How do you go about finding the center of gravity so it rolls over freely and doesn't have a heavy spot?

TIA!

Russ,you read my mind perfectly.I would think for the engine stand idea to work well, i think you have to strip the body down in advance of mounting it on to get rid of some of the wt.What scares the hell out of me is for it to get away from me flipping over too fast and smashing the top of the car that is in it and maybe breaking some of my bones trying to stop it in the process.

I have been told too you have to balance the wt and your question is a better one than you know.
