Our 2023 truck pulling/racing season has begun! We turned a lot of heads and impressed hundreds at the first of many truck pull events. This was a test hook day where I could try different modes for hauling the 35 plus thousand pounds we were hooked too. Watch the video to see how we did! Thanks!

I'm impressed, but not surprised.

Nice job. Thanks for sharing.

I had a memory of another tractor/truck pull with a Rivian. Edmunds put one out 7 months ago. Another vid for others to see how the electric trucks do:

That's awesome! What have you found for the best setting what are you running for tire pressures?

I really wish Rivian would give us some gauges for motor temps and such so we could see how its doing when treating the truck like this.

Some are digging into the CAN bus data so I suspect for those going beyond normal truck usage there will be solutions.

and person that put it together.
