Help. Stutters when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear

Hello, I purchased a 2004 5mt coupe in Sept. Of 2018. Car had 232k miles when I bought it but has been very well maintained by previous owner. So far I've replaced a/c compressor and spark plugs.

Problem: when accelerating hard (anything above 60-70% throttle) from 0 the car seems to stutter a bit before shifting into 2nd gear. It jolts backs back and forth just before shifting at around 4500-5500 rpm. It only does this from 1st-2nd and 2nd-3rd. 3rd and so on feel strong and actually pull harder then the lowere gears.

If I'm going highway speeds and mash the accelerator it pulls hard and shifts fine. Issue only seem to happen when I accelerate hard from low speeds.

Any ideas? Btw other than this car runs as well as you'd expect from a car with so many miles.

And has the rear differential bushing ever been checked to see if it's any good?

Hello and thank you for your response! I have seen you on other posts and am glad to see you saw mine! Let me apologize first and say that I mistakenly posted this twice and do not know how to delete one of them.

The other thread has been responded to and someone has had the same thing happen along with the video they posted! There is updated info on that one and pictures.

To answer your question though, no to both of those. I have only taken my car to my mechanic for issues I've noticed while owning the car. I forgot to mention I had and oil change 2 months ago.
