Abel Ibarra's R100 Comeback **PIC**

I know the picture has been out since last year but thought I would post it

I'd like to see him bring the R100 back out.

I would love to see the R100 too but with such a short wheelbase I doubt if Abel would bring it back- too scary

Isn't "little Gabriel" running 7.4's on the same wheelbase? I don't see it being a problem once the chassis/suspension is upgraded but Abel might need to get some big kohonies to drive that thing at those speeds...

So is that what it will look like again. It looks like before with the ghost flames or did he do anything different with it? Cant wait to see the R100 back in action.

Well just about all the heavy hitters in PR run the Starlet chassis which is even a shorter wheel base than the r-100 so it all boils down to who's doing the chassis tuning and everyone in the buisness know where those chassis tuners all hail from.
No question about it the PR racers have the best combination in chassis tuners/builders, engine builders/tuners and drivers.
You can never argue with proven results!!!!!

Yeah, PR is top of the rotary food chain for sure and I love those Starlets even though I'm not a fan of missmatching brands.

Hey, does anyone know who did the original artwork for this... it's very nice; I'd like to get a high-res copy.

Thanks,

I saw the R100 run in Dallas, it was awsome! the RX7 ran 7 flat, but the R100 was a wild pass every pass

its 7.3...@ 181mph...but his WB is over 100..i think 103.
Either way Anais, sarita just to name a few are still 90-92WB & let it be known..Someone WILL run 6.90s in a starlet chassis..

Just a matter of time.

Thanks buddy, but now we know the chassis is capable after seeing similar PR wheelbase run insane times BUT is the engine & tuner capable? that is the real question here
