Calling All NA/NB Miata Owners
PIC is always looking to expand our offerings to new platforms and markets, and one car in particular has been on our radar since day one but has nevertheless remained elusive.
The NA/NB generation Miatas are an ideal car to develop new PIC products for, products which will continue to deliver exceptional durability and performance for the everyday driver/racer. We are excited at the prospect of being able to release just such a product soon, but are actively seeking feedback and opinions from target users (if you're here and reading this, that is likely you).
Details are necessarily guarded at this point about what the product is and details on the roll-out, but PIC is looking to work with a select few individuals who are willing to commit a small amount of time and constructive criticism to the fine tuning process. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
Welcome Back, SpeedTrapp Consulting
After an unexplained absence, we welcome SpeedTrapp Consulting back to our website's list of Authorized Dealers. To clarify, STC had never been removed from our list of AD's, but their information disappeared from our website due to some technical error. Nevertheless, they are back now and can be found here along with all the other AD's as usual.

PIC and Suja1 Visit Autobahn Country Club
We spent the day with the Suja1 team at Autobahn Country Club in Joliet. Here are a few photos.

Eddie took this opportunity to shake down his new Select R+ setup before revisiting Mid-Ohio the following weekend.
June 12th, 2012
There will be some major changes coming to the PIC lineup in the next few months, beginning with a trimming down of our product offerings. With a focus on satisfying the needs of our core customers while also simplifying the buying process, we've decided to only produce and stock two coilover setups moving forward - the Select P2's and the Select R3's for the most common 92-00 Civic Chassis and the 94-01 Integra chassis. The narrow-body and shortened-mount 88-91 Civic and 90-93 Integra will no longer be offered, and neither will any of the fixed-damping Apex coilovers. Note, the JDM-type (and USDM ITR) rear lower mounts will still be available for those with eyelet-style rear lower control arms.
This is a major departure from our history of providing a setup for almost any type of performance usage, but a desire to focus on new products and ensure that we're constantly improving our existing products necessitated a narrowing down of the product line. Changes to the website and inventory levels will soon reflect the new product offerings.
April 16th, 2012
Our next batch of Honda Coilovers and Lower Control Arms are going into production and should be in stock and ready to ship by the end of May/early June.
Note that 96-00 Civic LCA's, all PIC/Suja 1 Motoring Bushing Kits, and a limited number of Select Coilovers remain in stock. Contact us or your local Authorized Dealer to confirm availability.
Congratulations to Egidijus Sadauskas - NASA Great Lakes @ Mid Ohio - April 14th and 15th
Egidijus (Eddie) Sadauskas gets his 2012 NASA Great Lakes season off to a start with not only a 1st place finish in this past Sunday's Honda Challenge race, but also some of the fastest lap times posted in his Lightning run group on both days.

This photo is not of this past weekend, that is not Mid-Ohio, and the car is now probably much dirtier but has many more Winner stickers on it. But that is Egidijus, and that is his #70 H2 car, campaigned with great support this season by Suja 1 Motoring and on PIC Select R3's. We're all looking forward to a season full of more wins and fun racing. But mostly wins. And probably lots of beer.

Contacting PIC - March through April
We have been travelling and will continue to be on the road through all of March, and into early April. Our voice mail has filled up and the best way to contact us is via email - Sales@PICPerformance.com. Orders are being processed with the least amount of disruption possible but there may be some small delays.
92-95 Civic / 94-01 Integra LCA's
As you may have noticed or been told, we are completely out of stock on the LCA's for these applications. When the ETA of the replacement stock is confirmed, we'll update it here on the site. All replacement stock will be in the brushed aluminum finish of the last batch of LCA's, and we'll no longer be manufacturing the crinkle-gold finish LCA's. We remain fully stocked on the 96-00 Civic LCA's.

PIC Performance - Yes, We Are Open
To the contrary of one strange and unfounded rumor that has been making the rounds recently, PIC Performance is indeed still in business, still supporting our products, warranties, and our Authorized Dealers. If a particular vendor advertises that they carry PIC products and you do not see their name on our page of Authorized Dealers, there is a chance that we're simply in the process of having them added, so call us directly with any doubts.
Or, they may just be a deadbeat vendor who owes PIC money and has been cut-off pending collectin of past dues. Which is more likely the case with the source of this nasty, but untrue, rumor.

