    Nice try Bolus, but you are COLD.

    Rollbars hung from the ceiling..good! I've been tripping over two of them for a while,and recently hung them from the ceiling..after I saw Gages pics. Live and learn! Hmm..maybe I can hang the 12 fenders I have up there as well..

    Can anyone guess what these are? (The huge crates on the top shelf)
    The 361kg ones, or the 164kg ones? Hmm.. 800lbs or 360lbs.. pretty heavy stuff.

    lets see.. top shelf, so something that never gets used. Bigger than a breadbox. Whole bunch of other crap just stuffed under them along with packaging. I'm gonna say something from Brammo.. parts.. maybe frames?

    50 shiny brammo mufflers!.........

    I'm guessing 800lb box is motor/transaxle combo...smaller box is transaxle alone..?

    Although you did say DC was warm...hmm..maybe a frame kit(s) in one box and control arms/uprights in the other?

    It would have to be two in the big box, and 1 in the little box. Even the LS3 V8 I'm getting, along with the 6 speed transmission is less than 800lbs.. quite a bit less.

    And since Bolus' answer was a type of engine, and it was "COLD" I'm gonna say that's not it either.

    That crate probably weighs 250lbs alone. That leaves 550 for stuff. what weights 550lbs, and takes up that much space. Craig Bramscher and his ego perhaps?

    Anyone know where to get the arm safety center strap from the Spec cars that is right next to the right shoulder? I think it would be great to have if I dont want to talk to a passenger

    Those big boxes contain Atom V-8's, bodies, engines, frames, etc. Everything to build an Atom V-8 is in ONE of those boxes.
