Very likely it's a bent rim. Try changing the wobbling tire to a different axle on the truck and see it that tire still has the problem or if the problem stayed where it was. If the problem went with the tire than you know that you need a new rim (or could just be the foam out of balance - probably the rim though) and if the problem stayed where it was then it's either really bad bearings or a bent axle/drive shaft

Hey RcMonsta. If its not the rim and the tire looks like its mounted OK, then it could be a wet foam or like mine, which is usually a small amount of sand and dust getting inside and finding one area to build up. Then my gt hops down the track. So you might have too remove the tire from the rim. Later.Dan.
