This is why you get the warranty, C7 Corvette blows out rear end using launch control

When it comes to getting a brand new Chevrolet Corvette, it is hard to resist the temptation to wheel your new car straight to the drag strip and make a couple of passes.

In this one, we check out a brand new C7 that heads to the track and tries to use launch control, when all of a sudden, disaster unfolds.

We watch from inside of the cockpit as the car goes to launch and the next thing that we know, a loud thud quickly brings the pass to a close.

Originally, everyone on hand thought that the extent of the damage done was limited to a broken axle, but it would get a little bit more complicated than that.

Check out the video below that shows the unfortunate situation where the spider gears are ripped straight out from the rear end, leaving this Corvette owner with a hefty repair bill.
