Acording to Bulbapedia, Trapinch has a hidden ability but Vibrava and Flygon don't. I was wondering if anybody knows or is williing to try, if a DWF Trapinch that evolves into Vibrava or Flygon can still pass its hidden ability to its offspring?? I would try myself but i don't have one

I think i'm right in saying that evolution changes the data from dw ability to levitate. The female parent must have a dw ability in order to pass it, and so because it is now levitate (and the dw ability and levitate can't share the same coding) it won't pass.

Hey Rik, shadowreaper is correct. I just tried it and the ability of Vibrava and Flygon will be Levitate.

According to Smogon Vibrava has Leviate as both its standard ability and its Hidden Ability meaning that a Sheer Force Trapinch should evolve into a Levitate Vibrava that has the hidden ability flag activated.

If this is correct Vibrava and Flygon should be able to pass on Hidden abilities

Ahh, that seems more likely, its an odd way to work it for when a first evolution has 3 abilities and the latter has 1, but i imagine now that i think about it that because the flag is tripped it should be able to pass.

This actually quite a good brain teaser. I haven't tried it, i just based that on what i knew from previous games (and forgot about the Flag system for DW abilities).
I'll be interested to know if breeding a Flygon/Vibrava who was a DW trapinch, can actually create a dw trapinch.

Here you go Rik, I read your post wrong the first time, but decided to try it out myself.

Let me know if you see the screenshots or not.

A female Trapinch with Sheer Force (DW):

The same Trapinch evolved into Flygon with Levitate (DW):

A Trapinch with Sheer Force (DW) bred from that Flygon and an Adamant Scizor:

Hope that helps.
