It’s always refreshing to me to see productivity in it’s most energetic form. I think their are many positive effects to being constructive and it seems to me that it is overlooked quite often. It’s an aspect of life that adds a great deal of meaning to what we choose to pursue. Instinctively knowing the difference between being busy and being productive gives us the ability to progress through life much more efficiently; ultimately allowing us to experience more, and get the most out of our time. Ryo Kaneko is a man who knows the benefits of productive living, and it shows through his work on the circuit.
To this day, the ‘Encounter’ post I did on the Yellow Factory EG6 at last year’s Tokyo Auto Salon has been the most popular post on this site with over 137 shares. I’m not sure what it was about it, but everyone seems to like the aggressive, all-out, time-attack style. I like it simply because it’s consistently one of the fastest Honda’s at the track! As of last year, the YF’s EG6 best time was a 1’01.38 – impressive right? Well at this particular event, it managed a time of 1’00.345; crushing it’s old time by over a second! A hero among the Honda community. Click past the break for more shots, compliments of JDM Clips.
I think that this may have been the most overlooked car at the Salon; no exaggeration. I actually did a double take when I saw this because I couldn’t believe an EG6 was at Auto Salon in the year 2011. Aside from the actual Honda booth, finding a tuned Honda (other than a CR-Z) at this years Salon was like finding a needle in a haystack; if the hay were made out of Nissans and Toyotas. After drifting blew up, the market obviously gravitated toward S-Chassis’ and the like. RWD engulfed Honda’s FWD prior dominance and left them to the devoted few. After I came to my senses I decided that I needed to spend a few moments with this thing. Check out more past the break.
