Corolla is the most produce model of any car ever ... That should be a bit easier to find then an English 3 wheeler.

I've heard of a trick where the VW guys weld the spider housing shut, with a bung added,  and fill it with gear oil, then run it till it drops.  You could do sorta' the same thing with old Japan axle, but just run some grease in the spider gears and shaft.  There won't be a lot of diff action unless a tire is spinning a lot, and the grease will be thrown against the inside of the housing.  I don't think you'd need to worry about sealing the axle shafts into the side gears.

I Thought getting hold of one of those may be a prolem I could have a look over here if that was the way you wanted to go but shipping would probably cost an arm and a leg. Volvo also do an Axle that we used to use with outboard discs but i cant for the life of me remember the model that it came from I can look into it if you like.
You Could always go for a live axle and just machine bearing carriers but you would probably have to make the A arms to suit "loads more work"
giz a shout if you would like me to have a look about.

Here's  question, do you need a diff for just straight line racing? How about just a solid axle that comes apart for sprocket changes? I was thinking about just a cheap, lightweight axle housing with all the internals removed and the hubs and whatever else scavanged to use where we can. Can you run on the concrete and asphalt at Maxton with a solid rear axle?

Just curious?  With suspension or without?

with a motorcycle motor you will definitely need suspension cuz the shock loads will damage trans gears and rip the output shaft out of the cases

I like the live axle idea ... keep it simple ... single inboard brake ... the after market trike axle looks good but for $3k it would be fairly easy to fab out at a quarter the cost.

How about looking at sprint car or more likely midget rear ends? They're a single shaft from one end to the other and relatively inexpensive. You wouldn't necessarily need the housing.
