    1. Cleetus McFarland

      What should we build a drive shaft out of next? My mullet?

      1. Dustyn Kieffer

        PVC tubing

      2. William Lawson

        Do a concrete one Cleetus McFarland

      3. Parker Post

        Pvc drive shaft

      4. Squrkols

        PVC pipe, rebar and concrete

      5. Jordan

        Should have used JB Weld for the epoxy.

    2. Eddie Popcopter

      This is the sketchiest shit I have witnessed

    3. benz merc

      I think there was an episode on bush mechanics, where they used a tree trunk, as a drive shaft.

    4. Kevin Agostini

      Now make a cement or concrete drive shaft and use a pvc pipe as a mold 😬

    5. GRFN PRJX

      try with hardwood next time

    6. Drew Winstead

      stopped watching after you tried to sell me some credit app

    7. MrHaydenJr

      Diy carbon fiber driveshaft, use wood center it up in a fixture, then wrap it in carbonfiber mat/resin let cure, find someone with a lathe and turn it smooth

    8. Michael Johnsonbaugh

      Imagine coming upon that scene, an idle Mustang, shards of wood underneath said crowd-eater, and three men in labcoats examining said pieces of wood in the middle of the culdesac. Oh the things you see in Florida

    9. SlunkMonke


    10. Dan Kammerzelt

      Flintstones drive shaft.

    11. Wadi 369

      Do something with LineX

    12. BineThereDoneThat

      you guys should try and install a suspension torsion bar in place of the wood you just tried and see if it make wheel hop better or worse

    13. PhatSphinx

      put a crazy stiff spring in the middle (some how)

    14. Keith Thomas

      Perhaps oak or some hard wood other then pine. Its almost the softest weakest wood there is.

    15. ryan horne

      use pine same joints

    16. David Robinson

      I like how the torch is just burning away as Dr.Sprayemall is giving his hypothesis lmfao

    17. Pablo lV

      Clicked to let yal know yal stupid. The leaf blower video was awesome but this.....stupid

    18. Allen Sailers


    19. cody gill

      You guys should do a video where you take a car without a drive line and push it down the road to make it look like it was running and have the person park it running like a bait car 😂

    20. Renats Dubrovskis

      You shouldve tried ironwood way tougher

    21. Jacob Petrov

      It's funny James is still as completely serious and thoughtful as when he's getting Leroy ready for their races.

    22. Black HAT

      When you say dont try this at home your talking about the shaft right because i like lighting my friends on fire <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="124">2:04</a>

    23. Stephen Lubey

      Rubber drive shaft

    24. shavezwill1222

      A metal fence post

    25. Andreas Berglund

      Make another one! But this time straight and balanced. And also look for a pole from de center of the tree. That has complete fiber rings you know.

    26. Jeffrey Ziola

      I would try a solid piece of dry aged piece of wood like a old old barn wood

    27. Jeroen Kuivenhoven

      Tray it wiht hardwood😜

    28. vwharman

      Quarter sawn maple, good hardwood would at least have a shot at a burn out...

    29. Mark Phillips

      Get a wood lathe and turn it to size then wrap it with fiberglass and resin let cure and install it

    30. David Colwell

      Cleetus: Cuts drive shaft with a whoopdido ‘’Whatever dude it’ll work this is just science” lmao I found this so hilarious.

    31. Mophie

      Wood is super weak when twisted and that kind of wood is like so weak and brittle lol

    32. Cameron Ross

      concrete with rebar

    33. Neko Rodgers

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="125">2:05</a> is the butane torch just turned on and sitting on the table while he's flailing his arms around?

    34. J Coggs

      Should have used pressure treated! LOL

    35. Mike Adkins

      Use balsa wood. That will be like an unuptanium driveshaft

    36. zinger dwarf

      ld try hard wood(oak or cerry) rather than soft wood If you want to go all out use green curupy. i'm sure the results would be different

    37. Logan B

      Why do you still have pennies?

    38. master582

      Perhaps turning the wood on a Lathe first and then consider hollowing the shaft with a few support bands around the exterior like a barrel.

    39. Phi Helix

      Put metal straps down each side 2"thick x 1/4"w for strength.

