I've noticed that when my rear wheel is tightened down my driver still has some play? Shouldn't it be pretty tight? How do I fix?

I have the same thing with my Shadow Raptor, every once in a while I just tighten the locknut by hand when I see it's loose.
Shouldn't be a problem.
"Are they punkin' me Tio, are they punkin' me?"
I would just contact odyssey/gsport for advice. I think my ratchet has a small amount of play
I'm a punk bmxer, I can't do it well so I do it loud.
Of the two things Tim mentioned, I would suspect the spacer being slightly flattened, or what you're seeing just could be within working tolerance. Email them, complete with pics of the driver to both the extreme left and extreme right. You will probably get better pics without the chain installed. If your chain rubs on either the hubshell or the dropout, then even if they say its fine, I would go to a hardware store or auto parts store and see if they have any stainless shim stock available.

I had the same concern with my bsd backstreet, I emailed bsd and they said its fine, its just because they are press fit hubs and as long as everything is pushed together there's nothing to worry about, and that a slight bit of movement is to be expected.
