Apparently Canadian cars in 09 didn't get red lines on the tachs...Does anyone in the US have a car with no red line??? Also, I wonder if the 10's in Canada have red lines???? I'll have to do some checking.....:?:

The tach is accurate...hits rev limiter at 5800 rpm...just that Canadian cars didn't get the red line....Chrysler never stops amazing me...Just like the SE "G" package in the US is the "SXT" in Canada....And all PCP Canadian cars are fully loaded Autos.....Makes no sense....

Why even have a tach if there is no redline?
does not make sense to me.

Oh I'm sure it's an accurate guage but every tach I have ever seen has the red line.
But then again I'm no auto savant or anything.
I never did understand the SXT challenger myself since it's basically, like you said, a SE G

Have to take her in for the battery / cable recall when she's out of storage so maybe I just might see if the dealer has any clue about the "no red line" on Canuck cars....Doubt they do though...:eyeroll:

I don't think they have it based on the rev limiter, but that can be over ridden with a Tuner, if I recall, my 09' didn't have it either.

Yes indeed, the US cars (on the R/T) are painted at 5800 rpm...And yes, if you get the predator you can raise the rev limiter if you like but I wouldn't risk it...Steve

I don't think they have it based on th erev limiter, but that can be iver ridden with a Tuner, if I recall, my 09' didn't have it either.

Maybe for some reason they think 5800 revolutions per minute in the US equates to 7xxx revolutions per minute in Canada? How many seconds are in a minute there? hahah :rofl:

There was no redline on the tach of my 04 Rumble Bee, thought it was cause it was an auto. So I was suprised to see one on my Challenger SE auto. They most likely were just trying to save costs on the use of all the extra ink required to put speedo in KPH or maybe one of the packages was redline delete, for the lowersound group, as they thought u would shift by ear since u bought the cheaper radio, who knows?
