I would double check this with Acme. The car's tranny does not need to be in neutral, but the steering lock must be disengaged (if there is a steering lock).
Most all cars have a differential type device in the driveline that will allow the wheels to turn opposite directions as the EZE-Tow makes turns. This is good. But, most of the turning is made by the toad's steering - just like a flat towed car.
There is no need for a pivot pan with the EZE-Tow because of the way the toad's wheels can make the turn. Pivot pans and steering axles (seen on other brand dollys) only add weight and increase the maint points. The EZE-Tow is simple as an anvil and works just as designed.
I tow on my EZE-Tow with the car's tranny in Park, the parking brake off, and the steering lock disengaged. Works perfectly
