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".
Sucks hitching a ride home with the tow truck driver who is hauling your broken pride & joy back to your garage....been there, done that ...

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.
