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?

I haven’t worked with cameraman Brian in some time. After Brian’s mom passed away, he had a bunch of other work that kept him from filming with me. He also suffered a serious injury to his left arm. All of this conspired to keep him out of pocket for the past 3 months.

In the last ETCG1 video I asked what you think I should do with the GSR. I got a TON of responses. It seems there's a lot of interest in this car. The suggestions ranged from keep it stock, to full on build. Watch the video and you'll find out what I decided to do.

I just put new tires on the GSR and I love it more than ever. In fact, the tires were the last thing that was on my 'wish list' for the car. Now that it's 'complete' and I'm driving it, I'm starting to think about the next steps I want to take with it.

Not only is cameraman Brian my part time cameraman, he's also a good friend of mine. One day we were talking about his experiences working with me on EricTheCarGuy videos and this topic came up. I thought it would make a nice ETCG1 video.

Compact spare tires have their uses and can get you out of a jam, but they're not meant to be a replacement for regular tires.