    40. Carl Freiermuth

      try to make one with Hickory or that heavy dark wood from asia kamagong or steel wood, it has lots of names. It's even heavier than Hickory

    41. Hh Hh

      Why is their science car 100000 times better than my daily😭

    42. Russell Wright

      do it with a hard wood dude, Jarrah would be a great choice

    43. Terry Weston

      Bamboo, test a single large diameter, against canes duct taped together.

    44. Kyle Kuhbander

      That cooper dude just looks annoying. Strait debbie downer face in every episode.

    45. Eddie Tapuro

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1025">17:05</a> cleetus hits his head on the diff 😂 @cleetus mcfarland

    46. Bobby Loomis

      Weld a bunch of suspension springs inline and use as a drive shaft. Preload will be a MoFo

    47. Ryan Mcadams

      PVC pipe full of epoxy

    48. Vasili Panin

      No slip joint?

    49. Rob

      You used the softest wood ever lol try a decent hard wood

    50. Cameron1177

      Boys, it wasn't trying to pogo the car. That was a textbook joepoke.

    51. J2498

      I think Fred Flintstone designed the driveshaft.

    52. Jonathan Garrison

      I bet a round post would have fared better.

    53. Just1ofGod

      1 use a freaking lathe get it perfectly strait 2 use a hardwood might be able to do a burnout then.

    54. Mark Nowakowski

      Hahahahaha was a no brainer NO BUENO HOLMS

    55. Paul Davies

      Use the same wood and put some perforated angles on the edges for strength. Paul (New Zealand) let me know what you think? 🚘🚘

    56. N Venus

      What about a PVC drive shaft

    57. Matthew Califana

      Next time try to get the grain so is not offset (ring pattern ) Nice try the bolts workred

    58. riley smart

      Did it slept a lot

    59. Daniel Marek

      Should have used some thick wall PVC pipe.

    60. Chris Dowland

      Next time warp it in gorilla tape lol

    61. Kevin Willard

      Try to find a piece of eucalyptus wood and

      1. Kevin Willard

        Orientate the grain counter to the rotation and have someone turn it on a lathe

    62. shadowsaidhe

      if you were going to use wood you should have used hardwood and when it was still up on the hoist you could have at least used the grinder on it like a lathe to get it a bit better balanced

    63. cadmonkey928

      make a big chunk of rubber drive shaft. sketchy and strechy!

    64. Matthew Amador

      Do more stuff like this please!! Utilize the Freedom Factory while you're at it!

    65. George

      nice car

    66. Michael Colgan

      I would like to see a oak drive shaft totally dry like 5% moisture turned round by a guy who has a wood lathe . Then epoxy the ends together with 3/8 bolts try and get it balanced please for safety . It might work or not lol

    67. Michael Colgan

      OK two mistakes in 90 seconds first was allowing Experian boost to screw your credit giving them more info lol especially if you were late paying utilities lol ... Then you making a wooden drive shaft with wet home depot wood. I love watching you channel but you scare the shit out of me

    68. Dan The Tech

      square stock tac welded or see how well you can fill the gap between the square stock and the drive shaft ends

    69. Iam Brunskill

      Speaking of Dail I'm watching one of his old races on tv rn

    70. DAVIN DAHL


    71. Melting Hero

      I want a lego drive shaft video next please

    72. DrDysl3xia

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="722">12:02</a> I have a prediction... that exhaust is going to get blown off.

      1. DrDysl3xia

        Looks like the exhaust survived.

    73. Joe Szucs

      At least use an lvl or make your own.

    74. Greg Graham

      you should use Brazilian wood "Ipe"

    75. bryan diel

      Alright Garrett, dont let them tear up the 'Stanger with that soft ass wood! If you don't want it I'll take it!!

    76. Tony C

      Most dumbest thing I have seen

    77. That Pedal Shmoe

      More videos like this

    78. Texasrebel1967

      use a harder wood and have a woodshop put it on a lathe then balance it

    79. Benny T

      Gotta try this same test with bamboo...

      1. FiveMinuteHippo

        @Benny T Plus the weight advantage :-D

      2. Benny T

        @FiveMinuteHippo I'd think at least, bamboo would have more torsional strength than most hardwood even.

      3. FiveMinuteHippo

        Agreed, Bamboo should be way more durable.

    80. Apple Bag

      all them bald eagles tore her apart
