About ETCG1

ETCG1 round Logo 250I started the ETCG1 channel about a year or so after starting the EricTheCarGuy channel.  I did this for a couple of reasons.  The first is that I needed a place where I could post 'non-repair' videos that related to EricTheCarGuy, it became apparent early on that my audience on EricTheCarGuy were interested in repair videos only so to accommodate them and fill the need for video topics outside of repair ETCG1 was born.  The second reason is that it became apparent that many viewers had questions about becoming professional technicians and they wanted to learn what it was like to work in the field, they also seemed interested in my opinions and experiences that developed while working as a technician.  ETCG1 has become something of a 'soapbox' for me to share these thoughts and ideas and it gives me the opportunity to respond to some of the questions I get about the auto repair industry.  ETCG1 is also a place where you can learn a little more about what it is to be and work as EricTheCarGuy, best job in the world if you asked me.  Why not watch a few videos and let me know what YOU think?

The Pros and Cons of Electric VEhicles

Not long ago, I posted this video about how electric vehicles might effect your neighborhood mechanic. I thought I would make this video in response to those comments sharing my views on electric vehicles.

Looking Back at 2017 FairmontProject ETCG1

Some love it, some hate it, but the #FairmontProject is a part of me and what I've done. In this video I talk about my progress with the car in 2017, and also answer to some of the things I misspoke about in my last video about "Traction vs Power".

Is Traction More Important Than Power

A few weeks ago I posted a video, "How Old Are Your Tires?". I posted that video because I had recently gone to the drag strip and didn't do very well. I couldn't get any traction and therefore had some very pathetic track times.

Will Electric Vehicles Put Your Neighborhood Mechanic Out of Business

The article forecasts gloom and doom for the neighborhood mechanic. Perhaps on some level they're right, but I like to remain optimistic. In fact, a smart person would consider this and possibly build a neighborhood shop around electric vehicle/hybrid service.
