Um it shouldn't have burnt out that fast. Mine is going on 15k with no issues. But as far as other brands look into Centerforce or McLeod.

You have something very wrong if your clutch is only lasting 1000 miles.

1. Either installed wrong
2. You need to learn to drive.

Brake stands?!?
Well that explains it!

The clutch that you HAD is fine but skimping on the clutch cable is probably what caused your problem. You need to use a Motorcraft or Ford Racing cable and it needs to be adjusted correctly for the clutch to work properly and have a nice long life.
Also, I know that you had 1K miles on it but clutch manufacturers such as Mcleod recommend that you drive the car for 600 CITY MILES (About 1200 clutch engagements) before doing any hard dyno pulls or spirited driving... Such as burnouts!

The clutch is not the problem here... consider this an expensive lesson in automotive care.

If it's not the clutch then what's the problem?
