Eiji Kubo (久保 英次 Kubo Eiji) is the Chief Mechanic of Sidewinder.

History[edit | edit source]

Prior to the beginning of Project D's Kanagawa Expedition, Eiji Kubo was hired by Go Hojo to be the chief mechanic of his team, Sidewinder. Kubo and Hojo put into motion the four lines of defense, a series of four Kanagawa based teams, Team 246, Racing Team Katagiri Street Version, Team Spiral, and Sidewinder, in order to protect Kanagawa's reputation as the holy land for street racing, and to beat Project D, ending their crusade across Kanto. Sidewinder would use each of the previous teams to gather information about Project D's drivers, in order to prepare themselves to face them.

Kubo and Go watch the battles between Project D and Team 246. The two exchange predictions of how the race will go. Mid way through the race, Kubo comments that drivers of Evos (such as Kobayakawa) always take faith that their car is the best on the streets, due to their rally heritage. He says that they aren't technically wrong, as they will do you good, but their four-wheel drive isnt all it's cracked up to be on the mountain roads. Kubo predicts the race will only last one round, and he is proven correct when Keisuke Takahashi beats Kobayakawa, leaving him seven seconds behind him.
