-4s sold, bought it new in Feb 2003, sold it Nov 2006 with 75K and Stage 3. Now I drive a 2006 SRT-8 Charger.

I don't Think it's smart to waste the money on a dart Srt... They only sold less than 13,000 2012 darts that's not good AT ALL

I know it wasn't out for the full year

There were 25k darts sold last year, and considering it didn't start production until half-way through the year and even then in very limited quantity that's not horrible. It should have been higher, but it's still tough to sell people a 1.4l engine in a 3200lb car.

Yeah, I hear ya. It sure would be cool to get a 6.4 hemi chally in the 3600lb range, especially with the unlocked ecu's they have now.

Then hope the Barracuda is what we suspect it might be. A real Camaro/Mustang competitor.

We're thinking about it. If it comes from SRT, it has a certain expectation. It can't be a me-too car, which is a compliment. We're very nervous to bring out anything that isn't jaw-dropping. To do jaw-dropping stuff takes time, investment, a bigger team. I'm in no rush; the platform is here to stay. We'll see.
If Ford can build the ST I don't see why SRT can't build the srt4, obviously you want the SRT to perform better and that may be where the problem lies. With current EPA standards, maybe there having a hard time finding the right power train?

Hell, if Mercedes can field a 360hp awd four banger, no reason the SRT guys cant do the same. Or at least a 320hp fwd. Hell, wouldntr be surprised if the Daimler guys didnt walk out the door with all the Stage 3 test data and used that to help develop the CLA45 AMG motor. How many other factory tested (for street usage) fours of that power level have there been?

I was pondering along the same lines.

So what's the latest on this? Sorry, I'm too lazy to read through this whole thread and I didn't want to start a new one and get flamed even more.

I've been searching like crazy on the web and haven't found anything solid as of late?

Absolutely nothing. The R/T has been relabeled to "GT", adding fire to the rumors that the FWD SRT is going to be a slightly subdued "R/T", and there will be a $35k+ AWD SRT Dart.

Dodge right now shows cars no more than 6-months away from their availability, so they're playing their cards close to their chest. A basic SRT-ize cycle on the Dart would have been done by now.
