Default Car wobbles slightky when accelerate

Does anyone have this problem? It feels as though the tyres are uneven, but it is only apparent during teh initial acceleration. Thereafter no wobble. what cud this be? its just irritating.

How many miles on the PT? Sounds like driveline (axles). I would think tire wouldn't vibrate only under acceleration.
Motor mount?[:I]

Sounds like you just may need a wheel alighnment or maybe your rims and tires need to be balanced. If they are not balanced properly they can cause this problem at certain speeds.

Are you launching so hard that the traction control is kicking in?

I had a similar problem with my old Spirit.While initially accelerating the front end would wobble then at speed would smooth out.It was a driveshaft tripod,this part keeps the drive shafts from moving longitudinally. You should take the car in ASAP if this the problem you are going to only see a lot more damage from whichever shaft is shifting.
Then again,hope your lugnuts are tight
