Sounds like you may still have an air pocket that needs to be worked out. Do your wheels spin when the clutch is floored?

have someone sit in the car pump the clutch five times then hold it in. then take a 11mm socket with long extention and loosen the nipple on the trans. see flui dleak out and close it, repeat this bout 5 times. I had to do this when I did my engine build. because when I went to first turn the key the car would take off with the turn of the key because of massive air pockets

The generic brake fluid will work fine...

The only way i've found to properly bleed the clutches on these cars is a pressure bleeder. I believe FSwerks sells one. I've never had any luck with manual bleeding, gravity bleeding, or even vacuum bleeding.
