An EA82 Engine fits real nice in one of those cheezy plastic hubcaps. The oil pan sits real nice in the center and that springy wire band holds the thing in position under the motor so you can slide the motor around on the floor and it stays in/on the hubcap. Works great on a flat cement floor.

Oversized Krispy Kremes work great too, infact just about anything with a 12 inch hole works like a champ

I'm partial to the spare tires, or the small puny stock tires and wheels
