my mind is blowing the clutch before you nuke the transmission or snap the ujoints/cvs course nobody is gonna be slamming the gas petal down every time they want to go cause tire traction issues come up at that point.
Ah... you're thinking of the clutch slipping as the "fuse". (y)
The novel thing about ToyXCAB89's coupler is using the end of a crankshaft as the basis for a coupler, not the idea of using a clutch; using a clutch is very common (and until recently was almost the universal design).

In practice, tire traction is typically the torque limitation, not failure of any driveline component.
