Yea, in my other thread I, and others, cover the many points one must consider when comparing coils to air suspension in the context of the R1T. Your TRX doesn't need to lower itself at highway speeds to maintain efficiency - it just doesn't give a shit how many dinosaurs it burns.The long travel coil suspension in my TRX was far more compliant over bumps and much smoother on rough terrain. The Rivian’s pay the price in some areas due to being a jack of all trades suspension setup.
Bumps alone do not determine overall ride quality, even if that's the primary complaint from users (which says a lot in and of itself).
One of the MANY reasons the air suspension is pretty much necessary to enable to R1T to be what it is.
