Stutter in first, loss of power, cold start. Restarted, runs fine, no CeL

Hey all so the other day I was rolling out of my parents driveway (were visiting for a couple weeks) in Neutral, when I went to put the car in first it started 'chugging' and stuttering if that makes sense. Loss of power etc. Couldn't move forward much... (I was rolling down and then trying to drive forward relatively cold which I usually. Don't do)

We drove 7 hours to get out here and need to. Drive the 7 back tomorrow and were in the middle. Of this heat wave so I'm. Nervous.

Long and short: no CEL, has driven fine since, (drove 20m to take my fiance out)...

Apr Stage 2, 46k miles, I keep the OEM coil packs in My hatch just in case.

This happen to anyone. Else?

You mention that you keep the OEM coils in your hatch. Can I assume you're running R8s then? Also, when was the last time you replaced your spark plugs?
