Racing Parts Can Save Your Stock Car From Turning Into A Live Grenade

This is one of the rare cases where too much horsepower is a bad thing.

The problem with modifying stock cars to crank out huge horsepower is that some of the crucial components aren’t always up to the task of handling the power. This is especially true for this drag racing Nissan truck that happened to have both an incredibly strong grip between the tires and the tarmac and a differential that wasn’t up for the type of jolting launch that the driver was trying to pull off. The consequence is that the differential temporarily unleashed the energy by transforming itself into a grenade.

This poor owner now has to buy both a new differential and a gas tank since fragments of the diff punctured the container.
