  1. Redburn Conference - RJ Interview: increased range coming early next year. R2 vehicles are “goosebump inducing"

    In my experience with new EV's the manufacturer starts with a very big reserve, then ups the usable capacity based on data from the current fleet and battery deg. Seems like the deg is good enough they think they can up the reserve.
  2. Motorcycle Hauling Trip with R1T -- Good news for the bike folks!

    You're going to hate me. I always wanted one and found it 200 miles away with 30k on it for $2k. Knocked em down to $1500. Fully functioning bike with the hard cases and abs. Just some scrapes on one head from a drop. It's a nice addition to the stable.
  3. Motorcycle Hauling Trip with R1T -- Good news for the bike folks!

    21s. Those look a bit taller than this bike and with 2x of them that makes sense. I saw one guy get 1.35 a while ago so I was pleasantly surprised.
  4. Motorcycle Hauling Trip with R1T -- Good news for the bike folks!

    I was terrified of how bad the efficient would be but she did great. I should have taken this picture before getting off the highway but the average w:as over 70, setting cruise to 78-80. Temps in the high 30s to low 40s. Conserve mode with auto height. 1.75mi/kw was pretty easily sustainable. I...
  5. R1T's range is so impressive, even on 20" tires. Averaged 2.38 mi/kWh on 400 mile road trip

    I just experimented some. Set it to auto height in conserve. Lowest seems considerably less efficient. Tested on 50 mile highway stretches.
  6. R1T's range is so impressive, even on 20" tires. Averaged 2.38 mi/kWh on 400 mile road trip

    There is one highway near me that is wide open with no trees anywhere nearby that always seems to have a headwind where I get terrible efficiency in any EV. That's kind of all I can think of... Weird.
  7. Powered to Manual Tonneau Bed Cover Conversion -- DIY how-to with photos

    Unscrewed the torx from the top of the end caps and broke off the bottom tab because I didn't feel like ripping apart the walls of the bed to get to the last torx on each side.

    I would have done the same BUT the manual still has the storage locker in the front of the bed as best as I can tell, it just goes unused. I'm happy enough with my jank setup and the truck in my driveway.

    Honestly I would have taken the extra six inches used up by the storage bay and this type of manual system over the auto system in the first place.

    You're not lying. I had my whole bed ripped apart about 75 miles and 48 hours into ownership because I needed a truck to move with with the bed OPEN. I'm sure it's all held together now by about 25% of the factory clips.
  11. Powered to Manual Tonneau Bed Cover Conversion -- DIY how-to with photos

    I get the feeling thats a yes. What I read on the manual was that you basically do the same thing, but they're just less, larger slats.
  12. Powered to Manual Tonneau Bed Cover Conversion -- DIY how-to with photos

    This is for those that don't want to be stuck with their bed either open or closed. I want it closed for efficiency but the ability to open it up if I want to toss a motorcycle back there from time to time, and I don't want to have to bring it to Rivian each time I want to change it. It's is...
  13. DIY Tonneau Repairs? Anyone try to do this yet?

    Yep, I started to fiddle with it and realized that fast. I pulled off the end caps and made it a manual tonneau. Much much better. Going to make another post.
  14. What do you want addressed in the next OTA update?

    - Disabling map auto zoom - auto navigate to work / home - Calm down the traffic avoidance a bit. It sends me to side roads that are often just as slow, if not slower, then the highway during rush hour. - A medium suspension setting. Soft is too soft, stiff is too stiff. - Steering...
  15. Why no glove compartment

    If you look at the tear downs there is a bunch of stuff right there, that is my guess as to why. If you watch the long way up there was a bunch of stuff actually under the hood that got moved for production.
