Question RWD conversion - will it help?

So heres my question, as i am a veteran tranny destroyer: You can simply convert the subaru to RWD (dont flame please, this is a serious question) by welding the center diff. Its a pretty easy conversion, but yes the rear diff probaly wont hold up too well so that may need to be replaced with an R180 or larger.

But now will the stock tranny hold up any better. By going to rwd you will eliminate a large shock on the transmission when shifting since the tires will slip. Will this be enough to make the transmission last longer? I do realize clutch dropping and hard shifts are still kind of out of the question.

Any help would be great.
