My dad lost a trailer once when we were moving, it started speed swaying like that. His trailer didn't have brakes but luckily it was being pulled by his 2 ton International, which wasn't even thinking about being whipped around by a trailer. So the hitch just snapped off and the trailer shot across the interstate nailing the barrier, effectively shutting down i35 for 30mins to an hour.

The tires don't rub under full lock but with any compression, its there.
Tech inspection seems like a joke. I don't even know what they check, but devak made it through with a cracked windshield

My Ride: 2011 335is
If any one in the KC area is interested in some unopened Red Line 75W90 gear oil or Red Line MTL fluid I have some. Posted it for sale in the classifieds, http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...8#post13316008

I'm located in the Northland area. I never found a local supplier so I had to have it shipped in, I'm selling below the product cost, let alone the cost to have it shipped to me.

I traded in my E46 for a new E92, so I no longer need the oil.
