Default Showing off isn't cool

I have a 2003 Audi tt coupe 1.8 turbo 6 speed quattro & today I decided it was a good idea to do a donut in a dirt parking lot.
I cranked the wheel almost all the way to the left & dumped the clutch right around 4,500rpms..

So I had to drive home after this, roughly 30 miles. Under load/taking off & shifting through gears it makes a horrible grinding/dragging/shake (only under load) at & even speed no matter what gear it goes away but as soon as I accelerate the grinding/dragging/shake comes back?

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

Sincerely, showing off isn't cool.

You have either a torn driveshaft flex joint or a failed motor mount. Can’t know which without personal inspection. You’ll need a competent mechanic to look at it. Don’t drive it if you don’t have to. Other components can be damaged by the out of position parts. It will be an expensive lesson but not terribly so. Good luck.

Also, suggest you move your TT MK1 related questions to that sub forum.
