Tension on X0 type 2 rear mech

Does anyone know if the clutch on a Sram type 2 mech is adjustable?

I have an X0 type 2 mech and I keep losing the chain, the tension of the cage doesn't feel very high especially compared to a non clutch equipped Shimano rear mech. I know a clutch mech isn't going to stop all chain derailments but I have a shadow plus mech on my hardtail and have never dropped a chain riding similar terrain to the full susser.

The full groupset is X0 2x10 with e13 xcx cranks, gears are shifting fine.

My hardtail is SLX 2x10 with which I've never had a problem

    Mine failed and was replaced under warranty. If it's on a full suss you might start feeling it start to get notchy under compression
