Anyone blown a gearbox with NPC 10" Organic clutch?

Now that I'm switching to E85 soon, will probably make around 270-275rwkw and hoping for 11's at the drags I'm wondering what the chances are of blowing a gear on the drag strip. I'm using an S13 5 Speed box and I see they like to break around the 250rwkw mark but usually with clutches other than organics so I'm hoping it holds up. I never drift or clutch kick, drag racing will be the most abuse it sees.
I'd like to know if anyone has blown a gear using this particular clutch as I've read most nearing 300rwkw on the factory box are doing it with this clutch.
Down the road I was considering Z32 or Z33 gearbox at some point, but still undecided which is stronger. Although the Z33 gears are larger, there are many mixed reviews online as to the reliability of the Z33.

Z33 would be good if you had a 6 speed. If you do decide on a Z33 anyway, get a CD009. The first gen Z33 were piss weak.

That's very impressive, and even better if it was in an S15 since the 6 speed is weaker than the 5 speed.
Did the car see much drifting or drag racing? To get an idea of what sort of abuse it saw. And how long was it running on that power?
