It's not just you. I've known about it since the fairly recent upgrade but thought it was only effecting a thread or two so I didn't bother digging too deep into the cause. Now that I see it's a bit more widespread, I'll see what I can do.

EDIT: I just worked on it for a few hours and I think I finally figured it out. It seems to be an issue with the Cloudflare service we use. I temporarily disabled it, and that seems to have fixed the problem! All the attachments in the offending topics appear to properly load again. Looks like I'll now have to figure out the issue with Cloudflare before re-enabling it again.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Hi there!

Can anyone confirm the thickness of the G10 Fiberglass Battery Straps used on the original Edinger Good year RC10s?
I am not sure if I have the correct ones for my car to finally finish off the build.
Somehow, they seem a little thinner than the ones I have seen online.

I think, it's about time to rename the main topic to "35 YEARS OF THE RC10"... :D

They are 2.5 to 2.75mm by the naked eye and a good ruler. Sorry for the lack of an exact measurement, my caliper is out side in the cold (-20c).

They should be the same thickness as the shock towers, no? Which is 0.093".

Thank you for the replies!

I think I may have a reproduction set then. These look to be only 2.0 mm. maybe slightly less.
I have a 98% early Edinger RC10 now. That's heartbreaking!
I found this gem a few years ago. It is near mint too!
The Good Year tires have 99% tread left but are dry rotted and cracked through.
I am also trying to figure out how to "glue" them back together where they are cracked.
I have them currently in a temp and humidity controlled area in my home so they do not get further dry and damaged.
Any suggestions what I can do to the tires (other than leave them alone)?
I might as well throw out there if anyone has a set of real fiberglass battery straps they might be willing to part with so I can complete this gem.
Thanks all!

Very early Edinger was the only one with diamond, as far as I remember.
