    Huckelfin, hard to describe the nuance here but Rivian has delivered a precious few vehicles to third party customers as a start up EV company and their communications and delays have been dismal including this debacle. One could argue their first two vehicles are worth the 20% price increase based on capabilities and alternatives.

    At the risk of getting flamed, even if I could afford it, not sure I’ll ever be able to buy another new MC. The latest price thresholds are freaking insane. First world admittedly.

        Worth a full watch as Cammisa vids are wildly entertaining. But for the ADHD crowd, you can just watch the first 1:30 or cut straight to 5:00 for Rivian tow test.

            Trucks drag racing? Seriously, who would care about that?

              Certainly makes for good TV and it was fun to watch. There's no denying the shear torque and performance available with electric. If you were not aware of that awesome torque performance you should be after watching and seeing the electric race with that trailer behind it.

              Anyone else notice that the 2 real trucks were off road models. Wonder when they'll do the off road course version of this race.....

                The Rivian is arguably more capable than the other "real trucks." It's cool you can be out crawling jeeps in Moab in the AM then proceed to race Ferraris (and win) on the strip in the PM.

                      I worked for a Canadian that built and raced semi trucks as a hobby. He could have easily raced in the Porsche GT3 Cup, but chose trucks. Oddest thing.

                        Had the call with our Rivian guide yesterday. They claim we are on track with our Apr/May delivery window, but I read between the lines that we should also accept June as a reality as well.

                          Just to confirm, was he talking about '22? lol. I'm looking forward to the pics and your review.

                            Yup! And even more shockingly… we got our buyer’s agreement yesterday. Apparently that happens when we get assigned a VIN and a build slot so….fingers crossed!

                              OMG OMG.....It all happened so fast that I didn't get a pic, but I saw one on the road today. lol

                              Rumors must be true and they being delivered to real people.

                                I see at least one or two regularly on my commutes around the SF Bay Area, so they are out there now.
