Not a lot will break in these cars unless your running 200rwkw +... You might be unlucky and have an axle twist a bit, but its pretty unlikely! If you have a weak box and smash third, its possible to strip it, but again pretty unlikely! You might tear an engine mount..
Seriously, dont worry about it, just drive it. If something f**k up, it f**k up.

I was thinking about a cushioned button clutch for my EB, but went for a RPM organic HD setup instead, it was more within my current budget range & suitable for the power i have, and i don't think i'll be getting much more outta my EB, have too many other projects to work on.

Regarding engine mounts, they are not too hard to tear or weaken drastically when you have a manual. Mine with 50,000 kms on them are now getting too soft or they are torn, i can hear the exhaust knocking on the floorpan again. I've got an idea about how to make them last longer, but it will also increase vibration into the car somewhat, but i don't mind that. I'll be replacing the mounts again soon.

Cheers

This is definitely something you will have to keep in mind.
The problem i was having with my no name HD clutch was if you took off very hard with a new set of Dunlop 3000A's in the dry i found that sometimes my foot would be off the clutch and the engine would be revving, the tyres weren't spinning..........
Then the smell of burning clutch...The weak point.
So i put the xtreme clutch in and the clutch never slipped again......
Then i put some Eagle F1 ASYM tyres on and the grip is amazing and i can load up the clutch beautifully.
Which means with the extra force now going through my drive train, what will break next??????


I remember reading an article where the author had interviewed Brendan Mock after he built up that white EF or EL XR6 with a Powerdyne supercharger on it. He was running fairly s**t tyres on the rear to make that the slip point to prevent breaking the driveline.
