Stock 10 bolt out of a six speed car (3.42 gears, we just swapped the entire rear end over). This rear has 50-60k miles on it and we have a rear end girdle on it. I also have a stud kit for the caps in the rear end but we forgot to put it in.

Auto cars preload the driveline so they put far less punishment on the rear than the 6 speed cars do. An auto can go WELL into the 11s on the stock rear given a proper setup. 6 speed cars have been known to break rears on nothing more than sticky tires bone stock. I <3 my auto. :)

Depends on your mods, your tires at the track, and how hard you try to launch it.

Street tires + average launches = fine (spin).
Drag radials + average launches = fine (bog).
Drag radials + aggressive launches = a little change (spin, break).
Sticky tires + aggressive launches = crapshoot (spin, bog, or break, very high chance of breaking though).
