    Short Lead Times (as of early 9/2023) on DCE Rock Sliders for Both R1T and R1S

    I agree with all of this. Glad that DCE is being upfront on their website now with that lead time information. Easy for me to hold off anyway since I am concerned about adding another 130lbs anyway 😬

    Tesla Superchargers open to Non-Tesla (28 locations and counting as of 9/29/23)

    There are a couple of threads tracking this progress. Most of the new ones popped up over the last couple days.

    Winter Tires: Nokian Hakkapeliitta LT 275/65 R 20 126/123Q ordered. Experience / reviews?

    Well I won't be the one to compare range with ;) Mine is averaging around 1.6 mi/kWh with my Nitto Recon Grappler's but I also drive around with a sail on my roof. Most likely it will be little to no difference with the Nokian's compared to the 20" Pirelli's. I know I had seen some reports...

    Winter Tires: Nokian Hakkapeliitta LT 275/65 R 20 126/123Q ordered. Experience / reviews?

    I have a set of these mounted in my garage. Just waiting for November to get some studs installed and mount them on my truck. https://www.rivianforums.com/forum/threads/r800-ev-sportline-wheels-and-21%E2%80%9D-center-caps.19061/

    Rattling noise from front and back

    Don't worry about costs being added to your tickets, this happens all the time. I was very alarmed the first time it happened to me too. For warranty repairs they will 0 it out.

    Rivian tire change blues!

    I wouldn't be concerned on a Rivian. The R1S compact spare has a smaller diameter than any of the OEM tires. I second the call for a spare, especially if you have the 21s. I got stuck for 6 days in MT recently trying to get a replacement 21" tire. Regretted not carrying my 20" spare with me.

    Cargo Bar Lock Cylinder failure

    They do come out like this but are only supposed to with a blank key while it is unlocked. This is the mechanism for changing the lock cores to match keys. Something must have been stuck or maybe some debris in the lock core caused it to pull out. If you can get your hands on a key blank and...

    Do you always carry keyfob or just keycard?

    Time to stop wearing those 'skinny jeans'... lol I use my fob mostly with the proximity locking as default and my wristband maybe 2% of the time for certain activities. I also carry the keycard and have PAAK as a backup.

    Total Loss insurance payout

    @Sgt Beavis might be the right person to ask since he just went through this. Edit: Here are his threads on the topic for reference: https://www.rivianforums.com/forum/threads/were-ok-but-our-r1t-is-not-rear-ended-accident.15777/page-11#post-363091...

    Rivian tire change blues!

    I mean you won't make any money. Check Amazon already like 50 sellers selling them near that price for metal offerings. You can certainly buy them cheap and they will do the job. I strongly recommend ones with magnets at least, it makes the job a lot easier because you put them in the hole...

    I have booked R1s and I want to test drive - I CAN NOT schedule it in my area

    Would you rather buy from a stealership? It’s not perfect, advantages and disadvantages on both sides If you are close to delivery you should have a guide right? Did you ask them for help? FWIW every time I have called the service line I get someone within a few minutes.

    RESOLVED: jack pucks from jackpucks.com smell TERRIBLE

    Mine had no such issue. Did you reach out to @Mark_AZR1T with your concern?

    Safe to watch eclipse through sunroof?

    Why not… Probably see some really cool solar ‘weather’ https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1284464-REG/celestron_71237_eclipsmart_10x25_solar_binoculars.html/?ap=y&ap=y&smp=y&smp=y&lsft=BI%3A6879&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIi9-60IHPgQMVmiutBh29aA8iEAQYAiABEgKpBvD_BwE Telescope would be even better

    Safe to watch eclipse through sunroof?

    Absolutely not. You need very specific glasses or an obscuring device to avoid eye damage. The tint on the roof isn’t even close to enough. Edit: Here is an article on the topic: https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/eclipses/2024/apr-8-total/safety/

    Short Lead Times (as of early 9/2023) on DCE Rock Sliders for Both R1T and R1S

    Yeah I asked yesterday and was told 4 weeks for new orders placed today. I just don't understand why these companies can't take pre-orders and then charge you when they start building or even better ship your product. It's annoying to me when they charge you right away and then the ETA slides...

    Rivian tire change blues!

    Pucks are available from many retailers. Personally they are of much higher quality then what Rivian is offering with their jack kit. I like the ones from Jackpucks.com and EVSportline as a close second. Also Discount Tire (American tire in some regions) has them (at most locations) as...

    Outrageous Insurance Offer 36% mark up

    I just renewed my R1T policy (State Farm) for a 3rd time a few days back. No significant increase, ~$750/6mo near Portland OR.

    MAX PACK Dual Motor Performance is delivering!

    I mean I hear you. For a new customer it is a $10k upcharge, at least as currently advertised. So to go from 352 miles to 410 equates to a 16.5% increase in range, which should be mostly independent of driving style, tires, configuration etc. To me it's like the analogy of sporting goods (for...
