  1. Cybertruck Quad-Motor & Crab Walk Feature Announced by Elon Musk

    This is an incorrect statement. It was the Model S Plaid + that was stated to have "520 miles, 1100-HP, with the new 4680 Batteries" (Car & Driver, Oct. 2nd, 2020). Edit: In checking the Tesla website today, Model S Plaid (not +) is rated at EPA of 348 miles (21") and 396 w/19". Not sure how...
  2. Removable Roof Option

    I would say yes, absolutely, put your deposit down now, configure as you prefer today, and then when you get closer to building for your production date, hopefully, the removable top is an option and you'll be all set.
  3. Cybertruck Quad-Motor & Crab Walk Feature Announced by Elon Musk

    I maybe a one off, but I have an early (Dec 2018 R1T) reservation which will be my wife’s and a very early Tri-Motor (maybe quad now) reservation. I can see having both of them. Time will tell, but final product should be pretty cool.
  4. Confident RIVN Price Prediction and why I purchased more today

    Next week will be interesting as Rivian's quiet period will end on Dec. 4th.
  5. Max Pack holders: tell me your thoughts

    Any guesses of what the Max Pack final form will look like in size and EPA mileage? If you recall, Rivian at the LA Auto show suggested the Max would have ~440 miles of range with 12 modules, 9 modules in the 105 & 135 packs. Then, sometime last year I saw the Max would only be 11 modules...
  6. New CarPlay Support Email?

    I’m just quoting what he shared on Instagram
  7. New CarPlay Support Email?

    I’m pretty sure he said they were using ABRP for maps and charging. What does this say about Rivian’s changing maps?
  8. Is this Tesla's attempt at taking a shot at Rivian ?

    Rivian has stolen/copied much already from Tesla, but I think this is more as others have stated, Tesla continuing to add value for their customers.
  9. R1T Towing Range Sneak Peek — 44 Miles of Predicted Range with 37% Battery Remaining

    It does seem like the R1T is a very heavy vehicle….definitely built by engineers not bean counters. The body in white looks to have a lot of Aluminum for lite weight, but that skateboard looks really beefy. As a comparison though not same class, a Tesla Model S Plaid weights ~4,800 lbs with...
  10. R1T Towing Range Sneak Peek — 44 Miles of Predicted Range with 37% Battery Remaining

    I’ve messaged Gideon.? That is towing with the R1T cross country…he is traveling way to fast, sometimes at 80 mph and not going low enough SOC. Much of the time he pulls in at almost 30% SOC which in my opinion is way to high and thus he’s seeing slower/long changing times.
  11. R1T Towing Range Sneak Peek — 44 Miles of Predicted Range with 37% Battery Remaining

    I had for a long time a Max pack in my configuration, I’ve since switched to Large and will see if I change back once Rivian provides actual specs and timing on the Max Pack. Here’s my speculation on what Rivian may do with the Max pack and payload rating as I’ve asked Rivian on many occasions...
  12. R1T Towing Range Sneak Peek — 44 Miles of Predicted Range with 37% Battery Remaining

    That sounds about right. 314 miles - 15% for 20” A/T - 10% speed/weather/ 2 for towing = 120 miles Max pack may only improve to maybe ~ 156 miles.
  13. Max Pack holders: tell me your thoughts

    Correct...it is faulty logic...I was looking for a better/more detailed response from Rivian which I have now received. Just as you read it, they felt the need to clarify.
  14. Max Pack holders: tell me your thoughts

    In corresponding with CS, I don't think the Max pack will be delayed, at least they are telling me if I have a Max pack configured, moving to a Large pack will not change my timing or get me an R1T any earlier.
  15. Max Pack holders: tell me your thoughts

    To Max or not? I checked back with Rivian as I have on several occasions to see if they had any new information to share: In building my original Configuration, I passed on the LE which now may or may not have been the best decision in my specific case. So I emailed CS and asked as they have...
  16. Max Pack holders: tell me your thoughts

    Great question, to Max or not? I guess I'm kicking myself now for not picking the LE when I could have. So I originally went with the Max Pack. As I've had way to much time to think about this and play with ABRP on 135 vs 180 kWh, I would guess 98% of the time, as the R1T will be my wife's DD...
  17. Rivians approach to model year: traditional or iterative (Tesla-like)?

    It will be interesting to see how Rivian adapts and grows over time and what their build culture becomes. But I think, to adapt say as quickly as say Tesla does, and make changes on a running line, you have to have a automated method to test/certify the car. I am not expert at this, but...
  18. New delivery window

    Absolutely a real concern, but if you say this out loud you get hate mail.
