Default Broke my clutch disc

So I did this:

ACT part number 6224208 roughly 1 year old with 9000 miles.
Broken spring retainer on one side of the disc and a crack on the opposite side.
I'm not sure if this is a common issue or not.
Overpowered? What do some of the 350+whp guys use for clutches besides twin disc setups?

This is in a TII transmission before that question comes up.

Had a similar issue with a Spec disc after less than 1,000 miles.

Went to a fully "captured" spring (clutchnet disc) and it has gone 4,000 miles w/o fail.

This is why I gave up and went solid center.

Wow you popped the springs out of an ACT thats weird. Normally only see those piece of **** SPEC disks do that. I'm in the bundy solid hub club, but I wont do it with normal friction materials.
