I am wondering if some companies should review non-disclosures with their employees. Two interesting comments.
1. One of them mentions SKB. I take this to be the SKateBoard. In this comment there is also the 'code' "R1T-VP3". This makes me wonder if there has been 3 revisions of the skateboard frame for the R1T
2. Also the comment that talks about Lines. Alludes to Line 1 being done or close to it and Line 2 coming up 2nd part of 2021.

In the latest video where Rivian lets the Long Way Up producer drive a newer prototype, they do discuss what they learned from the Long Way Up trips. An engineer specifically mentioned that they learned a lot about rough terrain and they have since modified the frame design to be a lot stiffer in the front.

That has me wondering what its overall rigidity will be like and how it will hold up in independent testing.

The Amazon vans have their own production line (separate from the R1T/R1S) in a different area of the facility.
