        needs to be laminated boards, with the grains crossed.

          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.

                I think you could have used a bit more glue

                    Seriously, use laminated live oak with oposing grain lines which is a native species to Florida.

                      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.

                            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

                                      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.

                                        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.

                                            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.

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

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

                                                            Should have used a wood Turner lathe

                                                              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 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.
