I pulled my other car out of a parking lot and into a garage. I think the parking lot slope was 15-20 degrees. Three people were unable to push it up so I decided to have it pulled with my primary vehicle.

I am happy to report there was no wheel slip and everything went smoothly, after some learning hiccups regarding timing the braking between the two vehicles.

Probably not a problem for a short distance, but definitely dangerous, you could have car being towed run into you which would be bad.

Wow.   I have a 2" hitch on mine, but I only use it for bikes and a cargo basket.   I am sure that torque wasn't the issue.  What did you attach the tow strap to?
