I once overinflated a bicycle tire to the point of a blowout and it was incredibly loud. I can only imagine how loud this was.

You missed a few things which any old trucker could’ve told you. First off, in trucker parlance, these are called “Maxis”, as opposed to the non-spring brakes, which were just called “cans”. On your typical 18-wheelers, you’ll find maxis on only the last drive axle and the 2 trailer axles, never on the steer, and Read more

I’ve been collecting diecast cars for 15 years. I have seen them in all sizes and states of existence.
