A Ricer called me out, launch in 4wd or 2wd

Alright my buddys friend says his del sol is fast and everything, its turbo'd and he just put a sweet jdm motor in it ( sarcasm ) and he said he wanted to race my truck so should I leave in 4wd or 2wd?

So I really want to beat him so I was thinking about leaving in 4wd. Is this even safe for the truck? I dont want to be blowing anything up or hurt my transmission. How long should I hold it for and what should I bring my boost up to? Also Im low on my tires right now because I havent put my 35's on and had a little fun with my old tires.

I dont know if this was supposed to go in this section but can some help me
