  1. Australia - And other exports

    Interesting article in the murdoch press today, with the Hyundai Ioniq5 impressing the reviewer - parts of this car is pretty sweet, but its not R1T or R1S. That said, the reviewer mentioned that they've got the option of an adaptor that plugs into the charge port, that supplied 3.6kw (ie a 240v...
  2. Launch Green R1T delivered!

    To me the spacing issue could be one of two things - The curve of the bonnet needs refining - look along the bonnet/fender gap the entire length and see if it increase or decreases proportionately - The bonnet damper is usually adjustable in most cars, screw it counterclockwise and you can lower...
  3. Vehicle Life Expectancy

    With any luck, all of the opening and closing components will have their open/close cycles actually registered within the ECU/BCU and so when they start failing, Rivian will have a great selection of statistics to draw estimates from.
  4. R1T being tested for North American Car & Truck (NACTOY) of the Year - Juror Impressions

    I've no doubt the front and rear steering systems are equally as robust in terms of their fabrication, however as skyote points out, its just more stuff that can break...
  5. R1T being tested for North American Car & Truck (NACTOY) of the Year - Juror Impressions

    He's pissed that he gets to ride and test an R1T 2 years before I will? Sense of entitlement much? Whatever compay...
  6. R1T being tested for North American Car & Truck (NACTOY) of the Year - Juror Impressions

    I wonder if the rear drivetrain of the Hummer would be less rugged than a fixed steering option in the long run, and if so, what damage would be the most likely, and which parts would need replacing. Crab walk is cool, but WRT acceleration, this is possibly something that is set inside the ECU...
  7. Australia - And other exports

    Can't argue with that. Lets just say we all deserve better leadership at this time. Especially when it comes to renewables and climate change
  8. Australia - And other exports

    Yeah I hear you. Scotty is gone next election (hopefully), and with him all the Cockatoo's from QLD (Nats). Good thing is, Australia is already the largest producer of lithium in the world - unfortunately we don't refine it. That said, there are plans to build refineries, apparently. That said...
  9. Australia - And other exports

    You're forgetting a huge chunk of Asia (and some of Africa) https://cdnimages.rhinocarhire.com/Blog-Images/Blog-2017/WebP/Countries-Drive-Left-or-Right.webp
  10. Australia - And other exports

    I've seen the same articles. Nothing surprising really, though it would be awesome if we could build them here it Oz. It would make sense to have a dedicated plant for RHD vehicles, and we have a lot of rare earth minerals. Now, if we can refine the Lithium and Cobalt and other minerals...
  11. What Will Be The First Song You Play In Your New Rivian?

    My song? "Good Enough" by Van Halen and everything else on 5150!
  12. Max output from the 110v plugs in the bed

    1500w is good. But not really great. Every wall plug we have here in Oz is 240v/10amp for a total of 2400w, or 240v/15amp for 3600w. Tradies with powertools might want the 15 amp connector for welders or some other high current application. 10 amp would be a safe figure to aim for so the car can...
  13. Marketing Research: Why did YOU choose Rivian?

    Since all markets are different, I'll speak to myself and my geographic location (Adelaide, South Australia) Q1) Remembering back, how did you FIRST become aware of Rivian and when? Reveal around 3 years ago when the first stock photos came out, I liked the look of it and was intrigued. Q2) If...
  14. Badge appreciation thread

    Have to agree with you! The gold letters on white look great. Too bad I'm gonna go for Forest Green and Black 20's AT's, the badging doesn't look as cool
  15. Badge appreciation thread

    I debadge my cars too. Removed every badge off my Skyline and kept only the GTR logo on the boot. I'll probably remove the Rivian badges on the side and R1T on the rear, but keep the bonnet badge. Bit surprised they have a thick badge on the side that sticks out. Little things like that make a...
  16. 🔋 Official EPA Range and MPGe Numbers for R1T & R1S

    Cool - do we have any info on what rubber/compound they'd be using? M/T's or Geolandars or something similar? I have G016's on my forester and they're pretty decent for city driving but I can see that big knobbly tyres would be less efficient...
  17. 🔋 Official EPA Range and MPGe Numbers for R1T & R1S

    Yeah that top line really hurt me in the feelz I wonder if they had *different* 20" rims that the range could be extended? Lighter materials for the rim such as magnesium or titanium (I've used both before, they're great but super expensive compared to alloys or steelies). Or perhaps a different...
  18. Offroad package or dark AT wheels

    For $3500 USD, I wouldn't buy those rims. They look nice but the standard AT's can probably be powdercoated black for $200. Off-road kit would give you more flexibility in the long run.
  19. Motor Trend Review: The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven

    I too would prefer a solid roof. Electrochromatic as an option.
  20. Motor Trend Review: The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven

    Absolutely agree with this. Even something basic like volume control is better with a knob instead of a touchscreen. You want to be able to do a few things without taking your eyes off the road and having to focus on a screen. I would want to see a volume knob or at minimum tactile up/down...
