My friend was making fun of my 1980 john deere liquifire 440 so i sorta kinda challeged him to a drag race will i make a fool of my self? The liquifire has close to 70 hp and weighs about 400lbs

the 570 has 70 hp and weighs 463 lbs
will modern technology conquer?

If you can hold on, the liquifire will pull away from that cat with little trouble. Its all about hp to weight ratio.
