We've seen plenty of videos of the Tesla Model S showing its taillights to other cars in drag racing--sometimes even embarrassing some expensive supercars.

The horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the closest thing to a production drag racer that's ever been built—which is why a slow-motion video showing the rear axle exploding on two different Demons during an event in Texas last month has raised concern among owners and prompted an internal investigation at Dodge.
