I am one of those, both demographically and that want the feature. Rivian will face no backlash from me if it doesn't come to fruition. There's a vast difference between 'we can't give this to you safely' and 'we decided to can this feature for no particular reason'.You are 100% correct that people can choose and will do what they want with their Rivian. But you have to take into account that Rivian's demographic *are* those that go adventuring/off-roading. They're showing prominent features (gimmick or not) that are aimed towards that lifestyle. To promote a feature to then axe it is foul play. Again, I don't mind Tank Turning getting delayed as long as it's in the name of perfecting the program and algorithm. But if the project gets canned, Rivian is going to face some issues from backlash from customers that *want* this feature.
I don't need tank turn. I'd like it, sure. If lack of tank turn is the reason people want to give up their pre-order, I'm always happy to move 1 spot up the queue
