Check the transmission oil. Also you may want to swing by an Autozone or somewhere similar and have them hook it up to a computer and see if they get any diagnostic codes.

Do you have a 5 speed and you are shifting into second? Or, are you putting it in 2 with an auto? 5-speed...can't help you. Auto- you are making it start in second gear and a lot of power is being lost to the torque converter instead of transferred to the road.
