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

      1. Squrkols

        PVC pipe, rebar and concrete

      2. Jordan

        Should have used JB Weld for the epoxy.

      3. Nate 2283

        Laminated wood beam

      4. NJ in the MJ


      5. David Dickerson

        PVC filled with JB weld.

    2. Dennis Kaasjager

      Use hardwood

    3. Homeless-Brazilian

      Get a stronger wood and throw it in a lathe to see what happens

    4. Nate Sosa

      Try some bamboo!!

    5. Nate Sosa

      Resin stabilized wood would be badass!

    6. duramax502

      PVC pipe

    7. Adam Mohammed

      Man I always wondered about this

    8. DeviceMangler

      Drive shaft needs some FiberFix. They built a rollcage for a car out of that stuff and drove it off a cliff. It survived.

    9. Crazyey

      no-one going to mention his sleek back hair and his nerd glasses XD

    10. Dave David

      Use the car as a wood lathe and sandpaper it till its balanced

    11. Black Dot

      Wow that drive shaft lasted longer than Jeffrey Epstein in jail

    12. Bradlee Blazintires

      Oak probably would've lasted a bit longer. Maybe put a PVC pipe over it

    13. Alan Benzo

      These guys don’t know what a lathe is

    14. Chris

      I knew it wooden work.

    15. RCPro Driver

      needs to be laminated boards, with the grains crossed.

    16. Lithuanian GLOCK31_NH420

      The wood will easily... it's your connections that will fail. You know wood is ofter a stronger and lighter choice other than steel. If you were an engineer you would know this.

    17. Adam Weaver

      Ya'lls need to calm down.

    18. Patrick

      Soak the wood with a resin.....

    19. The Prometheus Report

      I think you could have used a bit more glue

    20. Adam Gee

      You guys still have pennies?

    21. Dave Pawson

      "Sorry sir, you need to treat your car with Terminex once a year as you live in the termite belt." Seriously, use laminated live oak with oposing grain lines which is a native species to Florida.

    22. Evan Jones

      Y'all have a quality shop, but no access to a lathe?🤔 Treat the next drive shaft with Lin/flax seed oil... It will harden the wood.

    23. Odie Ecklund

      Listen, listen, it worked for a bit. Soooooo technicallyyyyy

    24. Jeff Neely

      What's next a wooden turbo?

    25. DayTripperCrack

      I have the same exact car they used, A 1995 although mine is cherry red and the interior is completely custom and miss matched looks really nice. The best car I’ve ever driven to date probably always will be personally

    26. Hasiel Mena


    27. MrVBG

      PVC pipe with concrete?


      how about a concrete drive shaft

    29. SwapSupra

      do the same but wraped in ducktape!

    30. Lucky Muse

      Glue some 1×1s together, then round the sides down on a wood lathe, like your making a post. Thats how they make wood beams , and they are super strong.

    31. Lucky Eights

      Dont test a new driveshaft IMPROVE! have someone with a woodshop turn you a peice of hardwood like oak. Fit into the shaft. Then carbon fiber the whole shaft. By my mullet calculations you should have no problem doing a burn out or 6.

    32. Chris Dorr

      Turn your car into a lathe ;)

    33. The Sworded Beardsman

      The first airplane props were made out of wood, Try some hickory or oak and turn it down with a lathe to fit tight in the driveshaft ends.

    34. David Kelm

      hard wood worth a try

    35. Joshua Pierre

      Garage54'in it haha, could have seen how thin you could go, used steel rebar. I wanna see if the mustang is strong enough to twist it.

    36. Allen .Berge

      They should have put it on lathe to balance it out more.

    37. sinaloa tc

      Try bamboo

    38. jacob 4wol

      You should fill a tube with spaghetti noodles and flex seal and use that as the drive shaft

    39. Anthony Alit

      Make one out of concrete!

    40. Anthony Alit

      Now this is automotive internet done properly

    41. Lairex Rai

      Should have used a wood Turner lathe

    42. KingKingg

      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

    43. ponchis1966

      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

    44. Mihai Kober

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

    45. GrifFungin

      Definitely a paid commercial for Gorilla Glue

    46. Jacey Heiner

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

    47. Spiz D

      You're not even country at all should change your name pussy

    48. amicidavinci

      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.

    49. Retrogamer1010

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

    50. brandon Cherry

      need to use bowdark or hardwood..

    51. Wanja Schonecke

      wood and epoxy? :)

    52. landau46t

      And here’s me thinking you were going to turn it down on a lathe...

    53. Ethan Mathias

      Try a fiberglass one

    54. Boys Rback

      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!!

    55. Joni English

      MAYBE choose a Different WOOD Plywood or a HARDWOOD !!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOD is Very Strong !!!!!!!!!!!!! Looks what Happens to a CAR hits a TREE !!! Car Splits in Half and Tree is still there - INTACT

    56. harleycharley

      So much for "pound for pound, wood is stronger than steel" Yeah right!

    57. fernando

      You gotta wrap the wood with steel or heavily reinforce it

      1. fernando

        @Joshua Pierre 😆 did not notice that till now

      2. Joshua Pierre

        your dad shoulda wrapped it, jk jk I just had to say it.

    58. Sound_trick_clique Stc

      Try another one lol

    59. GOLF super sound Mix ööö


    60. Yuck Foutube

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