              I could have done without the horrible financial advice in the beginning. You guys got lucky if you're actually telling the truth.

                    I bet it would last pretty well if it was balanced.

                      You need a round piece of wood! Get wood in the same diameter as the stock one. Throw a piece on a wood lathe or something.

                          Use wood. Drill holes and fill with fiberglass resin. Then wrap entire wood length in fiberglass matting and resin.

                                        Rubber bands for a good windup. Like a manual trans brake -ish launch device. Cheaper alternative to the slipper clutch for Leroy

                                                  What about a marerial which is more tough? Bambus for example, too id maybe cut the wooden part a bit longer since its much more flexible than the metal shaft to prevent the difference between the both materials and twistabiltys? I hope that makes sense, funny idea tho. What about a giant spring as shaft? That would be interesting too

                                                    Use the same type of beam but run it through a lathe until its perfectly straight.

                                                      could soak the 4x4 in penetrating epoxy maybe

                                                        You could have taken a word turning tool like a bowl gouge and while it was on the rack. Turned the 4x4 down. That would have help balance it out.

                                                            balance it, wrap it with fiberglass, and you'll be good. use type 3 wood glue instead of resin though lol with denim instead of fiberglass

                                                              Start with a 6 x 6, turn it down on a lathe. Insert into ends and bolt/glue like you did. Coat entire shaft with jb weld & turn on lathe again. Then install & try it.

Avoid drilling holes threw it it will brake the grain and cause week spots in the wood. Not sure what to recommend for would but ash might be a good start

As you saw the wood grain is running the wrong direction for the strength you want, thus it laminated and exploded. Basically you want to make a composite material with wood and epoxy.
