I will add: flexing on a top fuel dragster is promoted to improve traction. I suppose they can engineer the chassis to keep the wheels planted.

Is it to improve traction or to bend instead of snapping in half?

Traction in this case is likely to keep the front tires still in contact with the pavement to allow steering corrections, rather than acceleration tractive issues.
