Nothing we didn't already know but it's a good reminder of the unique features Rivian brings to the table.

It bugs me that everybody gloms on to tank turn without paying attention to all the other juicy stuff about having a motor-per-wheel Rivian is leveraging.

Speaking of tank turn, that video is the first I've heard (or paid attention to the fact) that it may be geo-fenced. While I'll have close to zero legitimate use for tank turn, hopefully I'll still be able to have some teenage fun in a snowy parking lot at some point.

Same here. And if I understood what RJ said regarding geo-fencing, the vehicle would determine if you're on a "specific" trail implying (?) the tank turn function would not be available if not on a geo-fenced detected trail? So unless your beckoning, snowy covered "parking lot" is within a geo-fenced area (implying it's near a "specific" trail) *and* the parking lot surface is considered low friction, you might just have to settle for some good ole fashion doughnuts.
