    Best tire / wheel combo for deep snow.

    In California, winter arrives every year to the shock and dismay of Caltrans – a government-sanctioned racket, a disorganized sheet show of dullards with a hundred million dollar budget who treat an inch of snow or a gust of wind as an unprecedented and unsolvable problem that can only result in...

    Best tire / wheel combo for deep snow.

    I was impressed. I expected they'd do what all all-terrain tread patterns do: dig, but instead, they acted like a "real" snow tire: stayed sticky and soft overnight, didn't freeze solid, stayed "coated" in snow to create snow-to-snow traction and left a reassuring tread pattern (not slipping...

    Best tire / wheel combo for deep snow.

    I tend to agree. Towing a snowmobile trailer you either get winters or you use chains (or you futz around getting stuck.) I had a 6.0 diesel and the weight of it meant it didn't like deep snow (it would just sink down to the belly) and the solution was snow tires (all-terrain tires dig down for...

    Best tire / wheel combo for deep snow.

    fwiw. I had BFG K02s on an F-150 Hybrid during a heavy storm cycle (18 feet in December) with a ski cabin on a 16 degree road, the driveway is 20 degrees and there was fresh snow on a packed base covering asphalt and concrete with snow up the bumper of the Ford. I usually go to chains when the...

    "day one" of "not a good day" for $RIVN

    The blood-letting has slowed. The markets are closing out the week threatening to enter a bear market. $RIVN is suffering less than $TSLA and $F today.

    "day one" of "not a good day" for $RIVN

    Rivian has announced the R2 and R3 to join the R1, plus three sizes of the EDV (van) and some comments on static power equipment (presumably for home backup batteries) and recreational vehicles (boats and off-highway vehicles.) The price reflects the here and now of this quarter. I don't think...

    "day one" of "not a good day" for $RIVN

    Another session of $RIVN exhibiting unfavorable price behavior. A secular rally, the S&P up 60, $TSLA up, $RIVN down. Some thoughts: There's no way of knowing the "why" – all we can know is the fact: there are sellers below $70. As far as I know, there's no news (good or bad) and that's a...

    "day one" of "not a good day" for $RIVN

    You mean $F or $RIVN? Just kidding! : )

    "day one" of "not a good day" for $RIVN

    Today was a gruesome reality check. The S&P threw away 100 point and $TSLA sniffled but did not flinch while $RIVN took a punch on the chin like it was made out of glass. I fail to see how or who exists to sell $RIVN below $75 … how did such a volume of sellers even exist? Were there so many...

    GEAR TUNNEL & PETS -- SAFE? Why or why not??

    Yep. A beloved family member pet is a sharp-boned projectile with a collision incident speed of 100+ mph. My doggo will thrash about when the harness goes into the seat buckle sometimes (she's still a puppy at 10 months) then eventually relax (2-3 minutes and the rest of the trip is fine. It's a...

    Article: Tesla's Cybertruck May Not Actually Happen

    Rivian's team better be doing more than dreaming. I expect they have a master plan, just like Tesla 15 years ago. With $TSLA at $1.1 trillion, and $RIVN at $0.078 trillion : ) … both companies have wildly inflated market caps that are all but impossible to justify by building cars any time soon...

    Article: Tesla's Cybertruck May Not Actually Happen

    Tesla doesn't want to build the Cybertruck because: 1) they don't know how to build the truck or the 4680 2) the Supercharger network is already overcrowded Tesla / Musk said they don't want to build the truck before they build the Y (starting soon in Texas) and their next vehicle (smaller...

    Article: Tesla's Cybertruck May Not Actually Happen

    The thestreet.com … just another garbage "finance" site. As for the ClusterTruck ever happening, I'd say 100% it will happen, but who knows what or when.

    R1T Featured in Vision Marine Technologies Promo Video

    I guess they have friends or some percolating business with Rivian or Rivian's marketing company. Cool to see the R1T out there – it will be a prize for all the movies and series that want to appeal to the Rivian demographic. But also … fire that marketing company. What a dog's breakfast of a...

    The "news" did not change the price of $RIVN.

    I can't remember the last time I read more than the first sentence of a Seeking Alpha or Motley Fool article. I assume they're both "long con" sites. I trade options using statistical models. I'm focused on futures, but the stocks I trade are chosen for liquidity and their performance in my...

    The "news" did not change the price of $RIVN.

    I see, the white line is a drawing, not a plot of numbers. Looks a bit like cycle brackets: There's not enough day chart data for me to model $RIVN price behavior, but it's starting to come into focus in the last two weeks. By the next earnings I'll have it.

    The "news" did not change the price of $RIVN.

    1) can't believe yahoo finance still exists (or "Zach research") 2) zero fact-checking aside, all errors are biased (heavy) to the negative (smacks of a hit job)

    The "news" did not change the price of $RIVN.

    Thanks … I didn't notice this 1,200 number bouncing around (again … I'm not much of one to read "the news" … I much rather read the facts than the fiction) … before the 1015 number was a fact, if you'd asked me, I would have said "just a few hundred, mostly to employees and 2 R1S went to the...
