Cliffs Notes:
Nothing special except the following.
Tommy got the max ground clearance wrong. Called it 11.5". Of course it's nearly 15". However he was very impressed with the fit and finish. Mentioned how nice the body gaps were.

I'm sure that YouTuber-economics played a big role in TFL launching an EV-exclusive venue under their TFL banner. Even so, it will be nice to have this go-to place to find straightforward reviews with a common regiment of comparative tests.

Does the Rivian brass know these guys are actually planning on publishing the charge curve.
"Oh The Humanity"
Did they say that they would in the video? Based on their past tests, I have literally zero confidence in TFL getting a charging curve right. This should be entertaining.

Good to see it's Tommy at least.

Edits as I'm watching this:
Who's employee #4? Brian?

Cool that you can (apparently) manually lift the frunk if needed (for snow for example).

Tonneau looked to work well.

That's a lower VIN # than the truck I had for my mobile drive. So not a newer build unit.

They did say a charging curve would be forthcoming with a full discharge and charge. Also mentioned, in conjunction with their new EV channel, that they wanted to do standardized curves. So let’s see, it should provide some information which has not been forthcoming so far.
