You can go as fast as you want in 4x4, just don't try to turn on the pavement. Boosted launches are rough on drivetrain, but its probably not gonna break the first time you do it.

it puts alot of stress on the drive train. to do a boosted launch put it in 4H and hold the brake while pressing the accelerator, build up boost. you will take a few times to figure out what the brakes will hold. when you feel that the brakes wont hold it anymore then let off and floor it.

My buddy has a 96 OBS with 5 speed. He slips the crap out of it in second for take offs to build his boost a little quicker on the starts. Then he turns into a gear jammin fool. Definately can't hold the boost like an auto, but with practice a guy can get pretty good.
