    Ditto! ... But unfortunately this just adds to my desire, impatience if you will, to test drive either of these EAVs. :headbang:

    Speaking of which, @aAlpine did you happen to ask or hear any mention any news or status regarding the Test Drive Tour program Rivian is looking to do? Sure hope they get this up and running soon, at least before they open up the ability to configure our vehicles that Rivian said should occur later this year. However, I suspect they will first have to get the plant in Normal rolling first to produce the vehicles used for the test drives. Oh the madness ... :facepalm:

    Ditto here. All in due time, I suppose.

    @EyeOnRivian, pretty sure this is old news, but it sounds like there will be a number of events where you can come and test drive the vehicles. I asked about locations and they said geographically spread out something like "west coast, central, east coast". Didn't sound like Canada was included, so hopefully something within a reasonable drive from me, like near Seattle at least. Nothing about the schedule or timing, but I'm really hoping something hands-on will happen before needing to commit to the preorder, since I'm still undecided on R1T vs R1S.

    I hear ya, same here. I've pre-ordered the R1S but leaning more and more towards the R1T. I'm really counting on a test drive to help determine which one ... assuming I walk away from it liking at least one of them ... or worse, both of them. :surprised: Thanks for the info!

    Nothing special or anything new other than the one under-seat photo I already posted here, but sure thing, here's the rest! :)

    @aAlpine , on the R1T, are those 275/65/R20 (34") or 275/60/R20 (33") tires?

    I'm seeing LT275/65/R20 in the photo of the R1T. R1S says 275/50R22. Though I wouldn't buy anything until it the spec is official. Though I'd be surprised if they changed that between now and production.
