That wire loom is still hanging beneath the control arm... :rolleyes:
That looks like a brake hydraulic line (to me) in this pic. You sure this is a wire loom? The pic I saw where people mentioned that it was on the passenger side.

Interesting, it seems the rear suspension has destroyed part of the wheel well protection cover when going at high speed trought rough terrain. Another testament to real world test before production.
I have done this about 5 times on almost every car I own whether road racing or off roading. Good test, better test is to see how components hold up after line has been ripped off. It should be no impact I'm hoping.

I was watching some of day 4 coverage via YouTube, good stuff.

I just love the area their at, so much variation in the terrain, some of the best off road areas in the USA too!

It's funny how this rally and these two ladies were not on many of our radars. Now they are! Love this whole idea and love seeing the R1T out there holding its own. Like my wife said, even if they don't win, it shows the truck can compete against ICE vehicles. That is a pretty exciting moment for Rivian AND for EVs in general as the tech will only get better.

Absolutely. You can see most trucks compete until sunset, so losing ~1hr for charging means they need to step it up when they can.

The RebelleRally truck needs some dust/rain guards on the front seat side windows. Let's in air with some protection. I'm surprised they're not installed.
