hi put y did it slip in the first place

Clutches are very similar to brakes!
Excessive use of brakes can cause brake fade where th disc gets so hot that they no longer work!
The same thing could have happened to your clutch!

The foolproof way to check a slipping clutch is to put it in fourth gear with the handbrake on then rev the engine and let the clutch out slowly if the motor stalls the clutch should be fine!
If the engine still runs you need a new clutch!

Would suggest if you try the test as per Digger driver, you keep the footbrake down as well, otherwise you might find the clutch is fine but the handbrake is kn***ered:ROFLMAO:
