Default Could I break the rear?

With my mods in signature on 315 sumitumo's (street tires) could i break my rear. It has 101,000 miles on it and 3.73 gears (maybe 20k miles old). I am afraid of launching because i don't want to break it.

I would say it's a crap shoot. If you hook it may break. Heck it may break if you don't hook that great on a hard launch.

I'm just wondering what I could get away with. Am I just going to have to slip it off the start like normal everyday driving? That would suck because my et would be crap.

Launch under 2.5K to be safe.
