Chugging at take off

I put a bunch of miles on my 1.4T this weekend on Labor Day vacation. But I have noticed at take off from a dead stop it chugs a little bit, almost like the front end is vibrating. Kinda like if I took the traction control off and just mashed it, the front end kinda goes loose. I only have like 1500 miles on my Eco and it is bothering me that I go to take off and I can feel it in the front end.

Anyone else experience something similar?

Im running just regular unleaded so 87. And its in first gear and only until shift into second gear
Ahh, now that I think of it the A/C was on since I was doing mostly highway driving. I will have to notice it next time its on and I will also try 91 octane. I think that will help a lot too.

Thanks for the responses!!!!
