    If your using ATF and its slipping a little,there another reasion for it. You have to use ATF or an gear oil made to work with wet clutches.

    probably dex 4 or some sh*t with friction modifiers. try ford type atf (or as its written on the bottle so as not to confuse you); ATF TYPE F

    If it is adjusted correctly and you are using ATF type F, and it is slipping, the problem is possibly the friction plates.
