Yep seems to me that a 100 should be safe, but.....
IIRC those guys were both already running really low 8's before juice with mostly just tune, tires . that might have played into their problems a bit. and i think both ran 7's before they let go and I think both let go right of the line at the track. Both ib a zex that is usually consider safer than most,
a progressive system might be an even better idea on yours than mine. that allows the nitrous to ramp up rather than just hit. It also can be faster because it it's smoother and has less chance of spinning.
done right it does seem that a near stock 4g 4door should be able to hit 12's on a 100 shot with drag radials.

Other possibility, I don't know what the hold back is on the 4g trucks but based on what I've seen the challengers do, the trucks should be able to get to mid 13's on motor with tune and tires.. (well headers,CAI, and exhaust wouldn't hurt either)

I'm at 14.5 with minor mods and the 3.21 gears....The R/T single cabs are mid to high 13s with minor bolt-ons!

yep if it was me, I'd be looking for mid 13's before doing nitrous. probably gears, a mild easily streetable stall and some drag radials, that way on a just a little juice you run 12's day in day out or the 13's on motor.

Thanks for the tip! I should be high 13s with just gears and tires. I ran 14.5 @ 98 on 87 tune and the 20s.
Sucks because I am trapping 3-4 mph than some mid 13 second passes!

Speaking of mph, you should make sure you are not using the 2p gear at WOT. Can't recall at the moment how to prevent that on the 4gs. Using that extra gear increases mph but doesn't necessarily improve ET and overall it's just not healthy for the trans, esp once you start running nitrous.
It really becomes a very different animal with gearing and DRs,
