new clutch be slippin

hey all again, I have less than 2000 miles on a new clutch and flywheel in my '00 SH, and sometimes it decides to slip.
example one: driving for about 5 miles and get on the freeway, and I notice it slips in every gear, and I feel it engage just millimeters before my foot comes off the pedal. then I get off the freeway and I have a normal working clutch again, open the throttle and no slip.
example two: I drive 210 miles, park the car for two days, and then on the way home, when I get on the interstate (7 miles after starting the car) it slips again, and can't really feel it engage. 2 hours later at a junction, its still slipping, then BOOM the last 60 miles of my trip its a normal working clutch again.
my master is a generic POS that the PO installed along with a generic POS slave. I couldn't get the system bled and put the slave cylinder off my '92 on. got it bled (this was before the clutch change)
I have re-bled the system since new clutch
I am guessing (and hoping) its a faulty slave/master?
this last time it was slipping on the interstate I pulled over and looked to see if the slave piston was returning all the way and it looked like it was.
so doesn't this sound like a problem in the line? I can't back up the legitimacy of my master and slave cylinder, one is not OEM and one has who knows how many miles, so I am going to replace those, and decided to see if anyone here can shed insight to my issue first. thanks in advance

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: new clutch be slippin

Sounds like something with the fork and throw out bearing. I did one on a 240sx where the fork wasn't popping back all the way to allow full pressure on the flywheel and clutch.

Re: new clutch be slippin

Maybe dirty when installed?
Under torqued clutch bolts?
New or old flywheel would make a difference also.
Exedy is fairly ok Oem replacement. . . Is it possible the fork is bent. .preventing full engagement
