One tire fire problem, plus some metal shavings found in rear..

hey everyone im just wondering if a rebuild kit should fix my left side from not laying rubber like my right does. i found a little bit of metal shaving in the rear fluid a few weeks back, i drained it and filled it again and it sat for a while and i went the other day to see if the spider gears ring or pinion were chipped or ground down, which they didnt seem to be. but this time i didnt see any shavings or anything in the fluid. so could it still be ok or is it a definite that something is messed up if there was shavings?

yeah, if you keep getting shavings and have chipped spider gears something is messed up. did you use friction modifier when you put the oil in?

no, it wasnt driven i only put it in bc i was told keeping it empty can cause it to rust and it sat for a good three weeks or so, idk if rust could start that quick but just incase

so im a little confused. i thought your main issue was the ne wheel peel? if it doesnt have friction modifier in it then you will probably only get one tire going. you need 4oz'es of friction modifier added to the gear oil.

there should have been enough coating left from the oil to prevent rust for only 3 weeks i would think. i just had my whole cover of for around 3 weeks and didnt have any rust what so ever in mine.

as for any damaged gears could you get us a pic?

ismgear mesh compound. you paint the gear when setting it up. then rotate it a few turns so you can see how its meshing.
