Road and Track, NOT Racing Technology. Maybe the Germs have tried to change it, but it's been Road and Track for 40 years and will always be Road and Track.

You're thinking of SRT--Street and Racing Technology. R/T has indeed historically stood for Road/Track.

Unfortunately... the history of R/T seems to be lost on the Krauts. As well as Charger. A 4 dr. Charger... an R/T SUV? Hello? They're all abbreviation happy it seems. Any name that ends with an A, I or O must sell too... even if they make up the name. I get a kick out of Armada tho. What the hell does that thing have to do with "Navy"? Nova was another one... 'Won't go' in Spanish slang I think it was. KIA is another one... "Killed In Action".

Default RE: R/T WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Actually, I read Racing Technology on the internet somewhere, did not claim it to be fact.....guess you only get to post things if your an expert? And I'm not German.

Acronym Definition

R/T Radio Telephone
R/T Real Time
R/T Receive/Transmit
R/T Receiver/Transmitter
R/T Record of Trial
R/T Reprocurement Technician
R/T Research & Technology
R/T Road & Track
R/T Round-Trip (travel booking)

And I add Racing Technology...so there.

And SXT? SXT stands for "Soft X-Ray Transient" which means that the black hole candidate orbits around a visible star which is at most about as heavy as the Sun and that the whole system occasionally emits soft X-rays.

Maybe I should have bought one of those.........Earth to FlatEric.....

"SXT" is the model code for a package that is offered on several DCX products. It is not an acronym for anything in particular.

It started with the original Trans Am Road Racing series.....all American pony cars only. R/T = road and track. I think just in the name of nostalgia, they called the hot rod Magnum ...RT.... just to use a recognizable name.....just like Hemi.

All that aside, does Dodge still stock/sell the 60's style R?T badges? The chrome units are OK, but a little color would be nice on a Midnight Blue Magnum R/T.

I thought it meant "Road and Track also. But I did read somewhere that a DCX engineer said it was Race Technology. You can buy a Charger R/T with an "R/T" option. (ten more horses, stiffer springs, basicly a Daytona package without the orange paint). So I guess it would be an R/T Charger with a R/T option package. Kind of redundant, you think?

when they introduced the R/T options, it was road and track...who knows what they have evolved it into now...
