          Well y’all used pine which is a soft wood. Home Depot’s wood selection isn’t the greatest (I would know, I worked there for years) a hard wood that was better centered probably would have stood up decently.

                Fill a water butt with diet coke. Leave a hole in the top you can ad the mentos and have a valve on the bottom to release the pressure out the back of the boot and push it along. Make sure you can seal up the top hole quick after adding the mentos

                    this might have worked if the tires were wood as well.

                        A piece of hickory turned down on a lathe would make this doable.. maybe not for clutch dump. But driving on the farm for sure at least until the temp changes and it starts slipping

                              USE A LATHE the reason why it isnt centred is because when u shaved down the wood to attach the joint end it isnt exactly a circle, thus yoour drive shaft ends are not aligned anymore. and u can also shave down the corners as that will probably help aswell....

                                    You need to use a Lathe. If it was perfectly centered I think it would of lasted longer

                                      You should do a followup with better wood and use a lathe to round it off. Get a nice hard wood, and some better tools lol

                                                    use oak next time, heavy density and not as cheap i admit, and have it rounded to some degree before or after fitting the links :P

( 2 min. ) Forget the glue & lag bolts , use a bunch of small screws ... much more purchase on the wood . Won't hold up to a hole-shot , but would probably drive ok . :)
