Blitz north america

Whatever happened to them? Couldn't pull up any information on them and I see last traces of blitz-na.com or any posts by their rep on here was in 2016. Did they completely pull out of the north american market?

I have no idea. If I had to guess, the price point was not as competitive when buying against other brands like HKS or GReddy.

There aren't many vendors retailing Blitz in North America either. One of the last was FRSport, but their company seems to be undergoing some turmoil right now.

Can still get Blitz imported from Japan though. Some select vendors selling Blitz here and there (Vivid Racing for example), but parts can certainly be a challenge to find

They def still are making a slew of parts for the twins going by their japan website. I was just wondering if their north american venture has completely folded and they packed up and left this continent to focus on their domestic side. Was really hoping that the site was just temporarily down but seeing as there's been zero posts or news about blitz-na for years i suspected they left :\

I remember seeing Blitz everywhere in the early 2000s. Them, HKS, and Greddy.
