First thought is an out-of-round (out of spec), Torque Converter. Next is a bent input shaft on the transmission. This usually also exhibits a front seal leak, But Not always. Also could be a manufacturing defect on the transmission to engine alignment. This MUST be straight and flush.
My thoughts on where I would begin.

If the engine and transmission don't mate exactly right (like for example, there are burrs on the engine or trans mating surfaces from jamming a screwdriver between the two to separate them), then the crankshaft and transmission input shaft won't be perfectly aligned. Everything will still bolt up, however. The flexplate will be forced to accommodate, and flex where it bolts to the crank. The flexing will crack and break it.
So, if this keeps happening, you have something out of round or the engine and trans aren't precisely mated. Or you've been dropping 6-grand neutral bombs.
