You don't even need 60amps. My hobart handler 190 and mvp 210 ran fine off a 30 amp breaker. The 190 only draws like 19 - 22 amps
My Miller 255 suggests a 12kW generator to run it. I'm guessing if you actually turn it all the way up the surge is probably quite a bit higher than the breaker rating to start the arc, since that's kinda how breakers work.

I've read this whole thread, including my first post, and I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the annoyance of not being able to flip the wiper blades so they stay up for wind screen cleaning.

Garage door proximity pop up.. On my previous car (Q7), when I pulled in my driveway, a giant pop up to open the garage would pop on on the screen vs the Rivian's required 2 tiny button pushes.

USB playback, or at least a viable explanation as to why they're dragging their heels for this seemingly easy-to-implement feature. The "well, we feature a suite of premium streaming services" line does not fly for those of us who like music our way. A lot of streamers either include commercials, or try to think for us with "you might like this song..." algorithms (usually wildly incorrect), both of which annoy the hell outta me.

It wasn't, it is now. Manufacturers now just have to go through the legalities to get theirs approved.
Because the US Government used different rules than EU.

An R1S with the R1T wheelbase…
meaning:
- smoother drive
- more space behind 3rd row
- easier to access 3rd row
- more 2nd and 3rd row space.
Canceled my R1S res because of space. Still love my R1T.
