I wanted to put this in General Chit Chat for more exposure, but here we are. :)

Aside from just taking a stock pickup up this feature, seeing the torque vectoring in action is pretty amazing. This driver is decent, too. :)

The range is still an issue for me, but these are early days for battery technology. The Rivian is definitely on the table for a daily driver, and maybe weekender.

Starting today, you will see about 40 different takes on the R1T from a recent off road experience near Breckenridge. Most were very impressed with it both on and off road, especially with how comfortable it was. Here is one, but there are many others including lots of cool Youtube videos!

Easy, peazy. Just bring a support semi stuffed with a generator and fuel if you want to spend a week in the desert.

Dave - you forgot to mention the words 'zero carbon' on the side of the semi ;-)

I want that truck but can’t really justify the cost as a DD. The Tesla Y makes more sense unless I give up my 80.

Did they air down for that? Seems like the traction was just horrible... or is it just too torquey?

I'm guessing 20's don't offer much sidewall flex. Would be better equipped for real wheeling with 17" wheels.
