Gains from an aluminum driveshaft?

If I change converters again, it would be an opportune time to upgrade a driveshaft? What are the gains going to a one piece aluminum?

Lighter, one piece also has less vibration - less vibration means less energy lost - less energy lost means more power to the wheels.

What you will get with a one pc ds is a much stronger ds that wont leave you stranded. It will give you a more SPORTY feel,tighter since there is no rubber. It is however no lighter ,the stock shaft is very small and only weighs 16.5lbs which is very light so there isnt much difference in our carbonfiber or alum shaft when it comes to weight...If i can help anyone out with any of our different shaft options at an unbeatable deal let me know.
