Ordered a wheelbuild, specifying I needed a campag freehub and ended up with this:

It's the WW version of a Campy hub :D
There's sometimes a buggy.
How many drivers does a buggy have?

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...

Campag cassette will slide on, but you just have a ridiculous amount of slack, can move the cassette round from one spline to the other, so a good inch or so.

Dude, that is a tune hub, right? It is THE WW version of a campagnolo body.

Extralite SLX.

So what, the cassette is supposed to be able to move around when installing it, and you just rely on the lockring to ensure the cassette doesn't move back round on the freehub?

Yes, basically.

Rotate the sprockets until they stop (in the drive direction) when installing, the lockring and drive torque will stop them moving. Unless you're trying to run this fixed why would they rotate backwards in use? The freewheeling of the hub stops any reverse torque.
