Quoting jepherz:

I don't think there's any possibility for any broken or stripped splines or half shafts, as this would have been very noticeable and would make horrible noise.

If the CV joint is worn enough then I've seen the two halves spin independently in the boot with no outward indication. The boot will get torn up eventually.

Double-check the joints and that axles are fully seated.

If you already had the clutch adjusted properly then you shouldn't need to again but it wouldn't hurt to give the hydraulic system another once over:

When I bought my car it had a broken front diff from being towed with the rear on the ground.

When I test drove it, I broke it completely to where only the back wheels were driving the car forward.

The motor acted like it was slipping at the clutch. There was no noise after the first bang when the diff let go. The car drove fine under light throttle and as soon as boost hit it would still go forward but not matched to the revs.

I would bet that your issue is inside the tranny.
