Yes. You will need to launch from about 3-3.5k RPM. Otherwise you will bog down.

Honda's do not have low-end torque so they need to be 'wound up' to get any forward momentum so he is launching his car correctly.

Chances are you will lose. You'll have a better chance with weigh reduction and a tune-up. Clean MAF, check spark plugs, etc. Your best chance is if he misses 3rd. He'll be shifting into third while you're at peak power in 2nd.