US Authorized Dealers
PIC's principles in selecting Authorized Dealers has not changed since we added our first - we seek partners who share our commitment to the sport and to the customer, our dedication to providing quality components and service, and our levels of professionalism and knowledge when it comes to our area's of expertise. Over the years, we've met many such partners but this is a difficult industry and unfortunately not all who we partner with can remain without compromising some of those principles.
To ensure that our customers are consistently being treated with the highest degree of professional service and fairness, we occasionally must review our Authorized Dealers and evaluate their suitability to remain a partner of ours. In the recent review, we've eliminated some AD's who no longer fit the criteria. Those who remain are companies who are companies that have been and continue to be truly dedicated to supporting the sport and their customers, who consistently provide not only top notch products, but also expert education and consultation. Those Authorized Dealers can always be found here: Authorized Dealers.

Purchases Made Through Unauthorized Dealers
Recently we've come across some cases of customers making purchases of PIC Performance products from unauthorized vendors, including various part websites. Please note that if you choose to purchase PIC Performance products from a vendor that is NOT listed on our page of Authorized Dealers, found here, then you do so at your own risk. This includes voiding of any warranty through PIC Performance for future claims, lack of manufacturer support, and delays/cancellation of order fulfillment. PIC Performance supports and partners with those in the community who share our ideals not only on business ethics, but also performance modification and the sport itself, and that is reflected in our list of Authorized Dealers.
We would also like to take this opportunity to allow those vendors who's business and information do not show up on our list of Authorized Dealers but feel they should to contact us directly to resolve this.

Public Service Announcement - The Sales@PICPerformance.com email address has been temporarily disabled while we address some email issues. In the meantime, please contact Info@PICPerformance.com, as that email address will be constantly monitored. Thanks - PIC Performance team.
Coilover Inventory Re-stocked
PIC's inventory has finally been replenished, and thanks to those customers and partners of ours who have patiently waited for new stock to arrive. Our Honda Coilovers are now available again in most popular sprnig rate combinations, as both Apex's and Selects. Keen-eyed customers will notice that we've reduced our selection of spring rates a bit, and this is a result of the analysis of several years of data to spot both performance trending and market preferences. Our coilover line-up has been streamlined to focus on key performance and usability needs, while still providing solutions to as many enthusiasts as possible.

Back in Stock - Standard and RR LCA's
PIC's Standard Hard Rubber LCA's are back in stock for both the 88-00 Civics and 94-01 Integras. For those who have been holding off an LCA upgrade for fear of low quality bushings and inconsistent levels of material, the wait is over. As always, PIC's LCA's feature our own take on the hard rubber formula - longer lasting and better performing when paired with other high-performance suspension components like stiffer springs and sticker tires, but with no noticeable compromise in ride quality when compared to OEM hard rubber.
In addition, our Race Ready LCA's are back in stock for the 88-95 Civics and 94-01 Integras. Featuring a striking new look but maintaing the same dimensions as stock, the RR LCA's will again sport PIC's in-house designed spherical bearings in the inboard and outboard locations, and polyurethane at the shock mount.

Re-stocking - Update
As many have noticed, PIC has been running low on products for several weeks now as we continue to cut back on inventory and consolidate our offerings. The good news is that our next batch of coilovers has finished production, have been shipped out from our factory and is now on the way over to our location here in Illinois. Estimated arrival is the end of next week 7/3, whereby we will give them a final inspection and then refresh our inventory.
As with last time, those that have shipments on backorder will have their orders filled first.

Happy New Year!
PIC Performance would like to thank all those who supported us and helped us grow through 2008, and wishes everyone the best for the upcoming year.
Obviously, the End of Season 2008 Sale is over, but considering the great popularity of our recently introduced Hard Rubber Bushing (HRB) kit, we've decided to extend the sale of this item for a bit longer.
The discount on the PIC Final Drive Sets has also been extended and will run until supplies run out.
Coinciding with our discounted HRB kits is the sale on our Honda Rear Lower Control Arm (LCA) sets for the 1992-2000 Civics and 1994-2001 Integras.

Product Release - PIC / Suja One Motoring Hard Rubber Bushing Kits
We are proud to announce the release of our Hard Rubber Bushing Kit, designed and produced in conjunction with Authorized Dealer Suja One Motoring. These hard rubber bushing kits are a direct replacement for OEM bushings, fitting into stock locations and using stock dimensions.
This rubber compound was designed specifically to withstand the increased loads found in cars modified for more grip, more power, and generally suited for more performance use. With a durometer rating of 85A, they offer a reduction in deflection over OEM bushings, while not being overly harsh for a street car, making them a great substitute for your old, worn out bushings when the times comes to change/upgrade.
Complete kits are available for 88-00 Civics, and 90-01 Integras. For more product details, click here or contact Suja One Motoring.
