Flat in the corners yet soft when it hit bumps very nice. Anyone who doesn't know these don't have sway bars. Looks like a fun road anyone know where this is I'm guessing socal area.

Yep, could be one of a hundred SoCal 'canyon's like this. ***EDIT*** With the white gate being open and the brown-ish railings it's probably a lesser-known park/county access road that's more hidden than a typical road or highway.

But yeah definitely SoCal inland/coastal/deserty-Chapparal. ;)

Break into the curve, get on the go pedal through the Apex! :)

Yes, very similar. In fact, I think it came to Rivian from some former McLaren engineers!

That’s on S. Main Divide in the Cleveland National Forest and they are heading away from Ortega Highway (CA-74).
This is the intersection from 2:53 S. Main Divide & Hacienda Rd https://goo.gl/maps/sS1yVBSFYfAZQ9jB6

He is now the Chief Engineer. Super sharp guy, I spoke with him at Fully Charged Live as well.

Ya Charles is a very nice guy. He is proud to be at Rivian and wants his Rivian as much as we do! he can go very technical——way over my head for sure on the stuff he was saying.

I've been seeing some R1Ts around where I live (Southern California), but lately there have been more and more R1S mules around too. I spotted this one while getting lunch. The interior looked finished (and with an ethernet cable sticking out of the dash.) I didn't dare take picture of the interior though :whew:
