clutch disc problem

ok i bought this clutch about 6 months ago, recently i have had engagement problems and have done adjustments and it improved for a short period but then just went back to the same old ****. today my father and i have dropped the tranny and we now have the clutch out. the clutch disc is completely ****ed up, the side that rests on the pressure plate has none of the pads left however the flywheel side looks brand new. what would have caused that?

this is wayyy old, ive already replaced the clutch and its back on the road. it was my driving that broke the clutch though, shiftin hard and droppin the clutch. i completely tore the clutch padding off the pressure plate side thats why it began slipping. i was being a dumb *** and a new driver and didnt realize how hard i really was on that clutch.

nope i have figured it out. i was very rough on the clutch(just completely dropping the clutch and flooring it, dont do that anymore, as i have learned my lesson) and this is what caused it, i never ride the clutch. i always keep my foot off the clutch and rest it on the dead pedal as soon as i can.
