Is it the TPS?

Only happens at WOT, though.  No misses when accelerating gradually all the
way to redline.

This is most likely the result of water somewhere in the ignition.  I
suggest pulling and drying ignition related connections.

I've been mashing the accelerator pedal of my 200q20v Avant and enjoying the
results ever since getting it rolling again a couple years ago.
Yesterday, after a night of very heavy rains, I experienced a really heavy,
jerking, scary hesitation when I had the foot to the floor.
I can run the engine up to near red line by slowly advancing the accelerator
pedal as long as I don't go to WOT.  Sounds, runs normally. 
But hit the floorboard and I get this horrendously heavy jerking like the
engine cuts out completely.  It's worse than the A/C clutch spike I got on
my 200q20v sedan before the Audi mod was performed.
Would this result from a bad throttle position switch?
