well the drivers side tyre has alot less tread, and as u can see it initially wasnt spining as fast as the passenger side.... im finding it all very odd. still only spun one around corners today...

If you've a single spinner and only one wheel lights up get a mate to lift the gaurd on the other side, usualy get them both going. :P

a good single spinner diff will spin both wheels when perfectly balanced, which means same tread on each tire, same weight on each tire, and same friction of the road under both wtires.
otherwise the wheel with the least friction will spin.
if your diff is doing it all the time, even in the wet ild say your diff is rooted

Mine might do twins for about half a metre but then the driver side rear is the only one to smoke, in the wet though it will do both easy.
