Thanks budget. However if you drive your trike on the street and it is a live axle, you will likely have problems trying to turn the trike without the rear wheels pushing you straight forward. That is why I have a split axle. The reason the old three wheelers would work with a live axle is because the tires would slide across the top of the ground making it easier to turn with a one piece axle. If you're building a drift trike, the plastic pipe on the outside of the wheels create the same effect allowing you to have a one piece and still be able to turn with ease.
