South Bend Slipped!!!

Ok guys so we went to the track last night I have the South Bend Performance towing clutch. I get up to the line and spoll up to about 1900 rpm as soon as i let off the clutch it slipped through 1, 2, and 3. So after that run I parked the truck let it sit for an hour or two then we were driving home and playing with a few dodge's and it nevered tried to slip. The only thing i can think of is that im trying to leave the line to hard. Any ideas on what the deal is. Thanks for the help in advance guys.

think you answered it your self already... you have a towing clutch not a racing clutch.

Also take off ur inspection plate and check to see if you have any oil leaking on your clutch.

Well that's what you would think. I guess the way im looking at it is that it should hold for atleast one run not slip right off the line. Heck it only has 5,000 miles on it.
