Why did Aaron Kaufman leave Fast N' Loud?

Speaking to Art of Gears’ Martin Feigen, Kaufman revealed the reason behind his shocking exit from the popular show. Kaufman explained, “...I wanted to build cars that were that big or bigger, and then TV needed cars that were much smaller than that. On top of that there were some growing personal issues and professional differences of opinions and so I decided the time had come and I could see the fork in front of me.”

GM will never be the same without you Aaron, the builds won't have any of the technical know-how... Just like OCC without the son, it went dooooown hill no class left... This will lose more than half of the viewers. Where are you going to start your own show?
