Clutch slipping in 3rd and 4th gear?

I went to the drag strip this past weekend in my 01 Bullitt. For the first 1/8 mile or so, the car ran strong. My best 60ft time was 1.95 with a reaction time of like .073 so the car was launching very well but whenever I would shift into 3rd gear it would slip a little and then even worse in 4th to the point that it would not engage fully. I have a Ram Clutch in the car and an adjustable Steeda cable. Can anyone tell me what the heck happened because it totally ruined some very good runs for me and I am curious.
Could it be possible that I have my clutch pedal adjusted up to high and it is as simple as moving it down a bit?

Thanks for any advice

Try adjusting it first, after that you know what comes next!!!
The highest load on the clutch is 4th, so if you can not adjust it out then a new clutch is in your future. If the pedal engages in the middle or toward the bottom you probably need a clutch, if it is at the top before it engages then you have some adjustment left.
Yes, it is at the very top which is pretty nice for on the street because I can basically push the clutch far enough with minimal movement of my legs.
