Well the first thing you should look into is how much is actually costs to ship a car overseas the right way. The answer is A LOT. Not sure if the military helps you with that or not. It's also a very slow process.
Now to your actual question: Yes to the driveshaft and yes to brakes. The stock brakes, especially if you have the non-Brembo Performance package suck. Now you don't have to go out and get the $2000-3000 big brake kits, a good rotor and pad swap will give you a nice boost in bite. I recommend the Powerstop Street Warrior kit. ~$400 for all four rotors, pads and hardware.
As for tires, look for something with high speed ratings (google tire speed ratings so you know what to look for.) You'll want something grippy, especially if you take it around the mountain roads/hairpins up there. Look through some reviews.
But if you do plan for mountain roads, you'll also need to look at some suspension work. Struts/shocks, springs, panhard bar, sway bars and a good strut tower brace should firm it up.
