Flexible drivetrain couplings

I'm looking for some lightweight flexible drive train couplings for use in place of c.v. joints.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
They're for use in the centre drive shaft of a little four wheel drive race car, and only need to handle a few degrees of misalignment, hence trying to get rid of c.v.s
Hooke's joints are an option, obviously, but I'd rather use something lighter than them still, if possible.
They should also ideally be a little cheaper than c.v's
cheers
The pin.

I remember my old mini had a rubber coupling setup.
