The Lola K-Mart Texaco T93/00 was the Newman Haas entry into the 1993 Indycar season. Driven by Mario Andretti and Rookie Nigel Mansell, it was powered by an 800bhp Ford Cosworth Turbocharged 2.6 ltr XB V8 engine. The car's fuel was Methanol Alcohol which gave the car the ability to cruise at over 350km/h on oval tracks. It's suspension features pushrod activated upper rockers with inboard springs and dampers. The 1993 car featured an extensive increase in the use of Carbon Fibre elements over the 1992 car. The car eventually took Nigel Mansell to the Indycar drivers' title, the first time ever a driver has held both the F1 and Indycar Champion titles. Along with the drivers' title the team also won the Constructor's title for Newman Haas Lola.
I will be building the Red 5 Nigel Mansell car in road course rather than oval setup configuration (larger downforce wings). The build will be full detailed with as much added details as I can create with the limited references I have.
