I doubt you broke anything. Most higher mileage rear ends only spin one tire during a burnout because the clutches in the rear end are worn out. You could probably use a rebuild. I'd suggest getting the carbon fiber kit. It's much more aggressive and supposedly lasts longer. It's what I have in my rear end and it locks up great and spins both tires.

The clutch packs come pre stacked and in order how they should go into the rear end. My buddy who I did my rear end with restacked them for a more aggressive lock up.

I don't remember off hand in which order we did them. But you can add or alternate the carbon clutches and the steel clutches in a different way to make it slip more or less depending on how you want it to react. Mine is tight and packed in there with an extra carbon clutch I remember that for sure. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're sure you want it to behave a certain way. You can google they ways to do it. Lots of information out there about it. Truck guys do it for sure.

You saying that's what my 1/4 would be? Is that decent for a bolt on 2v minus cams?

Yes an 8.5 1/8 is 13.30 1/4. Stock 5 speeds run 13.9-14.2 depending on driver and conditions so yes your car is right on track and I bet with practice you could shave a couple tenths off

Go buy a Eaton Tru trac. No clutches and you wont ever have to worry about a rebuild.
