The rear axle is generally solid bar stock of approximate 30mm diameter.
This is what I have always used on my karts.
I have seen racing karts however with hollow pipe live rear axles. This
cuts down on the weight significantly, but Im sure that the hollow
pipe was a specially manufactured axle with a satisfactory wall
But yes - a solid rear axle is generally the norm.
Best of Luck,
