Fast N’ Loud and Shifting Gears with Aaron Kaufman 

Everyone recognizes Aaron Kaufman as the master mechanic, who helped increase the popularity of  Discovery show, Fast N’ Loud. He, along with the Dallas-based Gas Monkey Garage (on which the show is based) owner, Richard Rawlings, took car wrenching into a whole new level.

While their collaboration was a perfect example of “bromance,” Aaron’s decision to leave GMG in 2016 came as a shocker to fans. Fans simply know that the reason behind his departure from GMG was to start his own business. But, that is not the only reason. In addition to his differing version with Richard Rawlings, the strict deadlines and cars at GMG lacked his interest. He eventually left for good in 2016.

Now, he has his show, Shifting Gears, based on his own fabrication company, Arclight Fab, which supplies aftermarket components for the Ford F-100 pickups.
