No Fan Shroud

Hey, I want to know your guys take on not having a fan shroud for a short period of time. My shroud recently got shredded to pieces by my fan. Now either the shroud wasn't placed right or something is causing my car to bounce. Im sure if i leave the fan alone with no shroud the fan will be secure. Now i just want to know how much does the shroud really do? Would I be able to drive for longer than an hour? My car has never crossed towards the Hot side of the thermostat. My plan is to place a new fan back in and drive for a bit until i can get it inspected for the engine mounts and other parts that might be causing bad balance. Thanks!

Which fans does your car have? Single fan behind the radiator or e-fan before the rad and mechanical fan behind the rad?

It has two. One in front of the radiator and one behind it which is the mechanical fan where the shroud covers.
