Popping noise on my 2010 GT500

Alright got a question for someone, hopefully someone has experienced this, i really want to know what this is.....

When smoking the tires in my 2010 GT500 in 1rst gear and slamming to 2nd at about 6000 Rpm s , i hear what can only be described as a some what loud popping noise coming from the rear end(it is one pop right when i throw it in to 2nd).. Can this be the rear sway bar breaking in? Or maybe just something else breaking in on the car or should i be worried??? Oh mind you the traction control is turned off as well when doing this...Tx in advance!!!!!

My car only has 1500 miles on it.....

At 6k rpm with a some what opened up exhaust, I dont know how you would be able to hear anything else pop in the car. Your right at the limiter if you are hitting the clutch just before you let up on the gas it could be enough to touch the limiter and cause the pop. I know I have done it in my car before, gets peoples attention!

if the car aint moving turning and such i can't see it being anything really suspension related. i agree with the others and its just your car poping from the exhaust.

Thank you all so much, took it to my buddy today who is a ace mechanic and he said you guys are exactly right, it was from hitting the rev limiter which in return gives off a loud popping noise....Not exactly great for the engine, but glad it's nothing to worry about, going to have to chill down a notch now....car is just to stupid fast its hard...tx again, was worried there for a second..............
