I'm not particularly gentle with it and haven't busted anything yet.

Having the right components and build quality does help.
Here is me and my Minor leaving the start line at Gurston Down Speed Hill climb under full ('A' Series 135 + bhp) power and not a broken half-shaft or busted diff in sight.
I do believe that is smoke coming off the rear tires. lovely jubly.
No - Hardly anything is stock on my Minor
Many years ago I managed to get a pair of brand new Minor half-shafts and had them heat treated so that they would transmit a guaranteed 178bhp.
They have never let me down. I do have a spare pair on the shelf just in case but have never needed them.
Those are very sticky 7.00" slicks on the rear (and on the front too).
