Need a little bit more info such as what kind of transmission you have. If its a auto then I believe that your transmission is going out and would have it looked at by a transmission specialist.

08 GT Hurst Shifter, Fidanza clutch, JLT CAI, Kooks Longtubes and O/R X, BBR tune, SSS Terminator mufflers, M80 mufflers, Eibach pro kit, Eibach struts and shocks, Asanti AF 135 rims, 295/35/20 rear tires More to come!

You are probably low on transmission fluid. Check it right now. Read your manual on how to check it on your particular car because some are different than others. You either check it with it running or check it with it turned off after you have it at running temp usually. If it is low, add fluid to it immediately. Maybe you got to it before it's to late. Hopefully you didn't damage it. If it helps, you need to check for leaks to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Or maybe a clogged catalytic converter/exhaust? Causing it to not respond right away when you gas it.

+1 on low trans fluid. My '89 did the same thing. I checked the fluid and it was low. A fresh change of fluid/filter and I had no more slip.
