1/4 scale buggie dog bone chain drive suspension

i'm building a large scale buggie with independent suspension using a gas scooter engine. i just got a metal lathe and i'm making my own dog bone/drive cup style drive system, is anyone interested in buying partial or even complete drive setups for their own builds? anyone done this before and have any tips to save time and or overlooked stupid mistakes prototyping? its all drawn up in 3d getting ready to start machining. any questions?

BTW, its chain drive. 4wd shouldn't be a problem either.

This is not a FS tread. No SELLING ALOWED.
Suggestion: Don't use cold rold steel unless your going to just fab them up. You will need some really hard material for driveline parts.
