    FS: Ex Champ CSP Car (Kubo's car) 

    It is with a very heavy heart that I post this...  But I think the timing is just going to work out where selling the car is going to be the better decision right now.  

    1991 Ex National Champion CSP car.  This was Tom Kubo's car up until last year.  I bought it last fall and have been slowing getting it updated, improved, and cleaned up this season.  The car is FAST.  Probably the best car I've ever driven at autocross.  I really don't want to sell it but my family is looking at some new housing options as well as a few other changes that may see my storage/garage space get greatly reduced.  So I'm mulling over perhaps letting someone else take this thing to the next level.  Its all there, just needs someone who can store it and drive it to its ability.  I have had multiple great showings with the car and I don't want to let it go but it may serve someone else in the near future while I try to get all of my house sale, finding a new house, buying a house, moving, etc. all figured out.  I have also completely detailed it, steam cleaned every surface, as well as steam cleaned the engine. 

    I have spent a considerable amount of time and money getting the car improved and dialed in even more I don't want to just let it sit while housing changes may take longer than I am forecasting, etc. I focused on all the Preventative maintenance as well as reliability upgrades. 

    I have a custom built open deck tilt trailer that can go with the car as well if the buyer so wants.  It was custom built for a CSP miata, I completely tore it down last year, rewired it with multiple weather proof junction boxes, all new wiring, all new LED lights, refinished the wood deck, repainted the frame etc. It is a GREAT trailer.  

    The car is ready to go, just slap some new A7's on it and dump some E85 and then go win.  

    The only bad thing about the car, I tinted it myself, the tint is super not good.  I only put it on to try to cut down on the heat as it sits with the windows up and top on in the sun.  It will probably peel off with minimal effort, but it is really the only thing on the car that isn't tip top. Aside from trying to race it on the old clutch for the first time (it didn't move under its own power which is why it has a new clutch) the car has never broken at an event.  It will have a hiccup here or there, but tighten a bolt or top off the e85 and its back to fighting form, never had to park it for the day at an event due to failure.  

    The car is right under 2,000 lbs. I vacuumed at least 10lbs of gravel, bolts, fasteners, nuts, leaves, time slips, etc when I tore the old interior out. 

    All fluids have been changed with redline stuff

    All new plugs, filters, new oem diff mount, spacers, bolts (had a mount crack so I just replaced everything)

    The seats are all carbon fiber.

    I'll just point out that my ES Miata won Nats this year on my setup, so while I'm not the fastest driver I can do some very decent setup. This car is there, put in E85 and win.
