I bet it would last pretty well if it was balanced.

You need a round piece of wood! Get wood in the same diameter as the stock one. Throw a piece on a wood lathe or something.

Use wood. Drill holes and fill with fiberglass resin. Then wrap entire wood length in fiberglass matting and resin.

Rubber bands for a good windup. Like a manual trans brake -ish launch device. Cheaper alternative to the slipper clutch for Leroy

What about a marerial which is more tough? Bambus for example, too id maybe cut the wooden part a bit longer since its much more flexible than the metal shaft to prevent the difference between the both materials and twistabiltys? I hope that makes sense, funny idea tho. What about a giant spring as shaft? That would be interesting too

Use the same type of beam but run it through a lathe until its perfectly straight.
etm04040 Il y a jour
could soak the 4x4 in penetrating epoxy maybe
Thomas Cary
Thomas Cary Il y a jour
You could have taken a word turning tool like a bowl gouge and while it was on the rack. Turned the 4x4 down. That would have help balance it out.

balance it, wrap it with fiberglass, and you'll be good. use type 3 wood glue instead of resin though lol with denim instead of fiberglass
Dave Iauco
Dave Iauco Il y a jour
Start with a 6 x 6, turn it down on a lathe. Insert into ends and bolt/glue like you did. Coat entire shaft with jb weld & turn on lathe again. Then install & try it.

What if you get some plates and wrap the board with 4 or 5 plates. That might help.
theositocharmin Il y a jour
next time try whit a different tipe of wood .on jalisco mexico there is a wood the we called CUATE this wood is so hard the even a chainsaw can’t cut it
jeff curtis
jeff curtis Il y a jour
You guys need to use a different type of wood that is stronger, 4x4s are not the best for what your trying to do and have the shaft lathed so the shaft is true. Avoid drilling holes threw it it will brake the grain and cause week spots in the wood. Not sure what to recommend for would but ash might be a good start

That piece of wood is not pressure treated. If it were pressure treated, it would have holes in it and it would be a brown color.

Take a piece of white oak use a 4"x4" and have it turned to the ID of your shaft ends. Try home depot they have different "Hobby Wood" I get all my wood for making different cutting Boards serving Trays wall art skateboards and more. Love the U tube and the merch.

I recommend a hardwood and shape it to the diameter of a regular driveshaft and add counter weights if needed.

It would have held up WAY better if you guys just spun it on the rack and shaved it some to balance it. The Rustang Wood Lathe. Cutting the extra off the bolts so they didn't hit the exhaust and brake lines would have been a great idea as well....🤦‍♂️
