    Rivian R1T OWNERS MANUAL Guide is here! 📒

    I think it's just a simple safety issue. I was adjusting my seat one day while driving and the switch stuck on, moving all the way back to where I could only reach the wheel with my fingertips. Of course when I tried to lean forward quickly the seatbelt locked. Grrr.

    TFL snubbed by Rivian: video

    100x THIS. TFL, and many other amateur operations, frequently shows their amateurishness. They don't bother to research their subject before espousing their "expertise", making up numbers to keep their chitter chatter flowing, seeming to think they are all late night radio jocks that have to...

    Rivian R1T first crash 😱

    Long ago I was teaching someone to drive. We were on a fairly empty two-lane road in Southern California. A pickup came toward us and drifted into our lane. My student yanked the wheel to the right, floored the gas as we ran off the road, overcorrected to the left, ran across the road...

    Rear Seat - cargo space/flat floor in the future?

    Carbon-silicon batteries have shown a capacity four times as much as lithium-ion, and has been under research for about five years, but seems to always remain about five years away. 1000 mile range would be rather nice, but that tech remains a reach.
