When clutches wears off within a short period of time, it can be due to the following reasons.
1. Defect in the clutch cover, pressure insufficient thus excessive slippage during take of and gear shifts.
2. Insufficient pedal free play resulting in clutch self engaging.
3. Fault in the master cylinder, hoses or damper valves resulting in too high residual pressure.
4. Abuse which might be due to riding the clutch at inclines or too slow in releasing the clutch during gear changes. High performance engines and a haevy car tends to wears clutches fast so if you are too gentle with releasing the clutch during gear changes, you might be wearing the clutches faster than you expect.
Hope the above can help you located the cause of the problem.
