That being said, the 5a is light and you like to destroy your clutches and gearboxes so maybe it is worth looking at?
Yes, maybe an automatic is the answer although not sure how that would work at curbs......

Brian, maybe take it for a couple of track days and see if you can find the max limit??

But i think we are up against a completely different stylee car and the calcs don't take that into consideration. I think driving a GTE to within an inch of its life is the best reward, anyway.
