To work with a model in Gazebo, you need to specify correct inertial tensor in the collision elements of its urdf/xacro file. If they are wrong, Gazebo will not simulate them properly as underlying physics doesn't know how to correct them. Model drifting, toppling, skidding without actuation is a common scenario in this case, as usually, the Center of Mass or Center of Gravity is not at equilibrium.
