The Dreaded Subaru Head Gasket Issue
Non turbo 4 cylinder applications all have head gasket issues, you've heard this before, most of you know this, and yes its a result of a bad/faulty design with the gasket.The factory gaskets have a coating that deteriorates over time (typically between 80-120k miles. That range is dependent on if you've run the SOA mandatory coolant conditioner, which is designed to get you past that 100k mile hump).

For those that didn't see...we will now be offering pinned mains on cases as an option on bigger builds. This isn't something that is necessary for everyone but anyone over 400whp and 25psi of boost, its something that should at least be considered.

Palmer Sanderson's  S13
This weekend was the inaugural event of the Sonoma Drift Series.  It's a 4 race series that will put amateur drivers to the test on a course that is both power inspired as well as technical.  Having a well rounded car and being a smooth driver is paramount.  The title winner at the end of the series gets to walk away with $3,000 cash!  LIC Motorsports sponsored driver Palmer Sanderson was in attendance with his 1993 240sx (S13) and gave us an event recap on how his weekend went.

We thought it would be fun to let you guys in on the making of the LIC Motorsports Adj. Idlers.  Often times one never really thinks just how something is made, albeit that it never crosses one's mind, too busy to even think about it, and/or just downright don't even care.  Well we know some do care and would be interested; so this article is for you!   The chronology is like many other designed parts...which has a chain of events that must occur

From Modified Magazine... Infineon Raceway, formerly known as Sears Point, is one of the more dramatic racing circuits in America. As much as this track’s name makes us want to dress up like Buzz Lightyear and shout, “To Infineon and beyond!” the track itself makes us want to throw on our racing shoes and do our best Gary Sheehan impression around this twisty masterpiece carved into the hillside terrain of Sonoma’s wine country.

LIC Motorsports Get LICd Apparel Has Arrived!
The LIC Motorsports "Get LIC'd" Hanes Beefy-T Tagless shirts offer greater durability and less shrinkage than you'll get with ordinary tees.  To make it even better its has your favorite peformance shops logo and slogan on it.  These are offered in 2 colors (Black and Grey).  In addition a long sleeve is available in black as well.  Be sure to get them while they are in stock, as LIC is known for never repeating the same design twice...so once they are sold out, thats it!
