Funny you should mention, I did the same thing to my car last night.
I was powering hard up an on ramp, was at 6000 rpm when I shifted to 2nd gear. Bang! from the rear end and grinding. Coasted to the side, looked inside the right rim and there was grease all over the place, from the outboard CV joint. Don't know if I messed up the rear end or not. I will find out more after the dealership digs into it.
It has me wondering about how the CV joints are going to handle all the superchargers being put on our cars.
