You have it right. There is nothing wrong with what you show in the video.
It's better to be free and not have any binding.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

What I am trying to rationalize is if the the original design (out of the box stock standard) called for no slop (shock on the right rear) which I agree with, then why release a FT version that allows for 2mm of slop.

More slop = less consistent and over time damaging to that part.

Either I've not installed it correctly or poor inconsistent design from AE.

the plastic caps do wear. My plastic caps have to be replaced every 5-6 months

I already gave you the part # you need to reduce the "slop". Do I need to post pics? All 3 of my b5ms have the bushing ball insert things....

Even if they were worn shouldn't there be equally as much slop on the standard brushing as the FT if the design was consistent?

mine are the same as yours. I would not worry about it. I also have some AVID standoffs. Same thing. I actually think your kit ones are a problem. My kyosho and tlr cars also floated front to rear.

I already have them installed, you can see from the you-tube clip. I actually ordered them separately thinking that the blue brushing did'nt come with them but they do.

So you're saying that you don't have the same slop issue even though you're using the same parts? Perhaps I got two batches of bad parts...

In any case I've removed them for now, I prefer a the original parts with no slop.

Thanks everyone for your feedback.

The reason your kit ones do not move is because you can crush them when you tighten them. This is binding and not good. There is nothing wrong with the FT mounts and everyone runs them with that little play front to back. You will never notice it when the car is on the track.

Slap an old red o-ring on the standoff and call it a day already.

Run it with slop. Loose fitting AE cars are normal and fast

Sean is right... the more you tighten the kit standoff the more it will crush the plastic and cause it to be tight like it is in the vid. The FT however will not crush so it lets the shock be free and have play like it should. With his kit ones I guarantee that when you fully compress that side and try and wiggle or spin the shock it is completely stuck and thats not good and WILL cause your car to behave strangely. Put the FT standoffs on and snug the nut down and make sure the shock is free when fully compressed, then your cars suspension will be performing as it was designed. Hope this helps you.

I guess I'm not sure what we're calling slop. The shock is supposed to sort of swivel on the shock bushing ball. Mine move but do not really have any slop. If the movement is the issue then don't worry about it. They are not supposed to fixed in place at the top.

He is referring to the movement fore and aft. (forwards and backwards) as far as I can tell because I didnt see it moving up and down much which it shouldnt.
