better the half shafts than your gears, they're lots cheaper than new gears. Check with Chaste Automotive or Gruppe-s for new half shafts.

well, only ones i could get were for competition cars(from europe, either a rally car or some sort of road race car), chaste helped me out, (from europe) and new ones were 3000 for rears only, and 1600 for slightly used out of a race car (30000km)...i opted for factory ones. 450 is a little easier to handle

I think I would practice safe sex and forget the dropped clutch starts. Ignoring eather may cause much grief.

The Driveshaft Shop in New York has aftermarket axles for WRX's
that can handle up to 900 HP and are definately beefier than both WRX and STI and they are cheeper than new factory
replacements. I did a Yahoo search for WRX axles to find them.

I am not willng to break any of them nimrod. In 75,000
miles I have yet to break. I Rallycrossed for 3 seasons
and thrash it but have yet to break. The bright thing to do
is "maintain" your equipment so you do not break. My clutch
was getting weak so I replaced it. My CV joints were getting
weak , so I replaced them. Do you really think that stronger
CV joints are going to cause you to break a tranny? I strong
CV joint with no slop will aid tranny longevity. Get real man!

There's no need for name calling, you can make your point just as well being civilized.

Yes, I do believe that 'upgrading' the driveshafts makes it more likely to break something else in the drivetrain. But, to your point, it also depends on the driver.

The recipe for disaster is an upgraded clutch, sticky tires and stronger drive shafts. Something always has to give. In your case, it sounds like you are smart enough to 'give' a little at the right foot. Many of the modders of these cars don't know when to be delicate.
