Lola had made its first appearance at the Indianapolis 500 in 1965 with pair of T80 race cars. Due to the late completion of the cars, testing was insufficient and therefore both cars had number of problems in the race. Drivers Al Unser and Bud Tingelstad both complained particularly about the handling problem in the corner. It was later discovered that a flaw in the suspension geometry caused the car to be “heavy” when cornering. Learning from the previous year, Lola made sure the new T90 was ready in plenty of time before the 1966 race.
