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

            Plywood. Get a sheet of good plywood and cut it into strips, glue it, screw it and make a square post.

                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....🤦‍♂️

                      Use some stainless zip ties every couple of inches down the shaft to maybe help it hold together.

                                                  Make one out of concrete but make sure it has reo bar in it for strength.... maybe even do one with bar and one without to compare? 🤷‍♂️

                                                    Do the same but keep it on the lift an a grinder nd let idle nd grind it to balance

                                                      Idea - I recently broke my hand and had a cast put on. The material forms perfectly as it is wrapped and it is amazingly strong. It may be expensive though, I don't know.

                                                        Cover it with line-x bed liner
                                                        That's stuff is super strong it can make an egg unbreakable so it should make the wooden driveshaft unbreakable
