1999 Dallara IR9 Model Car Kit, 1/25 Scale
In 1999, Dallara captured Indy and the Championship for the second year in a row. The 1999 Dellara IR9 chassis was closely based on the very successful 1998 IR8 chassis. A revised internal structure for the engine air intake resulted in a larger opening for the Dallara's signature round air box. The radiator inlets in the side pods got smaller when their lower edge was raised, which also changed the shape of the under tray for the car. Another revision to the side pods introduced right before Indy involved moving the radiator air outlets from the upper corners of the side pod down onto the side of the side pod. This was an option provided by Dallara, but not adopted by all teams running their chassis. Both Greg Ray and Kenny Brack ran the first iteration side pod, with air exits like the 1998 version, in the 500. Jeff Ward ran the newer design at Indy, but reverted to the first iteration at later races.
Kit includes resin and white metal castings, decals for the 1999 season championship-winning car and more.
