The most important thing for clean (& efficient) rip cuts are power, alignment, the right blade & having a sharp blade. You can sacrifice a little efficiency when giving up a little power but the remainder are all very important. From where you’re at, I would buy a new, quality thin kerf ripping blade and recheck the alignment once more just to be sure and give it another go.
