    Quite honestly....ANY modern rear is likely to detonate with super sticky drag slicks and the kind of power that a Demon puts out.
    The only bulletproof rear is the good 'ole FORD 9".

    Since it was touted as a drag racing car I guess Dodge is on the hook for replacements.

    Go racing, blow up car, take it back to dealer for repairs under warranty, can't beat that with a stick.

    The MSN article sheds more light on the issue. Dodge is investigating.

    When you are dead, you donít know you are dead. It is difficult only for others. It is the same way when you are stupid.

    Overheard at Dodge Dealer repair facility, "I was sitting at this stoplight in town, and some yahoo in an old Mercury Marauder pulled up next to me reving her 4.6. She said she had a whipple, so I goosed it when the light turned green, and I don't know what happened!"
