    Cool new video promo released this morning. R1T to the rescue. Anyone "on the fence" about the stadium headlights, be warned - the "flashing eyes" hazard lights may startle you. Ha! https://mashable.com/video/rivian-electric-truck-long-way-up/

    Video Feature: Long Way Up -- R1T's 13k mile all-electric journey from Patagonia to LA

    Here's a bit from a review of the first three episodes from ridepart.com. Key point - they were able to charge the Harleys from the R1Ts. "The fact that the partners also managed to create a V2M network—vehicle to motorcycle—that allowed Ewan and Charley to charge the bike directly from the...

    Rivian Hires Ex-Tesla Exec as Top Engineer

    Ok... yes, I saw this a few days ago on the Rivian forum on Reddit. I’ve been avoiding mentioning it on here for reasons: the Civil suit itself seems sketchy to me in that this Sr. Engineer seems to be the only one on the Long Way Up trip having any Issues. 2) The source of the original report...

    Rivian Hires Ex-Tesla Exec as Top Engineer

    Mark Vinnels’ sudden departure this close to launch concerns me a little. He seemed like such an outsize influence on the whole design and engineering team and he was highly visible publicly. Makes me wonder what’s going on behind the scenes that we’re not aware of.

    New Official Video: Normal, August 2020 | Progress Report | Rivian

    I wonder if that’s an R1S option only, or both? I’m still strongly all-terrain just from the added versatility it allows off-pavement versus trying to wring out every mile of range. But I may change my mind if I could hear in person how much highway noise is coming off the Pirelli ATs at...

Also the infotainment system setup. Not...

    I know that. I’m just curious what the design differences are in these two they used for the trip. And why.

    So, a question - I know this is tackled on another thread, but ... here’s a front end shot from South America. How many future R1T owners here are thinking paint protection film for at least bumpers, hood, fenders - even if it costs an extra grand? Curious what everyone thinks?
