I think Bad_***_70 was running in the 10s on an 8.2" running an automatic.
I have made over 213 passes on 8.2" rears in my wagon. That was two different rears. I replaced the original 3.36 open rear b/4 it blew but after removing it found that the shims were shot and the pin the side gears run on was badly worn. It would have gone soon had I not replaced it.

A clutch with sticky tires could be a very different thing.

With street tires, it should be fine. I would'nt put slicks on it with a stick. If it was an automatic, I'd say it would last for ever. Mines been in the bottom 11's with slicks.
