Rotella t6 causing clutch slippage

I just recently installed rotella t6 5w40 synthetic and belive that this is causing my clutch to slip when under hard acceleration. I thought rotella t6 was a pretty good oil for these Hondas. Has anyone else ever had a similar issue? Should I just drain my oil or put in a whole new clutch? Thanks guys

I've never had any problems with Rotella in my 400. Rotella is supposed to be certified JASO MA for wet clutches.
