hard acceleration shudder

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 1997; Engine (Size, Modifications): turbo, no mods; Total Mileage: 28000;

I recently purchased a one-owner 97 turbo with 28k miles from the original dealer. all service was performed there. I am still getting familiar with the car (I also have a 91 C4 cab.)Under hard acceleration, near redline, I get a strong shudder in the drive train. It goes away upon upshifting. Does this sound like a clutch problem, or am I just not upshifting soon enough? I have noticed this issue primarily in 2nd gear. I do know through service records that the dealer did install a new clutch a couple thousand miles ago. Thank you for your help.
