Axles? Driveshaft? And what do you guys think about the 1LE package. My dealership is selling it to me for 1300 and I have that voucher for a free install. Is it worth it?
Braking something is always a possibility on a manual equipped car even with stock tires and not making too much power. The best way to minimize the chance of breaking something is to minimize the wheel hop. The wheel hop is generally the reason guys break stuff and suspension, tires, and axles are really good things to look into for helping wheel hop.

The key to controlling the wheel hop with suspension is to control the unwanted movement in the rear suspension/rear cradle. This can be done with bushings and certain suspension parts. With a car like your I would recommend starting off with our trailing arms (TCA026) and outer trailing arm bushings (BK006). These parts are super affordable and easy to install. From there I would look into our BMR "pro" rear cradle bushing kit (BK030) and toe rods (TR002). These parts are more labor intensive but there is some overlapping labor due to having to drop the cradle to install these parts so I definitely recommend doing them all at once.

The more power you have the harder it is to control the wheel hop and tire spin so be ready for that as you continue to modify the car. At some point axles will probably be a good option for you but more than likely that won't be an issue until you start getting some traction and hooking.
