RX4 Propshaft - doing without it

Interested to read about the last Forum user who's removed the propshaft. I've been reading all the horror stories about exploding gearboxes. Seems that lack of oil is a primary cause, but could it also be the 'tail wagging the dog' inasmuch as if the shaft starts vibrating, that knackers the box? I've thought about removing the sahft but given it's an 80:20 split under normal use, what are the side effects? If anyone knows, please tell!
