Check 2 things. The front idler of the non working track. They do fail and can bind the rail into the frame. Also I have had the torque hubs fail. You can attempt to check the oil in the hub, but it's a bitch. The torque hub is a very common failure in the leeboy pavers.

There is a optimization and calibration procedure for the plus 1 drive system. Is there a status light on the dash and is it blinking?

Well if it’s an early 8515 then it’s Mc 200 later 8515s had plus 1 ether way check traction lever potentiometer drive gears. If they are alll plastic it’s early style they split throwing off parameters set up when optimizing
