Unless your car has made any exploding sounds it is probably just fine. The newer gears are stronger but with launching the car hard there is always some risk of breaking things.

fatigue comes from constant loading and unload or shock loading. Shock loading is the worst.

Clutch surfaces and be worn down with normal driving to a good layer if it wasnt in bad shape. Just be gentle with the launches or it will break. If it does then oh well. Replace it. Its not that hard.

It should be fine. If the trans is ok now then ur ok. I heard a few trans blowing the day after taking some abuse. This is what happened to mine. But don't sweat it You have the slightly better gears in the 08+

Stress fatigue is cumulative... Read around, for everyone 1 person that destroys it on a launch, there are probably 5 that have it happen on normal road driving. The hundred launches earlier in the cars life caused it, it just happen to show up much later.
