RA's Build Thread...

I've been working hard, with what time I can muster, to build up RA.

I went through the dreaded debate ZL1 or V6. I went v6, I won't open that can-o-worms as everyone has a view of SCv8,v8,v6.

I figure it gave me an easy 20-30k buffer to play with and many of the mods that I had planned would have also been done to the ZL1.

So, I guess I start;

What's behind the name? 'Ra' I've had a lot of vehicles but I've never given one a name. 'Ra' seems fitting.
Wiki has this:
Ra was the ancient Egyptian solar deity. By the Fifth Dynasty (2494 to 2345 BC) he had become a major god in ancient Egyptian religion, identified primarily with the midday sun. The meaning of the name is uncertain, but it is thought that if not a word for 'sun' it may be a variant of or linked to words meaning 'creative power' and 'creator'.

'Ra' the creator / midday sun. I felt both were fitting, being IOM and the fact that I'll be crafting a number of customized items for this.
