    YouTube Certified Mechanics
    ETCG1



    Published on Dec 26, 2016
    We've all seen these people in the comments. They come right out of the gate insisting they know something when in truth, they have little to no experience with the subject they claim to be an expert about.

    The YouTube certified contingent can be a real PITA. But here's where I struggle. I feel in some small way I'm part of the problem.

    My intention has always been to help empower my viewers to do their own repairs. I fear that in some ways I'm also enabling the YouTube certified contingent. That is not my intention.

    Either way, I appreciate it when you watch my videos, repair or otherwise. I hope you keep doing it. Just please don't consider yourself an expert just because you watched my videos. Truth be told, I'm pretty ignorant about a lot of things myself and I have a lot to learn yet.

    Intro music by Eric Cook "ETCG1 Intro".

    Thanks for watching!

    Super Street FF Battle 8! - Tuner Battle Week 2016 Ep. 1
    Motor Trend Channel



    Published on Dec 26, 2016
    Once considered econo-boxes and vehicles suited only for commuting, front-wheel drive cars and technology have come a long way, and FF Battle Presented By Continental Tire puts that progress on display in a time attack format. Anyone who thinks they have a fast front wheel-drive, front engine (FF) car was invited to apply, and the editors at Super Street magazine narrowed down the field to some of the finest front drives in the scene. This year’s single-day time trials put competitors on the 1.6-mile, 14-turn road course at Streets of Willow Springs and outfitted each in a set of Continental’s new Ultra High Performance (UHP) ExtremeContact Sport tires. In a field stacked with Honda Civics, Acura Integras, and one Ford Focus ST, find out which FF rose to the top!

    [My Next Car] McLaren 12C Test Drive
    Seen Through Glass



    Published on Dec 26, 2016
    Subscribe to STG: http://bitly.com/SubToSTG

    For the latest test drive as part of the My Next Car series, Tony and I head up to John Holland Cars to check out their McLaren 12C. We were unaware that the car in question had actually been tuned to 750hp and had an after market exhaust on it but we were still very excited to try out the car. Incredibly, John Holland also had a McLaren 570S in stock - a car which I am obsessed by. It was interesting to see the back to back visual comparisons.

    Thanks to Supercar Driver for helping to arrange the day.

    My Aston Martin GT8 is READY! [Road to GT8 Episode 08]
    Shmee150



    Published on Dec 27, 2016
    The final inspection has been completed! With huge thanks to Dr Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, we can join the final inspection process for the car and the symbolic moment the wings badges are installed and it becomes a real Aston Martin.

    We've followed this process throughout, from joining at the start when the body shell entered the paint shop to turn Cobalt Blue, to the production line for the powertrain marriage and final trim stages before rolling off and the very first start of the engine and testing before coming back now to see it being signed off and ready to head on towards the dealer and hit the road.

    I cannot thank Dr Palmer and the entire team who have been involved in both my experience behind the scenes with the building of my Aston Martin Vantage GT8 enough for both the amazing opportunities on a personal level but also being able to share this content with you in so much detail. I truly hope you've enjoying seeing such a personal look inside a supercar factory and what goes into making such a fine vehicle.

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    2016 Super Street Show Car Shootout! - Tuner Battle Week 2016 Ep. 2
    Motor Trend Channel



    Published on Dec 27, 2016
    The Show Car Shootout challenges some of the sharpest and most pampered trailer queen tuner cars to compete on the road course and dynamometer. This year’s call for entries netted everything from a V-8-engine swapped BMW 135i to multiple Honda S2000s and Mitsubishi EVO 10s, to classic iconic machinery like an original Acura NSX and JDM Nissan R32 Skyline GT-R. All ran a set of Continental’s new Ultra High Performance (UHP) ExtremeContact Sport tires to tackle Streets of Willow Springs’ 1.6-mile, 14-turn circuit and the wind tunnel dyno at World Motorsports over the course of two days. Which car had all the right stuff? Which one could walk he walk, not just talk the talk? You’ll have to watch and see.

    Larry and Cheryl put on another fantastic event at their lovely ranch. The food was really great, as well as the people and cars. At last count 84 cars showed up. They pulled a good one on yours truly, by presenting me with a video man award. Everyone thanked Larry and Cheryl for a wonderful time. It’s one of the highlight's of my time in Florida.

    This is our first visit to the Inverness FL. monthly cruise, for this season. This is one of our favorites. The town square is beautiful with plenty of fine eateries. There were quite a few cars that I haven't seen before, and the weather was perfect.

    2016 Super Lap Battle x Global Time Attack! - Tuner Battle Week 2016 Ep. 5
    Motor Trend Channel



    Published on Dec 30, 2016
    This is the pinnacle of American time attack. The granddaddy, the legend, the one people from all over come to participate in - this is Super Lap Battle, run side by side with Global Time Attack's final round of 2016. While Buttonwillow Raceway's clockwise 13 record didn't fall this year, the competition was intense, especially in Unlimited FWD Class where the existing high mark was reset by Will Au-Yeung in the Vibrant/PZ Tuning Civic Coupe. In fact, action was heated in most classes, from the entry-level Enthusiast groups to the no-holds-barred Unlimited category, featuring cars as varied as the WRX, S2000, Cayman, Mustang, Viper – even a Lamborghini Huracan! And so many others! Relive all the action from North America’s biggest time attack!

    How To Fabricate Parking Brake Cables #FairmontProject
    EricTheCarGuy



    Published on Dec 30, 2016
    This was one of my favorite parts of the #FairmontProject so far, fabricating the parking brake cables. It may not seem glamours, but when you build a car from scratch, everything that you put into it becomes special. Especially if it's a useful think like a parking brake.

    When I purchased my 5 lug conversion kit and brake kit, it came with a set of parking brake cables that were suppose to work with the new brakes. Thing is it was set up for a fox body mustang, not a Fairmont. I had to get a little creative if I wanted a parking brake.

    Please don't be too hard on me about my welds in this video. I was still learning. I was also having some issues with the welder that I mention in the video. I leave this kind of thing in my videos because I know it's the type of thing you might run into with your projects as well. I may not look as good as a result, but at least you'll have good information on how to handle the same issues if you run into them.

    MOTIVATION FOR THE NEW MECHANICS. HOW TO BECOME A PROFICIENT MECHANIC
    oldskool funk



    Published on Mar 5, 2014
    This is a tutorial to help inspire those who are considering being an Automotive Mechanic/ Technician in the Automotive Industry. I explain the way I did it and what it takes to become a Proficient and Competent Mechanic. It will take hard work, determination and passion in order for the new Mechanic to pave his/her way through the Automotive trade. I strongly emphasize going to school ( Automotive Technology School), Strong thorough study in Diagnostics, Electronics, Computerized Engine Controls, learning from the Wrecking Yard (to get hands on) and learning from the Oldskool Mechanics/Technicians. Chase your dreams and don't let any one kill your ambition or will to succeed in anything you want to do. The choice is yours, TAKE MASSIVE ACTION AND BE FEARLESS. With GOD (JESUS CHRIST) all things are possible.
