Both were sachs sport clutches.
Can any give some advice? Ive done alot of clutches in my life with success however on my rocco i seem to be having issues this is the 2nd one in a row ive done this to. Is it improper installation, faulty clutch or bad driving?

Well it looks dry, so you can probably rule out a leaking rear main.
It doesn't look burned?
I don't know. I have never seen that before. It looks like the glue let loose and it fell apart.
Are you especially hard on it? Any reason it would get really hot?
Are the flywheel and pressure plate smooth or chewed up? It almost looks like someone went at it with a cheese grater.
Holy crap, the devastation! I'm inclined to think there's a problem with your flywheel/pressure plate, barring manufacturing defects. This being the second time you're seeing this, I think you should look at your contact surfaces and related assemblies.
Edit: Just saw your response ^ This is quite a mystery. Balance issue with the crank perhaps?
Edit #2: All your shims in place? I seem to remember seeing at least one shim the last time I looked at an assembly off the car. I know it's basic, but the devil's in the details sometimes.

I have to assume the picture shows just how it cam off the engine. Look at your own picture real careful. Notice that on the hub there are words printed around it. Notice the ones which say "flywheel side". Your picture shows the flywheel side facing the engine, bad thing to do. But thanks for the pictures I can store in my files.
You put it in basakwards. The plates that hold the disk are bent to hell and just like the one before said, ( read the hub Flywheel side)
