    You should use some rope!! Ship rope...

    Maybe I'm a bit blazzed, but now im worried how dangerous this could be, what if it twists and bends the car. Not only the potential to squish the driver, also force metal up through the cab??

    Maybe do this one with our first ever remote control car build hahaha

      Try a piece of hardwood like birch. Pressure treated posts are generally softer woods. Have a viewer turn it down on a lathe and ship it to you

        I bet a shaft made out of oak would have lasted longer :)

            Build it out of walnut or at least a stronger piece of wood pine has to be the worst one but nice job

                Do y'all think a steel tube driveshaft would stay put being that far out of balance? (I wouldn't try it without a driveshaft safety shroud.) Try using a real good hardwood like Ash (baseball bats) and turn it on a lathe until you get a perfect fit in your end tubes. Gorilla glue & bolts were very good.

                  Did you even phase the ends? Basic driveshaft tec I've shortened a few over the years and didn't even need a rebalance.

                            Use heart wood oak,Hickory,ash or any other hard wood center grain then turn it. Their is a reason pine is not used for baseball bats,sledge and regular hammer handles why? strength!!

                                        That is not a mullet Cleetus. You have to have at least three inches for it to be classed as a mullet, smh.

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
