    Kinda hard to tell from the video. Taking the wheel off would show where the problem is. the wheel off the problem could be one of the ball joints in the the steering knuckle. It could also be the the bearing(s) in the hub the axle goes through. I wouldn't run it until you get it figured out, a problem like that will only get worse. Should hopefully be a easy fix.

    Looks like a wheel bearing has gone. Best take wheel off, you will know pretty quickly.

    It should be a cheap and easy fix. Did you buy it used?

    If you got it new, then call Traxxas.

    I bought it brand new from amazon. If I call amazon they will send a new one on the spot so who do I call.

    It could be something simple.
    If it has been run then things can loosen up. Pillow balls might be loose, hex could have backed off, bearings could be going bad.

    Take the tire off and find out where the play is.
