Play? Your saying with wheel movement? I snug the wheel nuts down.
I also do not run camber, toe in or out. Your not racing, your not carving corners, your crawling/trail running.
So handling will be good with zero on everything.

Thank you for responding to my question! After wrecking my brand new Everest GEN two ( it rolled down the hill in the forest about 300 feet flipped like 25 times )my and replacing the front axle housing. ( The axle housing broke where the shock attaches to it )I noticed extra play up and down forwards and backwards looseness in other words on the front wheels that have a CV joints just was wondering how it typed that should really be or a little bit of play is normal.

IAlso head of the temper GEN two rock crawler, I really like it but I find the Everest Jen seven to be more challenging since the temperature climbs stuff like an insect!

Binding is only where the radio and paired with the receiver. You have movement, so the electronics needed are "binded". You have other issues.
If your doing something with lights, and was working with wires, and had battery plugged in or power to vehicle. Cross any wires, you might of shorted out receiver ports. Or fried the steering servo.

I would try plugging servo into another RC receiver to verify.
