    I burnout quite a bit but I got falken's. Super easy to burn, As long as you don't rev it up to 5k and drop it I think you'll be fine. It doesn't take much to spin the tires.

    Auto trannies aren't as harsh on the 10 bolt as manuals. The risk of destroying a 10 bolt with a manual tranny is much higher than an auto blowing the rear. $2500 is good ballpark range for a 12 bolt. If you can't afford another rear right now, I would not advise too much stress for that 10 bolt.

    Spinning doesn't damage the 10 bolt. Hooking does.

    Donuts could tweak the housing (same goes for a 12 bolt) and cause failure though.

    I wheel hop on man holes all the freaking time. It's annoying and I'm starting to aviod them as much as possible. As for dounts. I'll keep that to a once a year kinda thing.

    Yeah I cant afford to replace it just yet. So maybe I should just avoid hitting 2nd and third too hard.
