I dont know any company that makes lighter driveshafts but it may not be cost effective. You can contact Prototype Technologies Group at www.ptgracing.com and see what kind of driveshaft they use.

I forgot to mention that yes there are frictional forces such as the gears in the transmission and in the differential. Remember there are frictional losses too in your engine! Best way to counter this is forced induction with the use of a turbo.
