Brand new monster clutch is toast

Ordered a brand new monster clutch and this happened after 400 miles.

I had a mccloed rxt1200 before and it lasted 17K miles.

This clutch was rated for 1300 RWTQ and it was slipping so easy. Tried to make it through the standard break in cycle of city driving and i could feel it slip after just 400 miles. Car makes about 850 TQ and 1000 HP at the wheels so the clutch shouldnt have had any issues.

Any opinions on why it did this?

based on the concentrated burn mark i would think the intermediate plate was hanging up and not sliding or staying parallel to the disks.

Gotta agree with fz4k98. Burn marks to one side are telling......can't tell from pics what drives the intermediate plate, or what the face of the pressure plate looks like, but without hands on it, might be the pressure plate was not pulled down flat to the flywheel ?

If your looking to undrstand the issue for this particular setup, you can set up an inspection station pretty easy and check the flatness of all parts. I had a problem with my dual disk not releasing and after a couple hours of work found the disk spline hubs were warped which caused the disks to be binding on the transmission shaft on release.

It only took a caliper, flat plate and some time to develop an inspection to understand it. I didnt want to just throw money at ii unless I understood it.
