It looks like a standard clutch design, but Ford's been having big problems with their dual-friction (I think that's what they call it) clutches in their latest HP models. That does show consistent heat checking in the entire friction area, as opposed to someone doing burnouts, where the heat checks are always 'blossomed' from inconsistent points on the friction surfaces. IMHO, this is a bad problem, almost like the machining settings are off, or the Belleville spring just isn't putting enough pressure on the pressure plate. Those are only guesses, though.
